(CS1033) A nice example of a standard issue Silver Wound Badge by the maker 107 for Carl Wilde of Hamburg. The award is the later zinc style that has a silver plating applied and has a countersunk hinge and hook. The award has minor wear and tear as can be seen from the scan, but still in very good condition GBP 75.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1161) A Cased Silver Wound Badge. The badge is contained in its hinged maroon coloured vacuum sealed case of issue which is maker marked HAUPTMUNZAMT WIEN III. The case to the inside has a white paper lid and a red cut out to take the early tombak award. The award has wear to the high points with the bronze/brass showing through from the silver. The award itself is maker stamped No. 30 and has the usual hinge and hook and pin often found by this maker. Very nice to find a matched maker example. Very pleasing to the eye. Part of a group of items brought back by a British Serviceman at the end of the war and stored in a card box. GBP 225.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1334) A slate grey Silver Wound Badge that was once a gold example. This is only confirmed by the pin and pin rivet, which are both bright gilt in colour. The silver badge is a one piece cast type with a hinge and hook cast into the main manufacture of the badge. The badge retains nice detailing and has the tiny 4 mark to the base just below the pin hook. In very good condition. Priced as a silver one. GBP 60.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC580) A Silver Wound Badge that originally came with a soldbuch (MC577). The badge is a late war zinc example that has oxidised grey, as is often the case. The hinge and hook are cast into the main construction of the badge and to the base of the badge below the pin hook, there is a tiny 4 stamped, for the maker Steinhuer & Luck. The badge could do with sympathetic cleaning as it has definitely been used and worn in service. GBP 60.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC807) A Late War Zinc German Silver Wound Badge that was originally gold. This can be denoted by the use of the gold pin. The badge is a classic 30 and has a cast in hinge and hook. IT also has the number 30 in raised digits to the reverse, just above the cast in hook. The badge has toned and absorbed its gilt finish, and is still an attractive piece. Priced as a silver example. The badge was recently discovered in a biscuit tin, by an old soldier's family, after he died. There were also his service papers and other awards. GBP 60.00 (UK Pounds)

(S447) A German Silver Wound Badge being a maker marked No. 65 with a cast in hinge and hook. The hook has been bent by someone, upwards, but is still intact. The 65 is just above the hook. Apart from a couple of clunks, the badge is in good overall condition, and is a used and awarded example. Probably of mid war construction, the badge would be a 95 example if it weren't for the wear and tear. Priced for this. GBP 70.00 (UK Pounds)

(S232) An Early issue used and worn Silver Wound Badge being the type associated with the Vienna State mint. The badge is unmarked. The badge as stated, has been used and worn heavily in service and retains some of the original silver finish, as can be seen from the scan. The reverse pin, hinge and hook are intact, but show straining. All in all, in good condition. GBP 50.00 (UK Pounds)

(R302) A Silver Wound Badge in used and worn condition. The badge is a zinc example that was silver plated. This plating has peeled as can be seen from the scan. The award is the type with the cast in hinge and hook and as far as I can see, there are no maker's marks to it. In good used condition, the badge is a combat worn example. GBP 47.50 (UK Pounds)
