    Welcome to the forum dear Aussie! I did not even know this award existed so now I have learned something again. Thank you for that

    When I searched for "verwundetenabzeichen 20 juli 1944" I found some items which I think is good on big auction houses, but dont trust the big dealers just because they are big and famous! They all can make mistakes. But you can always compare their items to yours


    And if the award was made in the 1960's it would not have a swastika on it. (If it's not a fake)

    The soldiers in Germany could turn in their awards (some of them?) from the war and have "legit" ones to wear without the swastika since the symbol was banned. I dont know if this applied for all awards?

    Here you have some info about the Wound Badge of 20 July 1944
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wound_Badge

    It was only given out to 24 men so it's pretty rare

    Not all of them. All badges and decorations of the NSDAP and its various organisations remained banned, as were those related to the establishment and consolidation of the Nazi state and all achievement badges.

    The "regular" wound badge (in the denazified 1957er version) was among the re-permitted ones, but the 20 July 1944 wound badge remained banned and cannot be worn in any form.

    (Also, the wartime awards were not turned in and replaced; the recipients had to purchase their 1957er awards from the manufacturers/retailers at their own expense.)
