    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
