This is a Lovely World War I Imperial German Silver Grade Wound Badge Cut Out Type which is equivalent to a Purple Heart. The silver version was awarded to enlistees wounded either three or four times during enemy interaction or who had suffered various other traumas such as the loss of a hand or foot, partial deafness or brain damage. The badge shows a helmet with two crossed swords behind it.
Approximately 1-5/8" in height and 1-1/2" in width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Vertical T-style pin with C catch.
This is from an Imperial Germany collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MHJM20 LAHEX03/13/21 SAFJX06/17/22
