    Default Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber "92" for Review.

    Hello, Gentlemen

    I'm about to pull the trigger on this wound badge. I'm confident that it is authentic, but the bubbling on the finish has me a little concerned.

    Advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm sure others will agree but that is actually in favor for the badge being authentic. This is a reaction the zinc had to the base metal when it was applied; the fakers have a hard time copying this trait!

    I agree with William. This is a zincer - I have seen others from this
    maker where the 'bubbling' does not show as much.........

    Hi William,

    I'm not so much concerned with it's authenticity, but with it's stability. I tend to like to keep my pieces as-is and don't know if this one should be treated a special way to preserve the finish.

    Nice One Joe, maybe a little Vaseline for her? That's all I can think of...

    This would be a nice example for you to add to your collection Joe!
    Since there is no zinc pest to speak of, I would not really recommend a vaseline bath, just be sure to keep it somewhat enviromentally stable and you should be okay.

    Thanks for the kind words, gentlemen!

    I don't really mind the bubbling... I actually prefer the pieces of my collection to be salty. I just wanted to make sure that the finish isn't something that would vanish on me.

    if it survived a World War with this much finish I doubt YOU would be its demise.....

    The bubbling should be fine and I agree with the others that any treatment should be avoided.

    Keep it in a stable environment and don't handle it more than necessary - that same with any decoration - and it will see you out!
