    Unfortunately, the Herstellers G8 and G11 on your Hindenburg Crosses are unknown makers from unknown locations. Nice widows cross, looks like original ribbon too.

    I am aware of this, however it is not an important issue for me - had they been marked by a known maker it would just be a slight bonus in my opinion. And who knows, in the years to come the "G-series" of makers of the Ehrenkreuz des Weltkrieges might become known if we are indeed fortunate. I certainly hoped the ribbon for the Ehrenkreuz für Hinterbliebene would look original as that is what it is

    Thank you gentlemen for your interest. My favorite of this small assembly is the cased top one, for 25 years of voluntary fire protection service.
