Anti Partisan Badge in Bronze – Juncker

Condition: Excellent

SKU: JW1551 Category: Tags ,


Product Description: This Anti Partisan Badge in Bronze is an impressive example of one of the most desirable Heer and SS war badges. It’s made by Juncker, and is a Type 2. Most of the finish has faded, but there is enough thin finish in areas to plainly see that this is a bronze grade badge. The badge has fantastic detail and doesn’t show much actual wear, though it does clearly show age with some buildup of patina in spots. It’s entirely textbook, with all the correct die flaws you would expect to find on a Juncker Type 2. The reverse matches the front, with traces of a thin finish and accumulated patina here and there. The hardware setup of this Anti Partisan Badge is totally intact and functional, with a short barrel hinge, banjo style pin, and flatwire catch. This one is a really great representative example of a very hard to find award.


Historical Description: The Anti-Partisan Badge was instituted by a decree of “The Führer, Adolf Hitler” on January 29, 1944. Hitler stated that was creating the badge to recognize the combat actions of the German troops who were facing an ever-more organized and constantly more dangerous partisan war. The Anti-Partisan Badge was to recognize military accomplishments and personal bravery. The badge featured a sword slaying a Hydra that represented the partisans. There were three grades of this award: Bronze, for 20 combat days; Silver, for 50 combat days; and Gold for 100 combat days against partisans. To qualify as a combat day, a soldier had to be engaged in close combat with the enemy; for soldiers deployed as Infantry, “man against” man combat was specified. The criteria for Luftwaffe members was also based on combat days. Flight crews could earn combat days for carrying out successful missions during which they took fire from partisan enemy. The downing of a partisan aircraft was tallied as 3 combat days. SS-Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler reserved the right to personally award the gold grade of this award. The Anti-Partisan badge was awarded to members of the German Army, Luftwaffe, Ordnungspolizei and Waffen-SS.
