Late 57er Black wound badge.......
This late production, open hinged after 1968, but more probably 1978 ! black wound badge, solid back and matt finish...nothing special, not worth a great deal (as yet!) and probably not that collectable....but still a St u L made 1957 award albeit for the collector market...it is to complment my 57er Wound badge collection, I intend to have all three grades in all three manufacturing periods, early, mid & late...for comparison reasons...I have all three early and just need a Gold mid (closed hinge/tapered pin)& a Silver late (open hinge) to complete all three periods...I will show when obtained.....
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."
