… but wait, there's a catch!

I purchased this from the most recent AGM catalogue:

In addition to being gilt plated .800 silver…

… the catch assembly features an intricate hinged lock:

It's a fair assumption this badge would never be separated accidently from the tunic to which it was pinned, provided there was sufficient Soldat remaining to wear the tunic. :(

Wow! That is the first 800 marked wound badge I have ever seen let alone one with an extra catch. Thanks for sharing.

Very, very nice, well bought. First 800 silver marked Wound Badge I have ever seen. Very cool.

Jeff and Anna at AGM work very hard at finding excellent quality militaria. First rate operation in my book.

Hello,
What a beautiful gold wound badge. I have wanted a 800 marked example for years.

Regards,
Jody
