The Condor Legion Wound Badge was instituted on May 22nd 1939 and was awarded “As an honoring symbol of remembrance for those German volunteers who were wounded or damaged by enemy weapons while putting down Bolshevism in the Spanish war of liberation as members of the Legion Condor or in connection with their service and combat action with the German Navy in Spanish waters.”. The black wound badge was awarded to those who were wounded once or twice by hostile action (including air raids), or frostbitten in the line of duty. It is constructed out of a die stamped tombak base that has been black painted and lacquered. 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 hollow back reverse shows the appropriate pin, hinge and catch assembly all of which are in well-working condition. The badge measures approximately 1 11/16 inches high by 1 1/2 inches wide. Nice.
