Question Who made the best wound badge?

Hi guys,
Who in your opinion made the best 1939 silver of gold wound badge? My votes goes to Hauptmuenzenamt, Vienna (30). I feel their product outshines the other makers.

Hello Jody,
I voted for the 65 Klein and Q. I saw a cased one a few years ago and I was really impressed with it. Even though I don't have one to post for comparison she was a beauty. The one you posted is also a great one. I think I'm really going to like this thread.

I have to side with Gary....I like the "65" K&Q ones the best. Just an opinion with no real specific backing, but hey, that is what makes this hobby fun.

Take Care,
Jeremiah

Hi,

My favourite wound badge is my L/17, closely followed by my nickel-silver and tombak "30"s.

Regards
Mike K

OK...OK..ok, I'll be the first to fess up. I have a couple of unmarked examples. I had and have again, a condor set. I always looked at the wound badge as an easy aquire. This is true with the black hollow backs, however, the solid silver Jody posted are not as common as they used to be. A nice cased gold wound badge is also climbing in price. I am now kicking myself in the ass when I could have, I should have.

Hi Guys, well my vote also went with "30" Hauptmuenzenamt, Vienna as I have one of their gold wound badges. It is a beauty apart from the pin has been broken in half I bought it for about £9 in the late 1970's.
Cheers, Ade.

I voted for 30 because I do like those best, but like Al I am also partial to Wächtler & Lange.

This is a gold 30 - don't think I've ever seen a gold 100, anyone have one?

I have a gold 100 and I really like it although not being mint. Especially the catch is fine and the way it's attached to the badge, typical for every 100.

Cheers,
Laurens
