R.S. Prussia Wreath/Star Mark

1905 - 1910

The RS Wreath and Star logo, trademarked in Germany in 1905, was used by itself and in combination with "Prussia." or "Suhl.". This is the only logo that is composed of two colors, red and green. Here, it appears that the Prussia combination was used just for American exports, the Suhl used for exports to other markets. These marks were used from 1905 up to 1910, when they were replaced by all green combinations. The distinction from modern counterfeits may be made by the fact that genuine marks have periods after Prussia or Suhl.
