Verwundetenabzeichen silver, repro or not?

    The K&Q badge in silver is good, it's known as the 'Late War Type' to differentiate it from the other solid zinc badges they made earlier on. The type 1 design is not really a version I'm too familiar with, but I don't see any glaring anomalies, but best wait for other opinions on that one.

    The type 1 badge is not one that I am comfortable with. A search of the internet will
    show this particular design, that is, helmet shape, bow, & wreath with its missing
    berries at the 11.o'clock position rampant in all guises. They will be found as Imperial,
    Imperial cut-out, First type & first type cut-out. I have also seen these marked L54
    for Schauerte & Hohfeld Third Reich Era Imperial replacement pieces. This they are
    definitely not. Here is a link to a site that sells reproduction badges. Items GER006 &
    GER016 show Latvian made Imperial badges with the same obverse design. I pulled
    two of these from the collection because of uncertainty. There are just too many of
    this design in different configurations for my liking.

    Edit: I should have added that the K&Q is good.
