Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber '30'

Description

 Silver Wound Badge (Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber). With the outbreak of World War 2, on 1 September 1939, Hitler re-instituted a slightly modified version of the wound badge by altering the WWI pattern helmet on the badge to the newly designed M35 style helmet. The badge was awarded to both military and uniformed non-military personnel and later, (March 1943), to civilian personnel who received wounds as a result of enemy actions. The early tombak (Buntmetall) badge is nicely maker marked with number '30' indicating production by the 'Hauptmünzamt' in Wien (Vienna). Of course are the pin and catch fully functional, this is the harder to find type with the wide-pin. Nice original example in good condition!
