Otto Schickle - Pforzheim

(aka Schickle/Mayer)

Generally called 'Schickle/Mayer' badges, by the collecting community, due to the head of the Präsidialkanzlei, Dr. Otto Meissner, signing a decree, in June 1941, stating that the firm of Otto Schickle was prohibited from the manufacture and trade of orders and medals founded after January 1933....the reasons remain unclear.

Schickle, however,  were allowed to sell off certain parts of their leftover stock and the firm of B.H Mayer was one of the purchasers at a later LDO supervised sale.
