Near mint early Silver Infantry Assault Badge by Schickle.
Absolutely stunning frosted and burnished early silver plated tombak IAB by Otto Schickle!
Very crisp strike with beautiful detail. Early hollowback design. Almost all of the silver plating is remaining with just a touch of wear to the odd highlight but I'm being really picky.
Often called the Mayer/Schickle IAB by collectors.
Patina to reverse of badge.
Good hinge, pin and clasp.
This early Infantry Assault Badge would be extremely difficult to upgrade.
