AUSF. A.G.M. u K. Gablonz and FEC. W.E. PEEKHAUS BERLIN. Nicely toned bronze finish on tombac base metal with finish to obverse retaining 97% of orginal “brennlack” and wear to high points only. Back plate is correctly inserted and is the much rarer “blued” version which adds a very striking contrast to the crossed grenade and bayonet. “Banjo” style pin is correct along with hinge and catch. Please see the germancombatawards.com database of originals for an identical example produced by the association of metal workers in Gablonz. A very striking bronze example.
