A Rare Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber by B. H. Mayer of Pforzheim! 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 then 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 is maker marked: “26” and has the appropriate stamped catch and hinge and steel round wire pin assembly. All of the components are in well-working condition. The silver wash remains 40% intact. The badge measures approximately 1 3/4 inches high by 1 1/2 inches wide. A rare maker mark to find on wound badges!
