    Default InfanterieSturmabzeichen Petz & Lorenz

    Hello again,
    this is the latest addition to my collection.
    This little chap arrived today. Again this badge came straight from the family in a small bundle of Vet acquired items (which had a lot of 1st WW German medals in it)
    I have done some research in to the badge and believe it to be genuine Petz & Lorenz

    A nice example Doug!
    I was not familiar with this one until doing some research. It appears there is a variation or two of these, earlier ones with cut out swastikas and some with different hardware.
    Congrats on adding this one!

    Hello Doug

    It's a very nice and difficult to find ISA attributed to the firm of Petz & Lorenz albeit, this is still conjecture IMO.

    Examples of this design can also be found with the LDO number L/18 stamped in the badge pin for retail sale. This LDO number was assigned to BHMayer.
    Also, some collectors are of the opinion these examples are a member of the Frank & Reif family.
    This is due to the very similiar obverse design when compared to the F&R maker marked solids.

    This tombak hollow example can be found with a lily pad hinge hardware set up, round catch plate and the sheet metal hinge, oblong catch plate combination we see here.
    And, there are a few known examples that have a cut-out swastika detail.

    Congrats on securing this one, a highly desirable ISA...

    Best regards, fischer

    Thank you Harry and Kevin for your comments...they are very appreciated.
    Ralph, Fischer, thank you for the additional information it is very useful and nice to know that it is a more hard to find example.
    I do particularly like the wear on this one. (I must admit Ralph I do like the mint badges that you show and have in your collection)
    I must admit I would have liked to have bought the whole collection of Cased and packeted Kriegsmarine items that Adrian showed a couple of weeks ago. I do prefer to keep collections together.

    Thanks once again.
    All the best

    Hi Sven

    This assemblage of attributed P&L ISA's is second to none.

    Your collection of this example is the nicest I have ever seen; thanks for showing them....

    Best Regards, fischer
