    IMO this is a good unknown maker(s) badge known as the 'Seven Wheeler'. This example is called the 3rd pattern semi hollow zinc "Late" Seven Wheeler Panzerkampf Abzeichen. The design type is 4.3.5. and this badge is the "Late" type as it has a variant reverse set up of a small barrel hinge with a flat wire 'C' shaped catch on a large circular base. The grass design is very complex compared to other Panzerkampf Abzeichen's, but overall, the design of the tank appears heavily influenced by the late version B.H.Mayer design, although there are certain differences.

    Sure. The design is known as the '7 Wheeler' because it's the only Panzerkampf Abzeichen where 7 roadwheels are visible on the left inner track of the panzer. Below i've used an 'Early' hollow tombak type rather than the 'Late' version above to demonstrate this because the wheels are more easily defined, but that's all. Below it is a Wurster Panzerkampf Abzeichen that shows the normal 6 wheels that all other Panzerkampf Abzeichen designs have, as an example of the norm.

    BTW, I should have mentioned previously that the '7 Wheeler' design is now considered to have been produced by Meybauer after examination of the hardware used on their other types of badges, mainly the KM ones.

    Hope this helps.

    So it seems the guy engraving the casting die just loved his wheels so much he didn't know when to stop? "ya, I can squeeze another wheel in there"
