    Default 1957er Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber

    Steve's 1957 Wound Badge thread has inspired me to purchase one myself. I went for this silver-grade badge, which has just arrived.

    So, let's see if I have learned something: Unless I am mistaken, this is a later-production piece by Steinhauer & Lück.

    As always, comments are welcome.

    Hi Andreas.....you are correct, post 1968 wound badge, with open hinge block, second pattern short taper pin and dished rear by St u L.....a late version in the time scale, but still a nice 57er IMO !
    Scorned a few years back, wrongly IMO, these later badges are now collectable and stand in line with their older brothers.......most collectors stating that they were for collectors only and not for veterans......so when the wall came down what did the East German veterans buy ?............exactly !
    Now you need the black and gold ones !
    Prost ! Steve.
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."

    I think I'll add those sooner or later... But for now I have gone for another silver grade badge.

    With the flat back, long, round pin, short catch and solid hingeblock, this should be a very early S & L piece.

    Side by side with the other badge posted above. (While tarnished and worn, it appears a little bit darker here than it actually is):

    A nice early S&L Andreas. The patina is great on that one.
