1st Pattern Wound Badge in Silver

Description

 This is a nice example of the 1st Pattern 'Legion Condor' Wound Badge in Silver (Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber). On 22 May 1939 Adolf Hitler re-instituted a slightly modified version of the ww1 wound badge with the addition of a swastika, this 1st pattern was awarded to German volunteers who had been wounded supporting the Spanish Nationalist 'Generalissimo Francisco Franco' against the communist allied Republican Loyalist party in the Spanish Civil War. This is a non-magnetic brass example having a functional pin and catch. The badge is not visible maker marked. It is showing a nice silver finish. Nice original early pattern wound badge in very good condition!
