    Default Early 57er General Assault Badge

    Gents, one of several 57er awards I have picked up over the last couple of weeks, this is a nice early General Assault Badge by St u L, more stunning in the flesh, the photo does not do it justice ! Frosted with burnished highlights, and in very good condition....enjoy. These early pieces are the ones most collectors desire...advising would be "newbie" collectors of 57er's against the later production pieces, I personally like all the 57 awards, early,mid or late production, there is a place in every collection for all varients, good or bad, (so long as they are original pieces, as fakes are now appearing !) and I personally will never call them "crap" as on other forums. Prost ! Steve.

    N.B. the GAB in 57 form was also available as a rivited two piece award, marked with a small plaque at the base with either 25,50,75 and even a 200 (causing much much dabate) for multiple assaults.

    Mark, that is one of the complaints about late production pieces ! this one is caused either by poor finish/use or misuse !
    Prost ! Steve.
