Default Early Meybauer Panzer in tombak for review.

Hi guys,

managed to add this beautiful panzer badge to my collection, an early Meybauer or seven wheeler in tombak with the cut out in the swastika. Badge has the early set-up with barrel hinge. This version is extremely rare to find on the open market, on my wantlist for a very long time. It was a lucky find, this badge came from German private and was advertised with very crappy pictures and with the swas censored. I'm sure people mistook it for an early Schickle. I had to look closely myself but when receiving detailed pictures my suspicion was confirmed. This badge was accompanied by a small pin. I guess it's a unit pin to wear on the cap. Can anyone help me with a unit name? Searched a bit but no conclusion. PAB is in a light worn condition with a nice amount of finish left. I tried to remove the verdigris with hot water and a cotton swab but not much succes.
Despite that the PAB is in a very beautiful condition.

Hope you can appreciate it too!

NS

The unit pin, grateful for any help.
It does look period but i'm not sure if it's panzer related.
According to the seller these always belonged together and were stored in an old wooden box.

The early Maybauers with the cut out swastika are a must have for any PAB collector.
A superb example.
