Badge 'Verwundeten Abzeichen'
Here a very nicely wound badge in the black version, the badge is in good condition, all black paint is present on the front and back, the needle is still open and closable. A very nice unmarked wound badge in good condition. No defects or damage, perhaps unworn. Here some background information. A wounded badge is a wearable tribute to the soldiers wounded in war or combat. In the Netherlands, a Wearing Badge for the Wound was only introduced in 1999. The American Purple Heart, created during the American Revolutionary War, was the first example of such an award. (This item is from my private collection!)
