Show your immaculate Godet Spangen!

Recommended Posts

Ah Claudio, you won it? Simple, but though a very nice one, really.

What are those maker marks on the Honour Crosses? First is a "CEJ" for C.E. Juncker, berlin - but what are those two others?! Never seen before... is that "GEBR. G. & CO, BERLIN" ?!

Interesting that Godet used awards from other makers on some bars instead of the ones they produced. Perhaps the recipiant supplied them.

Thank you Seeheld for showing your Godet's Frackspange. It has quite a weird but nice backing... I have never seen anything like this. Is it possible to be able to determine until when Godet applied the metallic labels on the back and when they started using the black with white inscription labels? I'd say that the metallic labels there were applied in the 20ies and the other from the earlier 30ies...

Any ideas or any hard evidence on labels?

ciao,

Claudio

Another Godet... this time Bayerisch!... Very likely a Reserve Officer of the 13 Inf. Regt. Kaiser Franz Josef von ?sterreich... ;-)
