    This is some great responses and cant thankyou all enough. Unfortunately my primary contributions to the site will be questsions and posts of items i have. As i become more familiar hopefully i will be able to contribute more to others.

    Any suggestions on particlar books to invest in to help with all this? Im sure you all must have some treid and trues and must haves.

    With the various types of wound badges and the thin vs solid type bodies, is one more desirable than another? I seem to see the thin type with ww1 badges and more of the black. Which i hope to add to my collection at some point. I have a soldbuch that has several award papers in it that this soilder received. Id like to try and obtain copies of each to go with it all. I know one is a black wound badge, would that paper specify what type amd style or just the color?

    It differs on some certificates or entries, usually it will either state the color (Schwarz, Silber/Mattweiss, or Gold), or the grade (I, II,III), or the number of wounds received..."Einmaliger Verwundung" (First Wounding), etc...
    WWI badges are generally hollow regardless of grade...WWII Silvers & Golds are always Solid Backed while the Black is always Hollow...Yes, there are rare exceptions to the rule, but generally-speaking this is a good tip to remember...

    Hi Glenn, there are also hollow golden badges.(L/15 Otto Schickle) only one maker of them. There are more!!! Schickle was thrown out of the LDO `cause he made Hollow Golden VWA, in 1941.
    You can also find massive black ones. There are also blacks in Plastic. (Trollitul).
    Regards

    Yes, Gentlemen...but those are scarce exceptions to the rule...I'm speaking in general terms...I do appreciate the added information on those rarely-encountered examples!
    cheers, Glenn
