    You will have to remove the red paint as that will devalue it somewhat!!! lol... Only joking of course looks top dollar.. Cheers Terry.

    Hi Glenn,

    The company of Grossmann & Co. Wein, was a totally owned subsiduary of Ferdinand Hoffstatter Bonn/Rhein (L/19). They only produced a tombak silver badge as far as I know, although i've heard of a gold version, but never seen one.(maybe a polished silver, all the plating removed?), hence the comparative rarity. As for Hoffstatter, they never made a wound badge as far as is known.

    Regards, Ned.

    In answer to my own misguided thoughts, this gold badge has just sold minutes ago on Emeredato for 175 Euro's, so they do exist afterall.
