    As far as I know, all clamshell screw back Kriegsabzeichen should be viewed as fake. I certainly don't remember seeing any that have been called original.
    Happy to be corrected though...........

    There has been debate on these pieces for years now. Some say that they are correct and others believe them to be made in the 70's. Personally, I don't believe that this particular badge here is genuine as the details look considerably different from a genuine Assman badge-the eagle's head, the acorns,the eagle's legs and talons, etc. I don't have a copy at hand, but you might want to check out Frank Heukeme's excellent book on the GAB.

    RZM.com- Your online source for WWII books & more! is offering a copy for 99 bucks, which is a deal, considering that Amazon has 1 copy they want $215 for. "German Awards of WWII Volume 1: The General Assault Badge" By Frank Heukemes

    True, listed on pg 386 of Frank's book as fake.

    The bayonet,eagle & hardware are awful. I've also seen a "frosted" one of these at a show a while back. Stewy
