A great looking stickpin to add alongside the badge! The black wound badge was awarded to those who were wounded 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 black painted. 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 soldered on and knurled stickpin. The face measures approximately 10mm tall. Nice detailh!
