    Hi Pammy, I'm fairly certain this is a black wound badge with the paint rubbed off. If you look under the hinge and the catch, you can see remnants of black paint.

    I believe it is a myth that gold wound badges were issued with a hollow back. Most likely started by someone trying to sell black badges at the price of gold.

    Some however still believe these were issued in the field if gold badges were unavailable or later in the war when materials were scarce.

    At $100, that's very high for a mucked about black wound badge. In this condition, unless it's cheap ($15), I would pass. You can get mint examples that are maker marked for under $100.

    I agree with Eric, save your money and buy a mint black badge for a fraction of the price. Remember, gold and silver wound badges were never hollow backed like the black version. Someone correct me if I'm wrong?
