German WWI 1914 Black Wound Badge-This very early stamped example that retains approx. 50% of its original black finish. The details are very strong on this example. You can see the helmet without its WW2 swastika, for those of you who are just starting out in collecting. This is how you know it is a world war I award. There is an interesting, good quality, replacement pin on this example. This looks like it was replaced a very long time ago. A very interesting, early wound badge.
