Nice original WWII German Silver Wound Badge here with some patina. Much of the original frosty silver finish has been lost to time. Maker marked "65" to the reverse which is the maker number of Klein & Quenzer A. G. - working pin and catch. Pin shows obvious sliver finish.


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.
