Here is a quote where these were being discussed on another forum.
Ralph.A large lot of wound badges from the same maker/order, stockpiled at a monastery that served as a field hospital.
Hamelman writes that:[INDENT][INDENT]"Between 1946 and 1948, several hundred of the 1939 Black Wound Badges were converted into a cross memento and sold as Pilgerandenken."
Here is a picture postcard of Kloster Weingarten, the monastery where these badges were modified and sold after WW2.
Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)
Now that's very interesting!.....
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Ralph is correct. Fakes abound, even of these! The original post war
badges should have integral hardware as shown in the following link.
Chaplains wound badge ...
You have to ask yourself the question....If these are WW2 issue, why
aren't they found in silver or gold?
well to me it looked verry strange ,but i have some strange medails vwa by my self ,and they are "real"
but i never seen something like thise ..i was just curius ...
(sorry for bad english )
Not for me unless it's produced from an original badge and has period reverse hardware...Postwar creation, either way...I'd exercise the same caution as I would with a Lappland or a Lorient Badge, lol...
Hello, this is a Pilgerabzeichen
