Following on John's excellent thread on Luftwaffe Badge Makers Marks, here are some of those which will be found on KM War Badges.

So far, on KM Badges, only seen as the LDO Herstellermark, L/56. None noted yet with the F&BL initials.

Found on, - U-Boat Badge, Marine Artillerie Badge and Minesweeper.

Hello Gordon,

This is great information! I'm going to a couple of markets in Cologne tomorrow and although I won't be buying any KM badges, I'll be checking them to see if anything has sunk in.

Hello,

First of all great thread. Even though it is Imperial, I think it should be included, here is an original Walther Schott hallmark as found on an Imperial U-boat badge. As I understand Schott was the designer of the badge, not the maker (probably Juncker).

Regards,

Jody
