The following maker marks are found on period Heer/SS war badges produced between 1939-1945

 

As can be seen in various images of maker marks in this section, makers used their "LDO" (Leistungs Gemeinschaft der Deutscher Ordenshersteller, Administration of German orders Manufacturers) numbers to mark their badges

For a list of "LDO" click on the link, below

"LDO" numbers

 

It should be noted that manufacturers also produced the same badges without any maker marks - therefore, unmarked badges should not be dismissed as originals purely because they are devoid of any marks.
