    Hi Jonas,

    The strike of the stamp is a bit light and consequently it appears to be just a 'K' when in fact it should read 'FK' for Fritz Kohm . This badge is one of 3 variant maker marked examples and is known as the "Type 2" with the MM on the helmet skirt. The "Type 3" is MM'd 'FK' in the swastika and the "Type 1" is MM'd 129, also within the swastika.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks Ned I will examine the badge more if I can find out the "F".

    Another "Light Strike" example of the same, which isn't uncommon, but you get the idea.
