    as bad as the day is long.

    and an excellent example of a cast badge. i know that purchasing a bad piece doesn't feel all that great, but for us here, there's real value in it as a reference.

    thank you for posting it.

    yes i know its a ww1 helmet but in these helmets they didnt put swastigas ...i think they were only in one rivet helmets and the air vent was covered by the swastiga
    The condor divisions ( Germans) entered the Spanish civil war to help Franco try to win the civil war.
    This was the last year they used imperial helmets on wound badges before going to the ww2 variation.
    Looking on the internet apparently 182 black legion condor wound badges issued in Spanish civil war.
    Im looking for an a case to an 1936 olympics medal and a case to entry to austria medal. pm me If you have any spare.

    And probably a lot less awarded in the other two grades. I'm really
    surprised at how many of these Condor Legion wound badges
    I see in all grades today - there are plenty out there which
    would mean most of them are fakes or restrikes.........
    Regards,

    According to Dr. Doehle's period work Die Auszeichnungen des Großdeutschen Reiches, only the 182 black ones and a single silver one were awarded.

    Unlike the WW1- and WW2-era versions of the Verwundetenabzeichen, the one for the Spanish Civil War did not even have a gold grade instituted (simply because none was needed)!*)

    However, many more badges than those required for the members of the Legion Condor were made: This model of wound badge was actually manufactured, presented and distributed well into in the early stages of WW2 instead of the new 1939 design.
    This explains why they are more common than one would expect. (However, they are, of course, heavily faked as well.)



    *) § 3 of the Führer decree of 22 May 1939 instituting the Verwundetenabzeichen für deutsche Freiwillige im spanischen Freiheitskampf states:

    "The Wound Badge is awarded either in a black or a silver version, depending on the number of wounds (injuries)."
