Verwundetenabzeichen 1939 in Schwarz

This award is slightly different than the Spanish Wound Badge, because the crossway placed swords are somewhat broader and the new steel helmed type, the M35 model is used for this badge. The swastika on the helmet is slightly lager and the dots on the intermediary fields are on this badge placed in horizontally lines. Further is the badge oval shaped with a laurel leaves wreath at the outer edge of the badge. At the base of the badge is a knot and at the top are three berries underneath each other placed. The black version is usually hollow at the reverse and it is made of many different materials. The most common are made of brass and steel. Because there were so many different producers of this award, there are multiple pin with hook constructions. The most common is a thin round pin with a simple hook construction. The black version is awarded for 1 or 2 wounds.
