I thought that having a quick and easy reference guide to the maker marks used on Luftwaffe badges would be useful... So, here it is.

There are a few missing, which I'll add as soon as I get the time to photograph them.

 

As mentioned, this is a general guide to Luftwaffe badge markings... Not all manufacturers produced the complete series of badges, so, for example, BSW produced pilot/para badges and clasps but is not known for making observers badges.. G.H Osang produced para/ground assault badges and clasps but is not known to have made any of the qualification badges, so, seeing these particular marks on the type of badge that we know they didn't make should be a 'red flag'.

 

Each maker's original mark, like the badge, has its own characteristics...Study the original and it should help in cutting down the odds of picking up a fake..

 

 

 

1st up...

Assmann marks.

 

Top left.... Pre /Early War.

Top right.. Mid/Late war

Bottom..... Double mark.. Mostly found on early pieces made in aluminium.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea .
