    In those days, things were bought without any interest in the person who obtained them. The shop was at Halsted and 76th St., a racially changing neighborhood so many vets did not want to haul their souvenirs when they moved and sold them instead. The shop was owned by Bob Gramberg, who put out a very early collector book identifying items that came through his store. The Grand Cross and 20 July wound badge were both featured in the book. When he closed, another Chicago shop bought up the remnants. It was owned by the late Phil Weber and it was located at 87th and Ashland. Back in the early days when there was so much material and few buyers.
    Thank you Bob.

    How many genuine July 1944 Wound Badges should there be in existence?

    There have been a few threads here about them. There is a thread here with a link to another which says 23 were awarded but as to the actual amount manufactured is anyone's guess.

    I can't remember what I was reading now or how true it is, but I read somewhere that in the final days the Germans defending the Chancellery were using crates of unopened medals to block the windows and entry points from the attacking Russkies. Has anyone else heard that?

    I'm sure I've seen broken open boxes of awards littering the Chancellery steps but not sure they were used to block up entrances although it could be possible.
