    Default 3 Verwundetenabzeichen in schwarz/ 3 Wounded Badge

    Hallo Kumpels

    Iīve got three german wounded badges from the russian front, two are marked (E.S.P and L/11) and one is not. They all seem to be slightly diferent from each other. One (the E.S.P marked one) is from some white metal, it has lost itīs attaching mechanism but has two holes in it, maybe so the badge could be stiched onto the uniform?. L/11 is reddish, and the unmarked one looks golden under the black paint..

    Any comments on those little finds??

    Viele Grüsse

    They all look like black awards to me. I've not seen one marked ESP before but that doesn't make it fake, the other two look ok. I'm not into the Wound badges so maybe one of the other guys can help.

    ESP is a desirable maker of only Black Wound badges, it stands for maker Eugen Schmidthaussier Pforzheim

    Thatīs a great piece of information !!! Why ESP is a "desirable" maker ? I was thinking selling one of the bages to a friend, precisely the ESP one because from all three it is in least good state. But it calls to my attention that it is not rusty at all... Should i better keep that one and sell another one? What a dilemma, because i like them all..
    By the way, and where does L/11 come from?
    Are marked badges rather rare or common?
    Sorry for so many questions but i am thirsty of knowledge...

    It is desirable as in not so common, it is still worth as much as other BWBs depending on condition.
    L/11 is the maker Wilhelm Deumer. Marked badges are fairly common and dont really increase the price that much.
    If you like them all, keep them all
