WWII Italian Tanker Badge in Silver – German Made


Categories: ,


In a sea of reproductions, this is as textbook as they come. This is a very hard to find example of a World War 2 Italian badge for tank drivers, and other tank crewmen. Consisting of a silver made into an oval laid horizontally with a pin back. In the center is the starboard side of a tank, rising above that is a winged dragon breathing fire. The center is fretted and enclosed by a wide border which is inscribed with the Italian Tank Force motto at the top, reading “FERREA MOLE, FERREO CUORE” (Iron Walls, Iron Hearts), incised and filled with black paint. The amazing part about this example is not only is it an original Italian Tanker Badge, but it’s actually German made! Truly a remarkable piece which would be a fantastic addition to any serious WWII collectors display. There is no damage or repairs, and this badge has never been cleaned, overall a flawless example.
