    Default Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen - R.S.

    Picked this up today.

    Got some grainy pictures a week ago and it seemed to compare to one of the late war Souval variants.

    Looked for the same thread today but could not find it.

    Could someone let me know which one this is?

    Overall, condition is excellent with 98% of the gilt remaining. Given the 0 F weather I couldn't go outside to take decent pictures so my photos are not the best with some glare. (I've ordered a light box kit so hopefully in a week I won't have any more excuses)

    Any and all comments are welcome.

    Regards,

    Michael

    Hi Michael,
    Ned will have the definative answer but it appears okay to me.

    Hi Michael,

    As you say the obverse shots leave a bit to be desired when it comes to being absolutely certain on a badge that is well faked, but having said that the reverse side of this 'Round letter type' logo is typical in the fact that the oval shaped hinge guide has a larger rectangular based sheet metal hinge applied that protrudes over the top rim of this marked area.That is typical of these 1.14.2 type badges and from what I've seen the fakes employ an oval based hinge to match the rim everytime. The catch with rounded base plate appears good, and other variants of that are known to have been used as well.

    Regards, Ned.

    As always Ned, Thanks!

    While I couldn't find that original thread, that is what you said there as well (however I couldn't remember the variant #'s. Sorry to make you say it all again.

    Once my light box comes (or the temp rises enough to be able to stay outside) I will try to get better pictures of the obverse for you.

    Regards,

    Michael

    A nice wartime ASA Souval, just as it should be. Stewy

    Ned/Stewy,

    Here is a better shot of the front taken in daylight. Hope this helps you. Also a picture next to my Karnath and type 1.27.2.

    With these better lighting conditions I would say 85% of gilt is remaining.

    Any feedback is appreciated.

    Michael

    Michael, I've gotta say it seems odd that a Souval should retain so much finish on the obverse. Stewy

    No problems regarding the finish for me, the example in Frank's book is almost identical, being far more resistant on the obverse than the reverse side. I've seen a few of their GAB's in this condition, and it makes me wonder if the finish applied to them was different to that of their PAB's as it's very difficult to find them with any finish at all. The quality of both base material and wash finishes at this stage of the war (around 1942 onwards) gradually degraded, the golden age of quality combat awards was but a memory and this fact is obvious when you see badges devoid of any finish whatsoever.

    A very nice original piece that contrasts well with your other badges, they look great!

    Regards, Ned.
