    Default JFS Grade IV (75) Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen.

    Hi Guys,

    As some of you are aware, I've been dropping hints on the forum that I was expecting a big ticket purchase from the States whilst not divulging what it was. Well, it got here this morning after a long delay with U.K. customs, and I could not be happier with it. I think only one or two genuine ones owned by members here have been shown before so I'm proud to join that group. It is I believe as fine a conditioned grade IV GAB as you're going to get, this thing is not a badge, it's a jewel.

    Instead of conking on as I usually do, I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves in this case as nothing needs adding to that really, although any questions please feel free to ask if you like.

    Obverse and reverse, weight is bang on at 40.8 grams.

    Lower part of the badge showing the crossed bayonet and grenade, the number box, and a flaw on the central vein of the bottom right oak leaf that is found on many (but not all) JFS grade IV GAB's.

    Beautiful Ned. Well done!

    P.S. I think I was close with the guessing game. If I remember correctly I guessed a PAB 75....
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
