Only minute traces of gilt wash remain to the edge of the badge around 10 o'clock on the badge which can be seen the photograph. Maker marked '30' for 'Hauptmunzampt ,Wien' with gold pin. Many think these '30' badges with gold pins are actually silver wounds badges with gold pins as stocks had ran out of silver pins. However this is the first '30' badge I have encountered with small traces of gold still remaining. The gilt finish is very minute and you need a magnifying glass to see it, however I think it does prove the fact these are indeed gold badges with the finish absorbed into the zinc rather than a silver with gold pin. Either way it is a rare gold wound badge or a nice example of a silver.
