A very nice and original WWII German Wound badge in gold here. Though this badge is unmarked, it is almost certainly a tombak "30" badge, manufactured at the Vienna state mint (Hauptmünzamt Wien). This badge shows some minor wear and slight discoloration on the obverse but has no major damage. A large amount of original gold finish remains. On the reverse, there is normal contact wear under the pin where it's brace rests against the badge. Displays beautifully. 


The Wound Badge (German: Verwundetenabzeichen) was a German military decoration first promulgated by Wilhelm II, German Emperor on 3 March 1918, which was awarded to soldiers of the German Army who were wounded during World War I. Between the world wars, it was awarded to members of the German armed forces who fought on the Nationalist side of the Spanish Civil War, 1938–39, and received combat related wounds. It was awarded to members in the Reichswehr, the Wehrmacht, SS and the auxiliary service organizations during World War II. After March 1943, due to the increasing number of Allied bombings, it was also awarded to civilians wounded in air raids. Generally speaking: 5 or more wounds, total disability, or death were required to obtain a gold grade award.
