Attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres) so-called: 'Truppen-Traditionsabzeichen des 215. Infanterie Division' as executed in greyish-coloured zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink')
This is an attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - so-called: 'Traditions-Abzeichen' (or 'Plakette' as officially known per regulation) as executed in zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') and that comes naturally complete with its original pin- ie. catch attachment. The badge - only sized: 3,5 x 2,5 cms. - is truly very detailed and depicts a sword with a bunker in the background and shows the text: 'Westwall - 215. Div. - 1939'. The badge on offer here has never been cleaned nor polished and shows truly great and/or pronounced detail: it still retains (all) of its lacquered finish and was - I deem - hardly worn nor used. A similar example of this badge is also pictured in the Heering-Hüsken 'Abzeichenkatalog', wherein it is given the unique reference-number '9817A' and wherein it is given an estimated value of 225 Eu. As possiblly known were these (actually semi-official!) badges also properly entered in both 'Wehrpass' and/or 'Soldbuch': they also were handed-out with an official award-document. Some time ago I have sold such a complete grouping (with all accompanying papers) which can be still looked-up in my 'archive-section' if deemed of interest. Simply a very nice 'Infanterie-related: 'Truppentraditionsabzeichen' that will be impossible to be upgraded!
