    What about dusting a bit of talc on it? Surely it wouldn't hurt and may help show up the letters/numbers that do appear to be present.

    Lighting can be very valuable in determining just what is taking place with an item, but there have been many times when getting the correct values for digital photography can be a problem. There are Luftwaffe school marked frogs, but those that I’ve seen have been for the SG 84/98 and were L.B.A. (S) marked with the “Sch.” portion appended to the school identifier. And they have all been brown in color, which is normally what would be expected for a unit marked Luftwaffe frog. With the black dress frog here appearing to have the normal age/crazing of a period frog. But with a large portion of the leather in the immediate area of the marking having a somewhat flattened/smoother appearance. Which could possibly be just something of a lighting issue, but certainly an item of interest for an “in hand” examination. FP
