    Default New badges- Gold Verwundetenabzeichen and KVK1 mit Schwertern

    These have been posted here by me before, when I asked for opinions, but I am pretty excited about these two new purchases. I had to share them! Just two questions:

    1. I now have Klein u. Quenzer wound badges in silver and gold. Are there '65' marked wound badges in black? It would be nice to have a complete set by the same maker.

    2. What is the maker of my KVK? I have read about 3 different makers for L/15 and I want to get it right.

    Thanks guys!

    Hi Mo,
    Which three makers have you seen for L/15? Otto Schickle is the only maker that used L/15 and only for the four months they were in business after receiving their LDO licence.

    It was advertised as Friedrich Orth, and then I read a thread on WAF somewhere about having to confirm Schickle as being L/15. I can't remember the other one that someone else suggested. I was thinking it was in fact Schickle but I wanted to be sure. Thanks for your help.

    I quite like the patina on my KVK.

    L/15 was Otto Schickle.
    L15 was used by Friedrich Orth, despite their LDO number being L/14.

    Confused.com?

    So.......... is the mark on your KVK L/15 or L15? (Note the difference between the two, one has the L and the 15 seperated by a /, the other doesn't).

    That's weird... why would they do that?

    Just checked, it's an L/15.

    So if it is L/15 (with the forward slash) it would be an Otto Schickle made award.

    Here's to it! I've just raised the cold mug of coffee that I made and forgot about to you Mo, good luck!
    I had to settle for the 1957 versions.

    Hi Mo

    In answer to your question on the Black Wound badge the answer is yes!
