    The badge is good. As for how much it is worth depends on a lot of factors, how much you paid for it etc. Pricing is a dodgy wicket. Demand plays a big part. And whether you are selling to a dealer or private. Only you know how much you want to sell it for. Stewy

    Without a better shot of the hinge I would say your ASA is a BH Mayer 1.12.2 tombak. Stewy

    Hi Stewy,

    These badges were attributed as Mayer 1.12.2 tombak pieces until earlier this year when it was discovered, or rather confirmed (it was long suspected), that they were actually made by Otto Schickle (LDO L/15) up until June 1941 when the company was forced to stop producing or selling their 3rd Reich awards and badges. All of the stock was consigned to be sold by the LDO who supervised this. The buyer was the firm of B.H.Mayer (LDO L/18), who proceeded to stamp many of the badges and awards with their L/18 mark. Indeed, there are some Spanienkreuz's out there that have both the L/15 AND L/18 marks! Mayer also bought up the entire stock of Petz & Lorenz production when that company was also closed, and on some occasions their badges and awards are found also stamped L/18.

    So in this case, the badge above is likely a pre mid 1941 Schickle made badge sold under their own name, but later on all their awards and badges was probably better described as "distributed" by B.H.Mayer, the new owner of the stock.

    Sorry it's a bit complicated old pal!
