    Default My Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber.

    Hi Guys,

    Here's a recent acquisition from one of the mod's on GCA. It's a zinc Zimmermann Infanterie Sturmabzeichen with 99% of it's original silver gilt intact. The photo's don't do it justice really.

    All questions or comments welcome.

    Regards, Ned.

    Hello Ned

    A very nice Zimmermann, congrats on finding this one!

    It is quite a challenge for those seeking to acquire all of the FZS variants. The solid Zimmermann's can be found with several different hardware set ups. The first hardware set up would fit into the raised guides on the reverse; a long barrel hinge and a elongated oval catch plate.
    Yours still has the raised guides but is using a sheet metal hinge and a shorter, oval shaped catch plate.
    Further along in the progression of the solid FZS examples a crimped in attachment method for the hinge and catch. It was used eliminating the need to solder the hardware set up in place. The raised guides can still be seen on these first crimped in variants.
    Finally, the crimped in examples are seen without the raised guide lines on the reverse. Obverse details remained the same throughout.

    Top example...

    Best Regards, fischer

    Hi fischer,

    Thanks for the concise info, I knew there were different variants, but you've put them into perspective! I think I'll just stick with this one for the mo', I'm looking for a quality PAB in bronze at this time, oh and a minty EKII with it's packet would be good too.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone! As you all know, it can take a loooong time for the right item to appear, then, the question of can you afford it, and finally, is it still available.... When it all comes together it's great, and that's why I love this hobby so much!

    Regards, Ned.
