    Default Verwundetenabzeichen - 1939 in black marked 4

    This is my new and first wound badge, I believe made from steel? A little number 4 (Steinhauer & Luck?) marked black wound badge I got from a fellow named Ron Weinand over at WAF.

    I picked it up because it seemed to have an above average amount of paint left, even though it does have some rust spots, the vast majority on the under side of the badge, and it looked original from my prior researching. The pin and catch are in fine shape, other than a bit rusty.

    Is there anything I need to do to keep this rust from spreading besides typical indoors climate control? I presume as is usual, it's best to leave it alone and not try to wipe off any of the rust? I'd like to take good care of it so future generations that come into my area of influence can enjoy it like it is today.

    A nice 'Small 4' in steel, you only need to get the other 8 black badges S&L produced for a full set!

    As for keeping it as is, well, you seem to have the right idea.

    Only 8 huh? I'll get cracking on that right away!

    Thanks for the feedback Ned. I made sure there was no chaos to the pattern on this one.

    Nice example Scott!
    I would not wipe it off but you always have the option of brushing it with a stiffer paint brush, (nothing that will scratch though), to remove the bright orange rust, might help it become less noticeable.
