Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber, MM 65

Article about: Yeah it seems to be that way with K&Q/65mm badges & looking at a few dealers stock on websites it seems to be the general rule with other makers.

    A nice original badge, can you confirm the colour of it please Roger? The remainder of the finish near the bottom looks gold on my monitor. Is this a trick of the light, the flash perhaps?

    Good observation Adrian

    Adrian,
    I did not use a flash on this picture. Looking under the magnifying glass it does appear gold or brass in color. So I got out the jewelers loupe, and it does appear golden, not silver. Hmmm. What do you think?

    I think it could be a silver version where the remaining finish has tarnished to a golden colour or it could indeed be a gold badge that has lost 99% of its finish............

    Looking at it closely I would be very tempted to say a gold badge that has lost it's finish...........

    I'll try taking some more pictures this weekend and see what happens. If it is indeed a former gold award, having lost all its finish I'll still need a truly golden one. After all, how many medals/badges/helmets/daggers/guns/etc is enough? Just one more.
    Thanks, and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

    I tried, this is the best I can do. The gold color shows up better in person, there just isn't much to work with.

    Hi Chaps, here's my silver & gold K&Q/65mm.

    roger9344 I think yours is a gold one that has lost it's finish. Most of the zinkers go this way & as you can see mine is not too clever & I am yet to see a perfect one. The giveaway that yours is gold one is the pin, as the pin colour always matches the badge.

    Has anyone ever seen a tombak silver or gold Verwundetenabzeichen made by K&Q/65mm?

    Cheers,

    Richard.

    That's interesting, I didn't know that, can that observation be applied in all cases with Wound Badges?
