This is a Zinc made IAB. If you look closely you can see a little of the silver finish left.
This is a unmarked reverse. Slightly vaulted.
You'll notice that the edges are crimped around a standard type hinge.
The catch has been soldered into a slot which gives it the appearance of being crimped in place.
Another Zinc made badge with alittle of the silver finish remaining. This one also is unmarked.
Reverse of IAB. More of the finish on the back then the obverse.
Standard type hinge soldered to the badge.
A standard type "c" catch soldered to the badge.
This Silver IAB is from the collection of Mike Pinkus. Shows nice detail and is a late war badge.
Here's how you can tell. Note the cast hinge, catch and the circles in the corners of the badge. These are made from the ejector pads from the mold.
