    Hi folks,

    I finally picked one of these up! They are very common but underrated awards. The design is lovely and behind every one of these there is a soldier's story to be told.

    I bought this one because it has that nice stylized Assmann 'A' we all love to see.

    Enjoy!

    Interesting they marked these twice with their initials and also their logo whereas on most other awards they just used the logo.

    I just realized how terrible these photos are. I am going to get new ones with my iPhone. It does a better job than my camera...

    This award was the first 'medal' I collected while in High School
    during in the mid 70's - It cost me all of $12 back then.
    A month or two ago, I picked up a couple more for
    about the same price.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    This, as well as the verwundetenabzeichen in black, have both been very hard awards for me to buy. I have never found an example of either that really stood out. I love the Assmann logo, which is why I bought this one.

    I am still holding out for a Klein u. Quenzer '65' wound badge in black to match my silver and gold.

    I agree. These are solid, underated awards. I have an example like yours with the crossed swords and one without crossed swords. Thanks for posting

    The one with the swords is the Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer, the one without swords the Ehrenkreuz für Kriegsteilnehmer. There was also an Ehrenkreuz für Hinterbliebene.

    They are indeed underrated, but highly collectable; see my ongoing thread:
