    This is actually an Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen/ General Assault badge...and although it looks good to me, I'd like to see other opinions to be sure...
    cheers, Glenn

    Its a very common fake, a similar variant was posted to this forum not so long time ago.

    Very soft in detail and the bayonet 'blood gutter' just looks plain wrong. I have to agree with Janos on this one, walk away!

    Strange one this. It's a Staegemeir copy of a 70's English fake! Old Carsten bopped a drollock when he unwittingly chose a fake badge to use as a master for his own version of what, if it were original, would have been the hollow backed GAB by B.H.Mayer.

    Here's an example of the same badge above made by Staegemeir. Note that the detail is softer than the English fake it was copied from.

    And here's the 'English fake' badge that the one above was mistakenly copied from. The point of the bayonet, detail on the oak leaves, acorns and the bird in general, are all slightly different. This one is 'Unknown maker 2' in Frank Heukemes's book.
