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 someone repainted gold in order to deceive. 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 has the appropriate nickel-silver pin stamped "4". All of the components are in well-working condition. The badge measures approximately 1 3/4 inches high by 1 1/2 inches wide. A bargain. Ok just so i'm clear here. The badge is original and someone repainted it.
