Verwundetenabzeichen gold and silver - copy or original?

Recommended Posts

The repros I've seen have the front lip of the helmet more or less level where the top and bottom of the 3rd and 4th set of leaves meet. The catches on the repros I've seen are different too but there are no doubt variations of copies.

Hello Don,
Being shiny doesn’t really worry me as Germans had plenty of opportunities to go and buy themselves a new award if the old one looked a bit tatty on their evening dress but the lack of detail is interesting.
I don’t see the lack of detail but then I’ve been away from Imperial for a good number of years, below are badges that came from people we should be able to trust and I don’t see any difference in the details from those above apart from helmets and pin attachments however, the cut out silver has the flattest sloping ridge to the side of the helmet I’ve ever seen and is possibly cause for concern.
