I'd really like some opinions on this gold wound badge.
It's very smooth feeling compared to the silver one I have which is in slightly decaying condition, so making me wonder what this is made out of? There are the hoped for wear points around the pin and catch.
Any thoughts welcome.

To me its textbook !
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
Thanks for the comment, I was a bit worried because there are two pin types for this maker, do you know which pin style is used more?
Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)
I like it too, a typical tombak piece from maker '30' - Hauptmünzenamt, Wien.
You can find these with the needle pin as above or the wide pin. I have no idea which is the more common. Maybe try a search on the forum and see which one crops up most?
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
A great gold wound badge in excellent condition
A very fine "30". Congrats Stewy
