    Hi Guys,

    Here's a nice example of a silver Panzerkampf Abzeichen by Juncker I picked up recently. It's considered to be the second variation (1.1.2b) of the original of all Panzerkampf Abzeichen's that were instituted in late December 1939, the main difference being that the sheet metal hinge had a small base either side, added for ease of soldering (see highlight below). This method of fixing was used on Juncker combat badges for the rest of the war. The catch is the usual 'C' shape and is made of tombak.

    Another slight difference from some, but not all of the earliest Juncker badges is the addition of a silver wash. It's a high quality finish, but is so often worn away or completely removed by polishing, so it's nice to find one with over 95% of this remaining.

    Although not an uncommon badge, the early Juncker neusilber examples like this one are extremely desirable to collectors due to the quality of material and the beautiful design, and so currently command a very high premium compared to most other Panzerkampf Abzeichen's.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments, I would like to take the time to thank forum member 'Fischer' for allowing me take it off his hands, it is now one of my favourite pieces. Cheers Don!
