GERMANY – ARMY WOUND BADGE – BLACK
The Army Wound Badge was first authorized in March 1918. A Navy version would appear in June 1918. The Army Wound Badge came in three classes, black, silver and gold. The black badge was the 3rd Class. It was awarded for one and two wounds. It came with an urkunde (Award document).
Our offering is a custom version that was privately purchased. The issue badge was solid but this badge is cut out. Like the issue badge it is stamped. The black paint on this is excellent. We don’t often see privately purchased badges like this.
