The topic “B.H. Mayer” is a bit difficult, because allegedly Mayer never produced himself. The produced pieces as well as embossing forms were probably bought up by the companies “Otto Schickle, Pforzheim” and “Petz and Lorenz, Unterreichenbach”, after they were no longer allowed to produce. Mayer then only provided some songs with his L / 18 LDO number and put them into circulation. Therefore, it also happens that there are pieces with LDO labeling in the “Otto Schickle / B.H. Mayer Design” and also in the “Frank and Reif / Petz and Lorenz Design”.
