    Default Panzerkampfabzeichen in Silver, 'Daisy' variation

    Hi there guys.
    Wonder if I could ask your kind assistance with regard to this badge ?
    It is a Panzerkampfabzeichen in silver, 'Daisy' variation. It looks virtually identical to another 'daisy' variation on the forum, there being a slight difference on the shape of the dimple at the far right of the dimple. The reverse of the badge seems identical to the other 'daisy' on the forum. The badge is zinc based & I'm guessing that the finish is possibly brenlac. Could I ask for your opinion & advice for this one guys, not really handled many of these ! Maker, possible date of manafacture ?
    Thankyou for your help.
    Paul

    Looks to be an original badge. The unmarked, unknown maker. Some have ideas on whom this badge is made by, but as of yet unproven. Looks like mid-late war die forged, zinc with silver finish. Wait for Big Ned to weigh in here, as he may have soime other ideas, and is the resident expert in these badges. K

    As Kevin says, an original type II 'Daisy' by an unknown maker, although it is quite possibly linked to Schauerte & Hohfeld only the proof is still lacking. The finish is not Brennlack in my opinion, but the better quality, more robust and uncommon galvanized type that can be found on some of these type II variant badges. It's in great condition too.

    Regards, Ned.

    It's a practically mint example with the glanverzinkt (galvanized) finish I suggested earlier. These pic's are far better and show it in all it's glory, well done on securing this near un-upgradeable piece.
