    Default Infanterie Sturmabzeichen - Unknown Maker (To me at least)

    Gentlemen,
    I've been offered this Infanterie Sturmabzeichen, I'm fairly certain its genuine, the maker's symbol I take to be M K initials in a triangle, do members know the name of this maker and if the maker is a rare one or not. Any information appreicated.
    Regards

    Indeed an original MK in triangle,congrats. It may be a bronze too,which makes it more desirable for this maker. A bit difficult to be 100% sure on that from the pics though. Stewy

    Any connection to the maker 'AS' Stewy? The makers mark, ball hinge and catch look very similar to this maker?

    Thanks Stewy, I would guess this particular maker is one of the rarer to find? I don't remember seeing too many of these before.

    Gentlemen,
    Thanks for the the posts, I did take the badge. Looking at it I'm unsure whether its a bronze one or a silver one tarnished by time or smoke, I've included a extra picture, to help members, what do they think Bronze or Silver ? Looking through Detlev Nieman's 2010 catalogue it states made from Buntmetal / Whitemetal and Zinc. I wonder, how can I tell which is which? assuming some of the bronze or silver wash is missing from the badge, exposing base metal is there a tell-tale sign i.e. one material has distinct colour, texture or prone to metal pest, how do members differeniate, any advice welcome.
    Regards

    I would suggest a zinc badge with most of the silver finish missing but what is left has toned to a darker colour.

    As Adrian says,a zinker for sure. From the pics i'm still undecided as to whether it's silver or bronze. Whichever it is,it's lost most of it. Stewy
