A Verwundetenabzeichen in silber by Carl Wild of Hamburg. 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 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 above two crossed broad swords. This then 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 reverse is maker marked “107” within an oval border, and has a soldered on steel oval plate round wire catch, soldered on steel sheet metal hinge and steel round wire pin. All of the components remain in well-working condition. The silvered finish looks great! The badge measures approximately 1 3/4 inches high by 1 1/2 inches wide. Quite nice!
