Verwundetenabzeichen Imperial Gold

Article about: A recent gold Verwundetenabzeichen badge for my collection. It looks to be in excellent condition. I did some research and feel it is a good one. It is magnetic so that would make it an earl

    Thanks Greg, I was into collecting these for a while.

    John, the more I look at the last picture you posted the more the black stuff by the bow, right side of the wreath, and the edge of the sword blades looks like old paint to me. To put my mind at ease, if it were mine I'd get a little soapy water on a q-tip and see if any of the black stuff comes off. The edge of the badge on the back looks to have a little patina on it. I'd give that a rub with the q-tip too and see if a little green color comes off. If you get a little green that would suggest brass over the steel base of the badge. I'm sure you'll be able to tell having it in hand, I'm just going off what I see looking at the pictures.

    Here are couple more for comparison.

    Hi Tim, upon reading your post I took another look at my badge with a loop. I did find some kind of black gook in areas of the wreath. I don't believe that it is paint. It could have happened due to how it was stored over the years. I am feeling that it could even be corrosion.

    You have quite a collection there, I now most likely will have to find a black and silver one. Thank you for the great pics and information that you shared.


    Regards;

    Hi John,

    now the badge looks much better . Iron or steel material and blunt needle are good indicators for an early badge, from the first awarding period (1918-1924).

    Hi John,

    Be careful, they can be addicting. Once you get silver and black badges to go with your gold you might find you want a set of cut-out badges next.
