A silver Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen by Adolf Scholze. The Silver Infantry Assault Badge was awarded to Infantry troops who had taken part in combat action on different days and met the required award criteria. It is constructed out of a die struck, zinc-alloy base that has been silver washed and black burnished. The oval shaped obverse depicts a rifle and bayonet below a Heer closed winged eagle clutching a mobile swastika within its talons. This is all surrounded by an acorn and oak leaf wreath that is tied together at the bottom. The semi-hollow reverse is maker marked reading "A.S." (Adolf Scholze, Grünwald a. N.). It also displays a crimped ball hinge, crimped flat catch and sturdy round wire pin. They all remain in well working condition and are non-magnetic. The details and silver wash continue to display well. It measures approximately 2 7/16 inches tall by 1 7/8 inches wide. See page 70 of Sascha Weber's "The Infantry Assault Badges". It will continue to make for an excellent display.
