Looks like a Rudolf Karneth, this is one of the most common GAB variant, easy to get one in minty condition for a fair price, this one is in a ground dug condition, so only grab it if the price is very low.
I go wih Janos.
Hi again guys, so sorry for the silence. Have been away for a while.
I want to thank you everyone for their comments.
Anubis, Thank you very much for clarifying the maker. I thought it was ok to have a ground dug badge, especially since it was $50. This is my first authentic Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen (since the other one I had turned out to be a fake).
The only issue was that it got discolored after I left it in soap water to remove all the dust and grime. Now I have to figureout how to get it back to its normal look.
Thank you very much to all once again
You're gonna have to paint it now......
