    I've only seen Assmann using the word "Lüdenscheid" and on your item it is Luedenscheid. Was it maybe for export?

    Here is a leather tab from Assmann for example:

    I have a feeling that this is not Assmann the badge maker from WW2 but Assmann the supplier of church regalia ...Who is still in business.
    It certainly looks like a communion chalice to me.

    Yes i said to myself same idea.
    But no Umlaut means export ?
    I 'm very curious and this item can be very intersting in collection.
    Especially when you know the third Reich position about the Catholicism, and Himmler point of view.

    @saladin, i think so too.

    Agreed on all counts. The company's website:

    F. W. Jul. Assmann - Evangelischer Kirchenbedarf, Pfarrer- und Juristenamtsbekleidung (Talare, Roben)

    Another product of that company was seen in an earlier thread:

    Judge Robe original or fake??

    No; it doesn't. Substituting the Umlauts ä, ö and ü with ae, oe and ue was and is common wherever the use of the proper Umlauts is for some reason inconvenient or technically difficult, and this would have been the case with these tiny, simple, all-capital block letters.

    That angle is very cool from a collectors point of view, I agree! So if the price is right why not?

    Ok, thank you for this! I thinked about this ü / ue thing for a while but I did not figured that out.

    And now I know what "Umlauts" means

    For me, the most important in my collection is to replace an article in his historical context.
    Item should "spoke" about his period.

    The seller sold it around 40 euros, such expensive if post war.

    I just got answer from the site linked by HPL2008,
    they said :

    Wenn Sie wissen wollen, ob der Kelch aus unserem Hause stammt ist die Antwort ja ! Wenn Sie wissen wollen aus welchem Jahr dieser Kelch stammt kann ich diese Frage nicht beantworten.

    So, i' m going to keep your advices and let it.
