    I bought this a while ago, year or two after I started collecting. One Thing that really throws me off is the hing.
    I saw a ww2 dealer site with the same hing, but that is the only one like that I have seen.

    I was wondering if anyone can tell me little bit about the hing and weather the badge is real or not.

    there is little makers mark which i am concerned about it says L/13

    Thank you

    (Im a sucker for Infantry Assault Badge )

    I believe this badge is a fake. Meybauer (L/13) didn't make an Infanteriesturmabzeichen to my knowledge. Looking at the balls on the eagle's feet I'm thinking it is a Floch fake.

    Hello Franz

    This one is indeed a fake. This one has a combination of original and fantasy traits.

    1. The obverse looks to be copied from the MK in Triangle. (see my original to compare)

    2. The hinge looks like it was copied from the Wiedmann "lily pad" hinge so called by collectors due to it's shape.

    3. Adrian is correct, Maybauer or L/13 did not make Infanterie Sturmabzeichen's. The only LDO mm Infanterie Sturmabzeichen's are the following;

    L/10 - Deschler
    L/14 - F. Orth
    L/18 - BH Mayer
    L/51 - Wiedmann
    L/53 - Hymmen
    L/56 - Funcke & Bruninghaus
    L/61 - Friedrich Linden FLL

    Best Regards, fischer

    Ahh, OK thank you very much. This is the last one i had doubts about. When I looked at a list today of known manufacuters of this badge, I then new mine was a fake.
