    What are the opinions of this gold wound badge. It looks like it might maybe be a fake one? The plating looks very thick, and the details on it are not so crisp looking? I read they did make hollow back ones like this.

    This is a 'tombak' version with the black coating/paint completely gone.

    Although there has been speculation that very early badges
    were hollow, I do not believe this is the case here.............

    Hi, thanks guys, then it just plain brass color now, and the black paint was taken off. Ahhh I see, thanks. I will keep looking.

    Yes, or never applied.

    I have one as well with no trace of black.

    I would not be surprised if these were actually used late war in place of 'gold' ones,
    but I have no proof of this. It's just speculation on my part.

    All the silver/zinc awards you see have the very light plating worn off - just like the WWII
    zinc TR coins. I have two 'AU' pfenig specimens that still have some silver plating
    on them, and I expect that they would not have put very much gold plating
    on 'gold' badges anyhow, especially late in the war......

    It is entirely possible, IMO.

    I have been told the same thing from a SS vet who was in Russia.

    What, about tombak badges being substituted for gold ones ?

    You mean my 'theory' could be correct ? ! ? !
