    Default 1957 Pattern Infanterie-Abzeichen

    Hi, just wanted to learn some more about these 57 pattern IF badges. How common are they and what should a regular one like this be worth? This example is for sale for 45 Euro at a dealers site. Is it someone who knows how many that were produced?

    Thanks Al

    S&L or Souval were the most prominent makers of '57 awards. Not sure who the maker is of this one. I'm not "au fait" with '57er's" though, sorry. Stewy

    Hello Al

    I agree with Stewy and the badge you show is considered an early S&L high quality example and is unmarked. There are identical examples that have an "o" as a mm on the reverse. The 57er badge Stewy shows is also an S&L example but is considered produced a decade later. The easiest way to tell is the reverse hardware.

    The firm of Deumer also produced a "true" 57er Infanterie Sturmabzeichen snas the adler and are of high quality also.
    Here are some of my examples.

    The badge looks to be in very nice shape and is worth the asking price IMO.

    Best regards, fischer

    Al, the Infanterie Sturmabzeichen you show is as fischer states a good early one, the type preferred by 57er collectors, the price IMO for an early one is cheap ! I have examples of early, mid and late badges, the later badges are easy to spot by their hardware, they have what collectors call an "open hinge" and usually a gaudy finish with no polished high lighting.....As well as St u L and Deumer there is a rarer maker of these 57' Infanterie Sturmabzeichen badges, the firm of Assmann.
    Here are three of my Infanterie Sturmabzeichen, first images show an early 1957-1960 Bronze version, next two images show a mid production 1960's example, with closed hinge block, the last two images a late after1968, open hinge assembly and larger "C" catch ......note also that all St u L versions have a bevelled inner, most evident on second photo in post #3. If you search through the Bundeswehr sub section you will find more information on the range of 1957 awards.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Hi Steve

    Do you have an Assmann 57er Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in your collection? I have only seen one example over the years and whenever anyone mentions an Assmann 57er on the various fora, it is this example that I mention that is posted.

    After reading your post, I am hoping you have one.

    Best Regards, fischer
