WW1 Wound Badge in Silver

Description

This is a nice example of a First World War Wound Badge in Silver (Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber 1918). The Woundbadge was instituted on 3 march 1918. The badge was instituted in three classes with the class bestowed reflecting the number or severity of the wounds received. The classes consisted of a black badge for one or two wounds, a silver badge for three or four wounds and a gold badge for five or more wounds or loss of a limb. The magnetic badge is complete with its functional pin and catch. It retains most of its original silver finish. Nice original wound badge!
