ARMY WOUND BADGE – SILVER .
This is a very fine example of the Silver Army Wound Badge. First authorized in March 1918, wound badges were awarded in three classes based on the number or severity of one’s wound(s). Black was considered the lowest (3rd Class), silver was 2nd Class, and gold was 1st Class. This is an originally-issued piece that displays very fine paint. Its reverse displays a pin. The badge is stamped.
