    Hello Hawkins,
    Back then they ran around $6 and if you wanted the little cardboard box to go with it was an extra $3. By 1978 those badges ran around $15-20. They were very common back in the day.

    This looks like it's from one of the Aurich Hoard finds from around 1971, 1975 or maybe the last in 2010 when a case of 48 packeted PAB's turned up at an auction with an asking price of 15,000 Euro's, although I think all of those were a bright Glanzverzinkt (zinc plated) whereas this one appears to be Brennlack (powdered metal heated). I think that most were bought by dealers who often parted out the badges from the cardboard issue cases to sell separately as well as together, these were going for 500 Euro's a pop in 2010 which is plainly ridiculous,you could get a fine Juncker N/S or solid tombak Wurster for that, but they did sell....

    A nice badge in great shape, you now need to find a much rarer bronze one!

    It is indeed a good book about the PKA award & all concerned. I'm lucky enough to be the owner of #14 of the limited edition of the book(s). Phil DB's PKA book is very hard to find in any way, shape or form at present. Stewy

    I explained the difference in finishes in my first post. To reiterate, they started as a high quality plated Glanzervint (zinc plate/galvanised) finish, but as war progressed moved onto a Brennlack finish (powdered metal that was heated) like yours and then eventually they resorted to metal washes that wore off very quickly as can be seen on many late war zinc awards.

    If you are wanting to collect these seriously, the books above by Philippe De Bock are an absolute necessity and are available on occasion on Ebay for between 130-190 depending; or currently there's a copy of the set on Alibris in the U.K. (I use them regularly and they're good) for 230. Expensive? Yes, but the first time it saves you buying a dud everything after that is gravy. This is the best book set there is and mine is well thumbed as I use it all the time and it's saved me a fortune as well as guiding me to rare badges at bargain prices, it's a fantastic investment.

    Also, if you sign up and buy anything from them they regularly offer members up to 20 discount off a book purchase of your choice, you can find them here:

    I hope this helps.
