This is a 1939 pattern die-stamped magnetic sheet metal construction, hollow-backed wound badge with a black finish. The badge is in the form of an embossed oval shaped laurel leaf wreath, featuring an embossed M35 pattern helmet, with a swastika in the center over crossed swords.The background has a stippled finish. The original black finish rates about 98%. The reverse of the badge is a mirror image of the obverse and has a crimped soldered hinge, a thin round vertical pin, and a heavy soldered catch all of which is intact. There area few light rust specks on the reverse side of the badge, however, the finish is still all there.
A nice example, in fantastic condition!
