    Hello Vis,

    The shield is a genuine Karl Wurster 3.4 type 'A' with no issues I can see. Looking at the backing material it's mid to late war. It may well be maker marked with the KWM logo on the reverse side behind the 1941 date, but I wouldn't advise messing with it to find out!

    Regards, Ned.

    Hey Ned. Were these all some sort of stamped metal, or did some come in zinc? Can't quite tell what this one is made of...

    Hi Scott,

    All Wurster shields were magnetic sheet steel that was bronzed. The prongs varied from flat or round wire buntmetall of varying lengths throughout the badges production. The back plate started out as buntmetall sheet as well, but later changed to plain sheet steel as shortages of brass increased.

    Regards, Ned.

    That explains some of the steel looking highlight rubs on this one. Thanks for the info!
