Product Description: This Bronze Anti-Partisan Badge is a beautiful example of a very desirable variant. It is made of zinc. This pattern is known to have been made by the firm of C. E. Juncker. The obverse retains all of the eye-catching original bronze finish, with attractive golden tones. There is minimal wear to the high points in the design, and an even, slight age patina. All of the original fine detail remains intact. The reverse of this badge is unmarked, as is typical for these, and retains good finish, with an uncleaned patina. The hardware is all correct late war Juncker style. The attachment pin is banjo style, and magnetic, and still functional. The block hinge and catch are held in place with the original solder and there is no sign of repair. This rare Bronze Anti-Partisan Badge is a fine, complete and all-original piece that would be tough to upgrade. It’s in outstanding, near mint condition.




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.
