Grouping to Stabsgefreiter Franz Springer, member of the famous Schw. Pz. Abt 502 "Tiger". Springer started his panzer carreer with Panzer Regiment 4. Wounded during the invasion of France on 17.7.1940 by a bullet wound receiving both the panzer assault badge and iron cross 2nd class. Springer jumped in ranks pretty quickly and was transfered in 1943 to the fresh Pz Abt 502, earning the EK1, eastern front campaign medal and notorious second grade of the panzer assault badge!! 

The group contains the first issue Soldbuch, no photo. All entries nicely intact, stunning and doubtless Panzer assault badge 25 assaults entry!!! Award documents for both iron crosses, the Eastern front campaign medal and the Panzer Assault badge grade II for 25 assaults within the schwere Pz Abt 502!!!!!! 

With the paperwork lots of photos of Springer, beautiful portrait photos, some panzer photos and one Tiger photo. 

A stunning light worn Panzer assault badge 25 assaults by JFS (lmaker marked example!!). Copper coated zinc construction with crimped in set up. No repairs, no damage. Panzer assault badge grade I is a early Friedrich Linden example. Very rare variant, unfortunately missing its catch. With Iron cross 1st class, cased and iron cross 2nd class. 

Very nice matching ID disc to the Soldbuch! 

Incredibly rare Tiger tank grouping.
