Great badge, and very nice finish as you say
Nice score How!
Although a mid war badge, the design is taken from the early Juncker type 1 Panzerkampf Abzeichen. Bronze grade ones are fairly difficult to find, especially with as much of the bronze finish left as yours has, most fade to a dull greyish-black shade. An excellent example mate, well done!
