Army flak badge by "LM"
Army flak badge by LM. Zink construction with crimped in set up. Maker marked with the maker logo of "LM". Maker still unknown. Bad condition, very typical for these pieces. Hinge, catch and needle still intact.
Our personal opinion this maker mark should be seen as "LB" and stands for PK code 114 Ludwig Bertsch in Karlruhe. This maker who was very close to Dresden where Aurich was located shared the same design. The PK code of Aurich is 113, just one number next to 114 for Bertsch... coincidence?
Until today not a single one of these badges was found in very good condition. Even worse, 95% of them appears in VERY bad condition. The one we sell here is one of the better ones.
