Default Silver wound badge

Hello everybody,

Just recently aquired this German Silver Wound badge and Im not really an Imperial German collector so I have not much clue as to whether this is a nice original or not. Some help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Brayden

I'm sorry Burman, would love to help but Imperial isn't my strong suit either..
I'm not sure about the pin setup,

Hope someone can help,

-Mats

[QUOTE=Masch19;8208814]It is a new fake


I think Masch19 is right. The pebbling looks suspect to me, also hardware too, not to mention the reverse finish, which is not too inspiring. Although a fan of the old Imperial Wound Badges, I would err on the side of caution on this one personally Brayden.

Regards
Norman

Yikes looks like I dug myself a bit of a hole on this one. I was afraid of that when it arrived. I'll try to contact the seller and see if he will issue a refund or at least an explanation.. At least I didnt loose an arm or a leg.

Thanks guys for all the help

Regards

Brayden
