    I find a listing for Stephan in Muhlhausen doing business as "ghq" code and in Thum as "ajd".

    I show Hansen & Braun in Solingen doing business as "gyp".

    This comes from John Walter, "German Military Letter Codes". I hope this helps.

    Virtually all the reference books are out of print. Use Google to find second hand ones or look here: http://oldmilitarymarkings.com/codes_full.html
    At the bottom of the page are links alphabetically posted showing all makers.
    Many were small businesses not large companies. Since they were scattered around Germany and small they were difficult to pinpoint for removal.
