GERMANY – WOUND BADGE – ARMY – SILVER – CUT OUT PRIVATE PURCHASE
Extremely handsome private purchase, custom, silver army wound badge.
The silver wound badge was the 2nd Class version of the army wound badge which was first authorized in March 1918. The badge has a fine patina as the badge has not been cleaned for some time.
On the reverse we see that the badge is stamped. It has an excellent tapered pin which is a bit unusual for a badge of this type. Generally the pin is straight.
The badge is in very fine condition and is an unusual variation.
