Funcke and Brüninghaus was the only manufacturer who used the bayonet 98 in its embossing mold. All other manufacturers used the bayonet 98K. Thus, a quick, safe and easy assignment of unmarked pieces is possible.

It is also striking that the upper, left oak leaves once a „3 veins structure“ and on other pieces of this manufacturer a „1 vein structure“. This suggests that the manufacturer used two different embossing dies.
