    Steven,
    It's a Verwundetenabzeichen (Wound Badge) in black. One of the most common badges to find.

    In that condition I would guesstimate about $25-$30 - not hugely valuable.

    Regarding the LDO marked EK2s - basically the award manufacturers were given a Präsidialkanzlei (PKZ) number, for example Deschler was number 1, Juncker was number 2, right through to A.D. Schwert who was number 142. Some makers were authorized to make EKs, some weren't. In addition, certain manufacturers were granted an LDO license to make awards for private purchase and were given an LDO number.
    This had no relation to their PKZ number. These companies were allowed to make awards for private purchase and had to mark them with their 'L' number.
    So, Deumer made EKs marked '3' and also 'L/11'. The awards marked '3' were used as award pieces and issued in the field, at award ceremonies etc. The pieces marked 'L/11' were sold directly from Deumer or from approved outlets for awardees who wished to buy another example of their award. An EK recipient might want to keep his award medal at home, at barracks, send it to his wife or parents etc. He might then also wish to have an example court mounted for use on this best uniform, so he would go the maker or an outlet that sold EKs, provide proof he was entitled to the award and purchase an LDO marked cross.
    LDO numbered awards are significantly rarer than their PKZ marked counterparts due to the quantities of each made (or marked) in relation to one another. LDO awards will often be found in good quality cases made specifically for the piece whereas PKZ examples came in the blue paper envelope.
