Designed in-house at Ludwig & Mayer and issued in 1915 [Seemann]. Credited to Albert Auspurg. [Reichardt] A leicht (light) weight followed in 1928.
Both weights were digitized by Walter Schatzmayr for Delbanco (2014). Delbanco credits the original design to Christian Ollert (a mix-up with Schelter & Giesecke’s Großmütterchen?). Goldmarie (Peter Wiegel, 2015) is another digital interpretation.
