Jamie, nice badge.
Recently discovered evidence suggests the W in a circle with 5 dashes above the W is the mark of E. FERD WIEDMANN. Note, E FERD is five letters to correspond to the dashes. Post war images of the emblem and the factory name have been seen. It was thought to be WERNSTEIN for years but doubts had been growing.
