Verwundetenabzeichen vs Verwundetenabzeichen.....

Article about: It is fake for me, one thing more to look is the sign of eletric welding on the pin mount, totally agree with the rings. Regards

    Default Verwundetenabzeichen vs Verwundetenabzeichen.....

    I just received my new wound badge from an on-line auction and suspect it to be a fake. The badge on the left is authentic since it was given to me by a German vet who fought in Russia.....but the one on the right....not so sure. They both have "30" on them but the one on the right is a little thinner and the clasp looks different. What do you think?

    The one on the right is a Gold Wound badge

    Some '30' marked badges with thick pins are an original variation,
    but I'm not sure about this one.........

    I didn't see any gold on it......was it all worn off?

    You can actually see traces of gold around the helmet and on the pin.

    Yes, I looked at it more closely and did indeed see some traces of gold. So was $30 a reasonable price? I was hoping I did not get suckered once again.

    Here is what I'm used to seeing on a large-pin '30' marked badge.
    Leads me to believe the one above on the right is fake.........

    Steve I agree the pin and detail are bad the one on the left looks ok to me.

    Hi,
    The right badge is unfortunately a fake IMO . The Hauptmünzamt badges show traces of “year rings”, like on a tree, on the back side. Look at the one on the left where these rings clearly can be seen, but not on the right badge. Also, check Steve´s link to the gold Hauptmünzamt badge. This badge also shows these rings.

    So if you can spot these rings on a Hauptmünzamt badge it is definitely an original badge.

    Original black grade badges go for between $30-$60. Silver grade approximately
    $70-$150, and gold grade usually $300 and up. I've also noticed an increase
    in price for wound badges lately from certain dealers.
    It pays to study.........


    You need to contact the seller for a refund.
