Attractive, 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or: General Assault Badge ie. GAB) being a typical maker- (ie. 'ÜÜ'-) marked, zinc-based- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) pattern as was produced by the: 'E.Ferd. Wiedmann'-company
This particular example - being as stated above an attractive clearly maker- ie. 'ÜÜ'-marked, silverish-grey-toned- and/or typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) piece - has maintained a nice (only minimally darkened and/or typical zinc-like) age-patina and comes naturally mounted onto its functional (thin-shaped- and/or copper-toned-) pin (which is mounted onto a typical ie. also copper-based 'plate'-mounting as is more often seen with pieces by this particular maker). The piece is truly very detailed and pronounced: it has, however, been minimally used and/or worn and does show some obvious age, wear and/or staining but was never cleaned nor polished (it still retains a somewhat 'tarnished' finish as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows great pronounced detail as to be expected. The piece shows great pronounced detail as to be expected. I deem that this is a typical piece that was produced by - and can be attributed to - the: 'E.Ferd. Wiedmann'-company as based in the town of Frankfurt a.M. (ie. 'Hersteller 16'). Simply an attractive - and moderately used! - example by a not that often found maker and that is accordingly priced!
