War Luftwaffe Ground Assault Badge

Hi Guys,
In your opinion, who made the nicest Ground Assault badge?

My vote goes to examples made by M.u.K.5, although RK is almost identical.
Regards,
Jody

My vote is for the 3 rivit R.K. - Only because I own a gorgeous one that is in its blue case of issue! The MuK's are fine too - they are a toss up.

Hey, whats wrong with Brehmer? I like em..(actually, its the only maker listed I have)

While on this topic.....which do you guys prefer, the darkened wreath or the silver wreath? Although the wreath on mine is dark, I have to say the silver ones seem more vibrant.

I will share my ground assault collection here. I went with the MuK5 as well, its the nicest one I have (so far!). Still need a Osang and a GWL.

Jody, what has happened to your site, the link from here no longer works.

Thumbs up My vote would go for the R.K. ...

Only because it's the only one I own.

Seriously though the M.u.k.5 and R.K. are almost identical and isn't it ironic that both are the only three rivet badge makers and both from Gablonz?

Hi Jody,
how are you.
My vote goes for the MuK, having had a couple of zincers over the years I finally obtained one.
