Infanterie Sturm-Abzeichen - Bedrucktem Stoff
Thought I would share this example with you.
This is a Bedrucktem Stoff or Printed Fabric ISA.
It matches others I have seen and one in particular shown in Klietmann's book "Auszeichnungen des Deutschen Reiches 1936 - 1945".
These also share the same characteristics as the known cloth Wound Badge examples.
After some negotiations with the previous owner, it now resides in my collection.
Because these have not been seen on tunics in period photo's, they remain a controversial item...interesting to me none the less.
Best Regards, fischer

Hi mate, nice one. These would've been late war for sure but very plausible. I wonder if they were Volksturm/HJ issue. Perhaps we'll learn more in the future. Stewy
Controversial or not, a collection such as yours would be lacking without an example of these!
What grades have you seen and what grade is this considered to be?

Hi Ralph, I'm not sure if there are grades of these. The one Fischer posted is the only variant I've seen. If anything this would go down as a silver, I guess. To me it's almost "neutral" grade. That's why I thought these may be more widely issued to Volksturm/HJ. I'm sure there are a lot more surprises to come in the next few years of T.R. collecting. Stewy
