    My father passed away and has an extensive collection. Most are Hohner. Some say, made it West Germany. I know about the star between the hands which indicates they are Pre-WWII. During the war they company removed the 6 point star due to it resembling the Star of David, as not to have problems with the Nazi’s. He also has many that look like they were made for a special year, occasion, etc. I would love to sell the collection as a whole. Please contact me.
