Is possible, but Peter Küpper was not the only headgear manufacturer in Wuppertal-Ronsdorf.
There was another large factory for headgear, managed by Albert Kempf and a smaller concern,
being Fritz Iserlohe.
Further there were eight more headgear manufacturers in the Wuppertal-area, mainly in Wuppertal-
Elberfeld (which is also mentioned at the shield), being Heinrich Helten, Jäger & Kemper, Karl vom Dorp,
Paul Märker, Wilhelm Mittelstädt, Ernst Pohl & Sohn, Werner Pohl and Rudolf Linder. All of these were RZM
related and listed in 1938.
So, it is possible there were some more that manufactured for non political organization related.
