Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen

Article about: bought it from an militaria dealer in Belgium, now is the question real or fake?

    You're both right regarding the finish.

    To quote Frank Heukemes:

    "This Karneth General Assault Badge displays a shiny, almost chrome like finish, much the same as on some of this maker's Panzer Assault Badges..."

    And regarding the reverse side:

    "...The finish is more matt and grainy than that found on the obverse..."

    So, nothing wrong with your keen eyes chaps.

    Regards, Ned.

    I agree, here are some photos of two RK Panzerkampfabzeichen, two different finishes.

    No to out-do Frank who is a great researcher in his field- could someone show another one with unfinished outside edges?

    thanks,

    Lifted off WAF, not the best angle of the outside edge, but there is a rough edge visible.

    Thanks for the links Ned. I'll respectfully stick with my opinion on that one.

    cheers
