    It's got a post war Souval 'claw' catch.

    A commendable attitude. That's the spirit!

    What Ned said. This type of catch was never used on wartime badges. Two more examples (on post-war-made Souval copies of the Verwundetenabzeichen in Gold and the Infanteriesturmabzeichen in Bronze) are shown below for additional illustration.

    The item shown here is not genuine, but it's not a fantasy piece. The badge was instituted with a decree of 8th July 1944, with award conditions specified on 15th July 1944.

    Under the statutes of the Ordensgesetz of 1957, it was again authorized for wear in a de-nazified version and listed as # 70 in the official manufacturing regulations published on 28th February 1958.

    It is also known that awards of the badge were made on paper. However, whether the actual badge was ever manufactured during WW2 is unknown, and strongly doubted by most.

    Hello,
    I agree that badges may have been made on paper, but as others have stated I would not want one for my collection-I am holding out for the Luftwaffe Panzer badge, and the Luftwaffe Air-Sea Rescue badge.

    As others have stated this badge has Souval all over it.

    You will wait a long time Jody LOL, as for the above award it is as you now know a post war Souval. Leon.
