    Aren't these supposed to be stamped on the attachment for them to stand a chance of being original?

    they should be stamped on the back of the leaf,,these markings are poorly stamped,not the quality you would expect from a high german award

    I would pass on this one purporting to be Godet 2nd pattern but for me it's not good quality which gives it away !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    No, originals were stamped on the back of the leaves as Robert has said, I'm not sure if any were marked on the loop. Comparing to known originals, there is a world of difference between them and the award above.
