    Default Verwundetenabzeichen L/56 Funcke Brunninghaus

    Forum members

    I have had this one for a few weeks now and think I have finally learned enough to know it's authentic. It was a craft show find and bought it after looking at it twice, as I wasn't sure it was authentic. Not because of its quality, but because of the markings. It did not bend under finger pressure and is very nicely detailed but L/56 seemed wrong. I know 65 K&Q made many of these but L/56 was losing me. Bought it anyways, it was inexpensive, $35, so not too much to lose.

    Can anyone please tell me if this is a rarer maker of this award? I haven't seen many by Funcke Brunninghaus L/56 on the forum.

    I haven't seen many myself; but I'm sure someone knows more about it.

    This is an odd one to me - it's very thick and has an unusual
    type of pin arrangement I've not seen before.

    Perhaps somebody has another ?
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Nice original Funcke & Brüninghaus, good find

    I do not think this is a rare maker since I have seen some of these around on different sites for some time now.

    I have only seen F&B's with the L/56 marking thus:

    Funcke & Brunninghaus Verwundetenabzeichen are a common maker to find. Their badges are characteristically thicker than we usually see on hollow stamped black badges. You will also notice the catch is open on the left side instead of the more common right, again, another characteristic.
    The badge posted by Greenhorn is in my opinion a perfectly acceptable example of a Verwundetenabzeichen by this maker with the correct maker mark.

    Hello Greenhorn
    There is absolutely nothing wrong with this badge. If you compare the dip on the front of the helmet skirt with other verwundetenabzeichen, you will find it to be slightly
    shallower on the L/56 black badges.

    Regards

    Thank you all

    Thank you for reviewing my award here. Not a rare maker but not too common of a setup for this award, based on quasi reviews. I'm happy to have it in my display.
