I agree with Ned; this one is a very nice Type or Die 3 "AS in Triangle" example.
As to the maker...it is thought the maker mark AS in Triangle stands for the "Adolf Scholze" firm with the triangle representing a cooperative between multiple Gablonz makers. Of course, this is not conclusive but with documents linking Adolf Scholze to the production of awards...it is considered a good possibility.

Though not linked to a specific maker, the ball-hinge would suggest a Gablonz connection. Nice badge.
