    Default My Verwundabzeichen in Gold '30' mit etui.

    Hi Guys,

    After reading a couple of interesting threads on cased wound badges recently my interest was piqued and I decided, if possible, to purchase a nice one at a reasonable price.

    I was lucky to drop on one pretty quickly that met my criteria and IMO ticked all the boxes. It's a Gold badge by the Vienna Mint (MM'30') early war type in Tombak. The pin is a nice varient known as the "Bar Type", being slightly narrower than the "Wide Pin". The case is good, it has a some wear to the base, but nothing too detrimental and the hinge and button are sound.

    All thoughts or opinions are welcome.

    Regards, Ned.

    That's a bit blingy Ned! I don't think I've seen a shinier one. Can you take a few more shots, some at an angle and some without the bright reflection?

    Not really, just a niggle the finish might be newer than the badge. It just seems a little too bright?

    If Ned can post the images as mentioned above it will put my very small doubts to rest. Sometimes a photo can make a badge look better (or worse) than it actually is and it would be good to be absolutely sure.

    I know the badges are supposed to have a certain stand out shine to them but they always look more matt finish shine as opposed to high gloss shine.

    Unfortunately, I have to agree with Adrian on this one. It's an excellent badge, but the Finish is absolutely glitzy in the extreme. I, too, have never seen one with this particular hue and shine-even totally unissued or worn. Did some one use Flitz or some metal polish paste on the highlights? Whatever caused this, the effect is spectacular, but...is it period? I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is just a trick of the photo light!

    Hi Chaps,

    These are the vendors photo's, and yes, it does look very 'Jimmy Saville' as the shots were taken using a flash. It's not as shiny in hand so I'll endeavour to get some of my own snaps up asap. I would have taken some myself, but the camera's still in amongst a load of stuff yet to be unpacked since we moved house, so please bear with me!

    Regards, Ned.

    P.S. If you think this is blingy, you should see my Zimmermann Infanterie Sturmabzeichen!!

    Don't think you will ever upgrade that one buddy.

    Beautiful '30' badge, Ned.

    I was thinking the case may be for an EKI, as all the wound
    badge cases I've seen have been slightly larger with blue
    or wine red flocking inside.........?
