Default SA Sports Badge for War Wounded

Hello everyone,

I picked up this badge in a collection I bought.

I believe this is an original Deschler & Sohn in Gold (missing finish).

I would like some opinions on it to make sure.

Thanks,

Hayden

Hi Hayden,

In honesty, I am skeptical about this piece. The only manufacturer I have ever seen of the SA Military Defense Badge for War Wounded was the firm of Werner Redo of Saarlautern, whose RZM license number was M1/100. The piece you show has no RZM logo on its reverse and the license number appears to me to be amateurish in execution.

Thanks for sharing this piece with us; it's important to know "what's out there!"

Thanks everyone. I'll probably keep this one for a while.

Hi Hayden,

Looks to me like an original example by Deschler & Sohn of Munich.

Best regards,
Tom

By the way, these badges were only produced in Bronze grade so there were no Gold grades!

I agree with Stan (the bronze finish on these zinc pieces is usually found to have been mostly or completely dissolved over time, and some collectors are given to think that they are Silver Grade awards, incorrectly), so this matter of a "Gold Grade badge" is another cause for my being skeptical about this piece.

Very nice piece, Ron...I believe Redo was the major manufacturer of these late-war badges. I have two of their pieces in my collection. Redo also seems to have preferred brass pin assemblies for this badge...possibly because brass adhered to zinc better than most other available metals.

Cheers,

Now here is something you NEVER see! Are there any markings on the box, anywhere?

Hi Br,

Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately just a plain unnamed box. It is identical to other SA Sports badge boxes, which are also rare.
