World War Two German medals, badges and awards photos.
Unmarked Silver IAB with flat back. A rather unique pin and hinge set up, something one would encounter normally on Luftwaffe badges, should make attribution simple for those medal collectors who recognize this particular IAB.
Silver IBA with solid back, slight vaulting and no maker / manufacturer marks. Identification / Attribution would be welcome, please feel free to comment with the manufacturers name.
An unmarked Infanterie Sturm Abzeichen with solid back. No clues as to manufacturer.
German second world war Infantry Assault badge with no marker marks. A little “salty” through heavy wear but all parts are in good working condition still. Stamped metal construction method. Hinge and catch set up could allow someone to attribute the IAB badge to a known maker?
Bronze IAB in Zinc from SHUCo 41. Note that this is a bronze version but to get the necessary detail in the photos the Obverse looks “washed out” this is a Camera / Image issue only.
Please be sure to study badges from this manufacturer in detail as they are (a) relatively easy to encounter and (b) IAB’s from this manufacturer were heavily copied.
World war two War merit medal from Germany (Kriegsverdienst medal). The lowest grade in the War merit series and awarded liberally to those who “stayed at home”.
Obverse is the nazi cross in the center surrounded by a wreath which is superimposed upon an eight pointed Maltese cross.
On the Reverse in gothic script can be found “Fur Kriegs-verdienst 1939” which translated is “For war service 1939”
A bronze GWL marked IAB. Photos are a little washed out so the Bronze colouring doesnt really show well but the important details of the badge manufacture can be seen.
German badge for somwthing Aviation related? Is that a Ju52 – tantie Ju in the middle? J.Pressler Pforzheim is the manufacturer.
Silver IAB manufactured by MK1 and marked M.K.1.
Unfortunately the reverse shows the age of the badge.
Combined pilot observer badge in aluminium produced by the manufacturer Assman during WW2.
