    Default 1936 Pattern Verwundetenabzeichen (Condor Legion) in Schwarz

    Hello All,
    this war weary chap came along with a small collection of LW related Afrika Korps stuff.
    It was caked with a heavy deposit of whitish coloured mud....
    It came from a vet pick up so it was a nice find possibly lost somewhere in Africa or Tunisia.

    A gentle rub with a toothbrush revealed some surprising details.
    What I thought was that it was a black grade badge that had been painted over a brass base. It certainly looked like a brass badge but it is in fact magnetic.

    Weight is very light coming in at 7.23 grams

    I know this is considered as a 'first type' or 'Legion Condor' badge but I prefer to refer to this type as the 1936 pattern


    Comment or opinions welcomed


    All the best
    Doug

    Thanks for the input Adrian
    I like these wound badges as well but this is only the second one (I think) that I have had out of British vet collections.

    Thanks Harry
