The type 3 version does not have the fine " artistry" of the type I and II but is more angular and utilitarian looking ---heavier metal stamped wound badge with heavier type 2 pin as shown in the HAMELMAN book. Original black low gloss paint showing honest wear ( it is untouched in its original condition) --- an late quality stamping !!! PLEASE check my ebay store for more fine imperial badges and medals---- I am selling most of my entire wound badge collection in preparation for retirement--- 9 have already sold at a small 1 day militaria show and I will be attending other 2 day shows on upcoming weekends when the ebay store will be closed!!
