German WWII Infantry Assault Badge in Bronze-This badge is unmarked, but it is a beauty. It retains the majority of its bronze finish, but it is very subdued. The details and tone are beautiful. This badge is slightly vaulted. This badge has a very interesting catch, please take a look at the photos. The barrel hinge and pin setup function perfectly. This is a pretty little badge to add to your collection. 

History: The infantry assault badge was introduced on December 20th, 1939, by Generaloberst Walther von Brauchitsh, as an award for officer’s and EM/NCO’s of non-motorized infantry and Mountain infantry units. The criteria for the badge varied, with the main qualification being the participation in three separate infantry assaults On June 1st, 1940, a bronze version of this Infantry Assault Badge was introduced as an award to Officer’s and EM/NCO’s of Motorized infantry units. The criteria for the bronze badge matched those of the silver badge; again, with the main qualification being the participation in three separate motorized infantry assaults.
