Hello Everyone,
I was wondering if this gold wound badge is made by Godet. It looks similar to the earlier posted Godet, but unmarked. I have had it for a while and have always wondered. If not Godet, then who? I can post more pics if needed.

Sincerely Andy Berentsen

Hi Andy,

Yes indeed is looking like a Godet or Junker WB, not only from the hardware but the flush swas. on the arms at the edge.
Keep in mind Godet and Junker WBs are almost indentical even on the weight, if you have L/12 WB to compare.

It is the heavier WB that i have along with the Junker as i said and weights:

41.4 gr the Godet and 41.6 the Junker.

What weight has yours?

Hi Chris,
I really appreciate you getting back to me. It has been bugging me as to the type of badge this is. It is very very heavy. I don't have any other badges to compare it with. I will try and get a weight soon. Is there any other way of telling the maker, without the maker mark?
I know this thread was about rare makers, and I kinda went off on a tangent with mine (sorry) but I do appreciate the help

Sincerely Andy Berentsen

Hi Andy,

Don't worry about the thread because we speaking for WBs

The points who determined the maker of the unmarked badge usually are:

The design, the dies, the hardware set up and the weight comparing with the maker marked WBs.

Looking forward to see the weight of your award.

Not sure if this is deemed rare or not, but it's the only one of two I know of or have seen in this guise to date.

A cupal wound badge with variation set up, the set up is enocountered on I think, Imperial sorts (I don't recall the period of those) and a Spanish wound badge.
