Default Pair of BWB L/14 with and without Packet

Hello All,

Found these two Friedrich Orth L/14 black wound badges at shows recently - the one without the packet was from the SOS. I didn't find many examples posted, and one thread referenced this version of the maker mark "L/14" as the more difficult to find. Thought I'd post them for additional references.

It is interesting how all examples have the same (massive) corrosion problem which looks to originate from where the hardware was soldered on the reverse.

Enjoy,

Eric

Hi Eric,

Both nice Wound Badges by Friedrich Orth, showing the typical corrosion from the over-abundant use of soldering paste.

Best regards,
Tom

Nice set and in really nice condition which is mostly the main problem when it comes to L/14 badges.

Thank you Tom and Andreas!

I expected it was overuse of a flux or paste or something of the sort...

Typical Hobacher-Orth examples with the usual most of the times corrosion-soldering issues.

If you notice you have different style maker mark of the two, one has the Elzevir style, and for the record the stamped mark when you find by this maker is very scarce.

Both nice additions Eric, well done.

Interesting to see the two different marking styles.

Tom,

It does look like two distinctly different style maker marks in this same position on the reverse:

I do believe the obverse, however, is the same die. The background dots line up quite well as do the laurel leaves. The dots at the top of the wreath along with the leaf just to the right of top center on the badge "without packet" are mishapen due to the corrosion coming through:
