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.

Another product of that company was seen in an earlier thread:
Judge Robe original or fake??
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.
