A private purchased LDO marked Verwundetenabzeichen in silber by L/12. The silver wound badge was awarded to those who were wounded three or four times by hostile action (including air raids), or frostbitten in the line of duty. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc-alloy base that has been silver washed. The oval shaped obverse depicts an embossed profile of a mobile swastika, above an M35 pattern helmet, which is again above two crossed broad swords. This all lies on a pebbled field and is surrounded by a laurel leaf and berry wreath which is tied together at the bottom with a bow tie. The full back reverse has a integral cast-in catch and hinge with a tonbac pin. All of the components are in well-working condition. It is also maker marked “L/12” (Juncker). The silver plating is in decent shape and I have no tried to improve that at all by cleaning. The badge measures approximately 1 3/4 inches high by 1 1/2 inches wide. Overall it is a nice LDO piece!
