There is no ð in Gothic. At least, there is no special sign for it.
The question of _grammatischer Wechsel_ (Verner's Law) is somewhat
disputed. At any rate, Gothic shows the (most probably) voiceless
interdental spirant þ. Grimm would refer to the Proto-Germanic form.
P.S. Could you give the reference, please ? That is, which of the
Brüder Grimm and where it is said, so I can check it ? Thanks !
