THREE ORIGINAL WORLD WAR II NAZI BADGES

We only rarely offer medals, badges or edged weapons on the USMBOOKS website because we are acutely aware of the enormous quantity of fakes in those categories in the marketplace. On the other hand, we are always pleased to offer items which we are certain were brought back to this country by an American veteran.

The Abzeichen on this USMBOOKS web page were acquired as part of a lot from the estate of a deceased American veteran of World War II. We took them out of his footlocker ourselves along with a lot of other material that had not been touched for 70 years. The veteran served with the US 75th Infantry Division in eastern Belgium and France, and in the Ruhr and Rheinland in Germany finishing up the war in the Solingen-Lüdenscheid area. We will continue to add other items such as belt buckles, medals and head gear as time allows.

The Panzerkampfabzeichen or Panzer Assault Badge was introduced on 20 December, 1939. It was a military decoration awarded to Panzer personnel that had taken part in three armored assaults on three different days, were wounded in an assault, or showed great bravery in an assault.. It was designed by the firm Wilhelm Ernst Peekhaus of Berlin, and was instituted by order of Generaloberst Walther von Brauchitsch.

Above is a Panzerkampfabzeichen or Panzer Assault Badge we have for sale. It is also absolutely authentic and is maker marked "R.K." for Rudolf Karneth & Söhne of Gablonz (see red arrow).  Condition exactly as shown.
AN ORIGINAL WORLD WAR II NAZI PANZER ASSAULT BADGE IN SILVER BY RUDOLF KARNETH OF GABLONZ
The Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen or Infantry Combat Badge was created in December 1939 and designed by the C. E. Junker company of Berlin. The oval shape has four oak leaves on each side; on the top is an eagle standing on a swastika and there is a 98K rifle crossing the badge. The Infanterie Sturmabzeichen was awarded to Officers, NCOs and enlisted men of rifle companies who were not in motorized infantry divisions, and to mountain troops who met the criteria.

This rare hollow-back silver example is in very nice used condition. The die struck badge has exceptional detail front and back. There are no maker marks. The pin and catch on the back are original and work well, though it appears that the hinge on the pin was re-soldered to the top of the back of the badge at one time.
Infanterie Sturmabzeichen
A GENUINE FALLSCHIRMSCHÜTZENABZEICHEN
OR PARATROOPER BADGE
Luftwaffe paratrooper badge
This is an authentic Luftwaffe Fallschirmschützenabzeichen or Luftwaffe paratrooper badge of the type created in November 1936 and awarded to members of the Luftwaffe who had successfully graduated from parachutist training and had completed six jumps. The left half of the silver plated oval wreath has laurel leaves and the right side has oak leaves. Mounted on the wreath is a gold plated eagle, diving down with a swastika in its talons. The eagle is secured to the wreath by two small rivets which are visible on the back side of the badge near the 11 and 3 o'clock positions.

The badge is unmarked but exhibits manufacturing characteristics typical of C.E. Juncker type F badges including a darkened zinc wreath, a gilded tombac eagle, and a flat brass formed catch.

This 53+ x 43 mm example is in very nice, used condition exactly as shown. The golden finish shows normal wear and the pin, hinge and catch on the back are original and work well. We suspect that the brass catch on the bottom of the back side may have been re-attached at some point. We provide excellent photos for your examination.
This 100% original Third Reich Fallschirmschützenabzeichen is
offered for sale for $695.00 delivered by Standard Mail in the USA.
