A Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber by 100 - Rudolf Wachtler & Lange of Mittweida. 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 and lacquered. 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 full back reverse has the correct steel round wire pin, stamped hinge and crimped tombak catch assembly. The base of the catch is correctly maker marked with the Präsidialkanzlei number “100” (Rudolf Wachtler & Lange, Mittweida). All of the components remain in well-working condition. Beautiful finish remains. It measures 1 3/4 inches high by 1 1/2 inches wide.
