Nice original Waffen SS / Army Silver Wound Badge for 3 or 4 wounds (verwundetenabzeichen in silber) marked “65” (Klein & Quenzer). Nice pin and catch.

Wound Badge (Verwundetenabzeichen) was a German military award for wounded or frost-bitten soldiers of Imperial German Army in World War I, the Reichswehr between the wars, and the Wehrmacht, SS and the auxiliary service organizations during the Second World War.

After March 1943, due to the increasing number of Allied bombings, it was also awarded to injured civilians. It was ultimately one of the most common of all Third Reich decorations, yet also one of the most highly prized, since it had to be “bought with blood”.
