    Looks like a Sturmabzeichen to me.

    I think you were right first time, an Infanterie Sturmabzeichen. You can see the rifle sling hanging down.

    Open the picture and take a better look, im sure that is not an IAB. The rifle should start from the right side of the bottom, but on this medal it looks like theres no rifle...

    I have opened the picture and I can see what I believe is a rifle and the sling.

    Who is this Ritterkreuztrager anyway?

    It appears to be an Infanteriesturmabzeichen to me as well.

    Unteroffizier Walter Pape of Infanterieregiment 211.

    Die Trger des Ritterkreuzes des Eisernen Kreuzes 1939 - 1945

    (And it is, of course, an Infanteriesturmabzeichen.)

    I've just looked at it on 400% zoom. You are incorrect and everyone else is right i'm afraid old fruit.
