The following maker marks are found on period Heer/SS war badges produced between 1939-1945




It should be noted that manufacturers also produced the same badges without any maker marks - therefore, unmarked badges should not be dismissed as originals purely because they are devoid of any maker's marks.

Frank & Reif, Stuttgart. Rare but known makers mark, could be a satellite company. Features in Phil DB's book (not this particular bronze PKA though). Stewy

Few more Junckers.

Last one is included for the sake of completeness rather than it being stamped on an award (it's stamped on a gorget hanger).
