Wound Badge in Silver 'L/56'

Description

Wound Badge in Silver (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 'L/56' indicating production by the company 'Funke & Brünninghaus' from Lüdenscheid. Of course are the pin and catch fully functional. Rare and hard to find badge in very good condition!
