Jamie Cross Collectables 

(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)

(CS1200) A Mid to Late War Privately Purchased Silver Wound Badge being the seldom encountered L/24 variant. The badge as is usual for these when you can find them, has a separately applied hinge and hook of silver plated high quality metal, soldered to the reverse of the badge. There is also a lip around the edge and a central circular dish with the L/24 mark raised to it. The badge front has toned a slate grey colour. It has a pleasing appearance and is of nice quality and construction. Not an easy maker to find. GBP 99.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1320) A Silver Wound Badge maker marked L22 to the reverse. The badge is an Early to mid war example being silver plated zinc. The badge has been used and worn in service and is a textbook example of an L22. This is marked to the reverse with raised digits to the centre of the badge. A nice variation to acquire. GBP 95.00 (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)

(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)

(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)

(S586) A Well used and worn Early nickel plated tombak based Silver Wound Badge. The badge shows wear and tear to the high spots, with the tombak material coming through the silver plate, giving the badge a two toned appearance, which is quite pleasing. The badge is complete with its original pin, hinge and hook and has the maker's mark of L/54 within a box to the base, under the pin. This denotes that the badge was a privately purchased example GBP 65.00 (UK Pounds)
