Default Early transitional Assmann badges for Charles

I received a PM from a fellow member asking if I had any early transitional badges from Assmann…
Well, Charles...here are a couple.
PB with 1st pat eagle, 3rd pat wreath
Obs with 1st pat eagle, 3rd pat wreath


I'm sure that other members will be able to contribute this Assmann transitional thread... let's see what comes up.

My second pattern bird on the second pattern wreath.
The transitional eagle is very rare.

Interesting to see is that the third pattern wreath of the badges posted by jt show great detail when you compare them with badges that already have the third pattern eagle. Some of these later issued buntmetall wreaths have poor detail when you compare them with earlier versions. Seems the die lost detail fast. It also doesn’t make sense that you see the first pattern birds on the third pattern wreath. If you would follow the sequence you would expect the second pattern eagle to be on them, the bird on the badge i posted. Hence i believe the die of the a2 bird got damaged somehow and they had to grab back to the old design of eagle.

How would you call them than, keeping in mind that the third pattern eagle already appeared on a thicker wreath as from early 1939, perhaps a bit earlier.

Really!!! Think about the aluminum eagle tombak wreath assmann.... 1938 1939 and its a third pattern wreath. Assmann switched very early to their last wreath design compare to Juncker for example.
