Tank Assault Badge in bronze K. Wurster "cut-out"


Description

Actually combat-worn "Die 2" "organized grass" hollow tombak Bronze grade Wurster made Panzer Assault Badge.  A rare variant that saw its grass area completely trimmed out. While Silver grade PABs can be encountered more often with cut-out grass areas it is very rare to encounter a Bronze grade that underwent this procedure. Bage is in overall nice condition but show's clear traces of wear and patina build-up (cf. P. De Bock the German Panzer Assault Badge of WW II (2009) Chapter 8)
