And very nice too........

You know this manufacturer plagues me, it was such a prolific producer of badges yet so far I've been unable to discover their name. I'm hoping that at some point a common trait will be spotted between a badge with their symbol on & one with an RZM number & then the mystery will be solved.

Cheers

Discounting the unknowns for the moment.

Total conjecture, if it is NR, at a stretch of the imagination, it could be Nichols & Raimund a manufacturer of belt buckles, however the drawing I have seen of their mark in a circle is different, an N and R sharing the last upright stroke of the N. But we know that companys changed logos. :unsure:

Or is it RN ? :o

Don, you mention the posibility of it being FNR. Do you happen to have a clear close up of the mark?

Ah well, fun to research. I also hope something comes to light.

Joe,

It's only conjecture that it's FNR & could just as easily be PNR, NR or RN. This is the best image I have at the moment, a little out of focus I'm afraid.

Thanks, Don, best close up I've seen. I am thinking after seeing your image, NR.

:anmatcat: Now, which is the surname letter?

Here are two of me, variation of the amtstr?gerabzeichen.

They were mentioned at the beginning of the post, but the pictures disappeared over time perhaps?

Sign on my friend. A brand В in a circle. The similar brand meets on fakes, but this sign the 100% original.

Has anyone uncovered who the maker of this badge is?

A recent purchase. I searced around a little here and couldn't find a comparison example. Cheers

The maker is obscured by the needle and hard to see. F over B inside an H

Maybe this will help. Hoffstatter perhaps?

Hi Don It is a match right down to slight cutoff of the H in Gesch and the protruding C on Gesch as well. I also have a pinback version (for females possibly?) I'll scan this weekend. Thanks for showing my good man. Robert

I'll post here two versions. I'm thinking pinback may be for ladies.
