Hersteller of this Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz?
Recently I received this unmarked Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz. It is the first Schwarz one to my collection and I have been trying to indentify the 'hersteller'. I compared it with other VWA in schwarz here on the forum and to me it looks to be one from S&L. My opinion is mainly based on the setup of the catch and hinge. And yes, I haven't cleaned the reverse yet.
I would like to here your opinions on this and I am looking forward for your feedback.
Thank you very much.
Regards, D. Schop

I agree, it appears to be an unmarked S&L made from brass.
