    Verwundenabzeichen good or bad?

    Hello all,

    I've seen this 2 verwundenabzeichen, looks to me gold and silver? Main question is, are they good or bad? And are the indeed a gold and silver one?

    Thanks in advance.

    Both looks good to me, a SWB by Meybauer and a GWB by Hauptmünzamt

    Don´t throw away your fake WB´s! Get in touch with me.
    I collect them for reference purposes for the benefit of the hobby (for the right "fake" price of course).

      Both look fine to me as well, nicely marked Meybauer in silver and later-war Hauptmunzamt in gold.

      If it doesn't have a hinge and catch, I'm not interested......well, maybe a little

        Thank you both for your comment. Is it possible to say from this pictures of these are made of zinc or perhaps tombac?

              Silver & Gold solid-backed Wound Badges can be found in tombak/brass, in addition to zink. Earlier in the war they used the higher quality base metal llike tombak/brass, but around early 1942 most manufaturers switched to zink.
