Greetings,

I have recently acquired this piece and I am eager to share. 

The pin is removed and there are holes to help the soldier affix this to his tunic. 

 

I hope you like it.  The skull is one of the fiercest.  Probably this and the the Skull on the Antipartisan badge (TR era) are probably the coolest (appearance wise)  IMO.

 

Hope you like.

Hi Justin.

 

i  have always liked these badges but have never been  confident  with  buying one  because of  the  numerous  fakes in  the  market. Your  looks  a  nice  badge.

 

Thanks  for  showing it :thumbup:

These are copied quite a bit. I had done some research and actually, I was fortunate that a well respected member was selling his.  So when the time came up, I was in perfect position to acquire.  I will post some close ups when the badge arrives in my hands of the maker stamp on the reverse.

 

Thanks for looking. 

Regards,
JustinG

Hi Justin!

 

Your thread is posted in the wrong forum, it should be posted in the Austro-Hungarian one.

 

Here is my badge to compare, maker-mark is "Gurschner, Wien".

 

Kind regards, Peter

It is interesting on the reverse of your badge, that on the right it has the SturmTrupp embossed on it and to the left is the maker? Very interesting.

Thanks for showing your example.

Hi again, Justin!

 

My badge is a "standard"-pattern general "Sturmtrupp"-badge of Gurschner, Vienna. These are ca. 54,5 x 35,7 mm. Your (original) badge is the smaller one I think? If so, it should have ca. 36 x 32,6 mm.

 

Kind regards, Peter

I don't know the exact reasons.  He has been listing many of his items.  I can't say for sure, but perhaps, he is slowly liquidating his collection.   Something we or our loved ones will eventually do.

Best Regards,

JustinG
