Description

BADGE- WOUND, BLACK, GOOD-VG, ORIGINAL WWI, (90% BLACK FINISH WHICH IS VERY OLD AND DRY), FOR 1-2 WOUNDS. WOUND BADGES WERE MADE BY MANY COMPANIES AND ISSUED TO WWI VETS LONG AFTER THE WAR ENDED. THEY WERE NOT EVEN ADOPTED UNTIL MARCH OF 1918, SO THE MAJORITY OF VETERANS NEVER GOT THEIR WOUND BADGES UNTIL THE 1920’S AND 30’S DUE TO THE CONDITION OF THE COUNTRY AFTER THE WAR. THE RESURGENCE OF GERMAN PATRIOTISM IN THE EARLY 1930’S SAW OLD MEDALS (ALL TYPES – EVEN IRON CROSSES) FINALLY ISSUED TO THOSE DUE THEM. THE DATES ON MANY ISSUING DOCUMENTS SHOW THIS.
