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.........

    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.
