    Default hollow backed Verwundetenabzeichen im gold

    Hi everyone, I haven't seen a hollow backed Verwundetenabzeichen im gold before and wondered if it was the real deal or not please?
    It certainly has a duller gold finish than some of the solid backed ones you normally see. It isn't maker marked.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I can't seem to find a reasonably priced gold one to complete my small wound badge collection anywhere!!!

    Hi Jay,
    To be honest I haven't seen a hollow gold badge either, I'm not sure they were made in this way.
    I would suggest the badge you show is a black version with the paint cleaned off.
    Hopefully a Verwundetenabzeichen collector can confirm or deny my opinion.........

    I think Adrian is correct.

    The hollow, tombac/brass versions are simply black grade badges without finish,
    or the paint has been removed.

    It has been speculated that some of these 'brass' type badges - without
    any finish - could possibly have been used in place of gold badges in
    the field, later in the war. One WRF member states that a WWII
    German Veteran told him this very thing, some years ago.

    I also have one that does not appear to have ever been painted/plated.
    This lack of paint does not make them worth more, in fact, they can
    usually be bought for slightly less $$ than typical black badges.


    Be prepared to spend quite a lot for an original, solid-back,
    gold grade badge. They are not cheap.........!

    I also think that it is a cleaned black.

    Yes it is sure a black one. I have seen many not so good dealers that trys to sell black woundedbadges as gold ones. Its good that they never made gold ones with hollow backs (correct me if Im wrong).
