    Default 57er Panzerkampfabzeichen....

    Do not forget the 1957 (de-nazified as the swastika was outlawed by the BRD) officially sanctioned version of the " Panzerkampfabzeichen", the earliest form, 57 to 60 (approx) used left over pin/hinge assemblies, made by both ST u L and by the firm Deumer up to the mid 1960's .....St u L continued on alone to make them up to the mid 1980's, although by then most veterans had stopped buying them and these later pieces suffered in terms of quality, as it appears St u L catered for the collector community from the late 1970's on.....I show an early 1960's St u L produced badge with the "o" mark on reverse, with first tapered pin and closed hinge block, the quality was good at this stage, note the crisp details and polished highlights .....All versions of this badge, including the numbered awards were produced in the 57er range.
    Prost ! Steve.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
