RESERVED (rs) Outstanding “Theodor Eicke” Signed Award Document, “Totenkopf”
This is an original framed General Assault Badge document and actual award, signed by 3.SS “Totenkopf” division commander, Theodor Eicke. The award is the Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen or ‘general assault badge,’ awarded to troops of units such as combat engineers, which is the case here–the awardee is of the “Totenkopf” pionier battalion. The document shows some age staining, but the lettering, markings and Eicke signature are all bold and recognizable. The award bears most of its silver finish. A fine artifact. COA accompanies.
