Verwundetenabzeichen 1939 in Silber

This award is slightly different than the Spanish Wound Badge, because the crossway placed swords are somewhat broader and the new steel helmet type, the M35 model is used for this badge. The swastika on the helmed 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 silver version has a solid reverse and can have a thin round pin or a broad flat pin with hook construction. Most of the silver versions are made of copper and zinc and were than silver plated. The silver version was awarded for 3 or 4 wounds of for a single wound that resulted in the loss of a hand, a foot or an eye. For a wound that meant brain damage, facial disfigurement of deafness, also the silver version was awarded.
