    I remember reading that late war or field conversions were done, but without a known history you could never tell when it was done and if it was a period original.

    If the badge were steel maybe, but tombak was no longer used after 1943 due to material shortages, and the LDO/PKZ forbid the manufacture of hollow zinc badges IIRC.

    I will check to see if mine is magnetic when I get home later. It is marked L/11.

    Here some info I got directly from the a vet.
    Gold hallow back were given in the eastern front but they were black before the paint was removed.
    This was done because of supply chain problem ,this was not priority item.
    I have keep his gold hallow wound in memory of him.

    Personally, I would pass on this one out of caution...as you would face the same scrutiny if/when you decide to sell it later, and might have a difficult time recouping your investment...I agree with Jerry that there were late-war hollow gold badges...I've read that Deschler may have produced them as well, but in this case it's a risk I wouldn't feel comfortable making...I suggest waiting on a solid Gold "30"-marked badge...they're out there...

    I may be swung if anyone can show a proven genuine hollow gold verwundetenabzeichen of any type of material that is in as exceptional,almost mint condition as this one is. And i'm betting you'll have to pay a pretty penny for the opportunity to find out whether this one's the real deal......Just don't moan if it turns out to be a piece of crap.

    As I posted Ned, you really would need a solid history to be sold one of these. The thread starter does look to be a stripped brass example, not one I would buy as an original period conversion, unless my previous comment applied.

    Even before this whole discussion has been posted, I would not buy the original one as a gold. I am sure that it is a stripped and repainted black one.
