German WWI 1914 Black Wound Badge-This very early stamped example retains approx. 80% of its original black finish. The paint is still very good on this award. The details are also 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. The original pin, hinge and catch setup works perfectly. A very nice early wound badge.
