Attractive, non-maker marked 'variant-pattern' example of a black-class wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz') being an example that shows the typical 3 'vertical stripes'-makers'-designation on its back
The attractive - and actually scarecely encountered! - black-class WB does show only minimal wear and/or aging but truly retains most of its original, black-coloured- and/or somewhat 'shiny'- ie. glossy-like finish: it only shows just minimal wear and was simply nicely preserved over the years. The (non-magnetic) wound-badge is as stated a piece that is void of a makers'-designation but that shows the typical 3 'vertical stripes'-pattern (ie. makers'-designation) on its back as is only seen on VWAs by this maker (as can be seen on the pictures). Of course, are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped- and also non-magnetic) pin and/or: (typical) catch (-set-up) fully functional and of course present. This piece has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal dust and/or minimal staining as to be expected. Simply a neat variant-pattern 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz' that is I deem accordingly priced!
