The maker mark is L/54
I do not like the hinge/pin/catch arrangement on this one.
Perhaps someone else with more experience with
this maker can say for sure.........
Is this a common maker?
L/54 - Schauerte & Hohfeld, Ludenscheid. Yes, a fairly common maker of TR awards. Very nice award you have there, hope it works out for you!
Thanks, I hope it does too, I really like this badge!
I think the hindge is wrong too.
The Gold grades usually have the arched maker mark and the silver grades have the straight mark as in this example:
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
I just realized that the maker mark is L54 NOT L/54 like a previously stated.
