Very nice award, Ralph!
These awards look great, what kid doesn't like tanks!?
That's a very nice early hollow zinc badge from Deumer. The rear set up is always interesting on these, the large base plated small block hinge being identical to that used by Hymmen & Co. on their entire hollow zinc production PAB's and is taken as more evidence that these two companies collaborated closely together.
Here's a link to my tombak Deumer PAB in bronze, the same dies were used for both badges.

That is a beauty!
I noticed that the catch on yours is a flat wire catch as is mine. I have received another one of these recently that has a different finish and a round wire catch. I will post it in the near future.
