Muetzenfabrik

Article about: F.B. Reichenbach is about 10 km (6 miles) away from me. If you want, I'll make a photo of the building. If it is still standing.

    I am very sorry to read of the difficulties of your collecting in South America. A very sobering thing, indeed. We in the USA are spoiled in so many ways, and I am intensely aware of this fact, having lived overseas for a significant part of my life. Labor shortages were constant in the uniform trade, actually, but I should check as to when slave labor started, as I think in wartime, but I do not know. The SS economic enterprises used slave labor from the outset, of course, but many of the industrial cap firms we discuss here also used slave labor, a fact unremarked by Wilkins, who tendentiously white washes these personages of their complicity in Nazi crimes large and small, the theft of Jewish property
    and forced labor. The biography of the Assmann brother who constructed the SA Zeugmeisterei and then RZM outlet in Berlin was viciously Jew baiting, and he made no bones about it in the glory years of the regime.

    Indeed history shows us that there is no glory without many of these things, what's going to weigh on my conscience on these items produced on the basis of slave labor, this is very bad.
    I know Asmann was a major manufacturer, from buttons to badges, but Asmann was a single company or a number of dealers who produced for him?
    I do not get it right, Asmann was responsible for creating the RZM code ??
    Sorry to ask so many things, please sir FB, answer when possible and if I'm bothering please do not hesitate to let.
    Thank you so much.
    PS: I have a great interest in the Jewish question, including reading a book Erick Larson, I came across terrible things done before the war, absurd things happened, the role of SA seems very evident in his book, nor will I mencionaro role of SS because it is like war dogs without training.

    Phenomenal, F-B! You are correct about the limited interest in the manufacture and retail of these items--there are maybe 10 of us who share your passion.

    I have heard of Uniform Stubben, and have seen a hat with their label, but of course I cannot find it now.
    Also interesting to see the A-SS visor for sale in 1942, once again refuting common "myths".

    The visor cap display the officer is looking at also appears to feature a nice Teno leader's visor.

    Thanks again, and if you get ahold of that Meister Muetzenmacher, tell him we have a job for him!

    What would be the A-SS cap?
    What the myth behind its manufacture? He would have ceased to be manufactured in 1942 ??
    Thanks

ID:	928972One of the Assmann family was commanded by Goebbels to create an SA supply organization, in very modest form, in Berlin ca. 1927. This brauner Laden became a fabled part of the Nazi struggle for Berlin led by Goebbels against the socialists and the communists, as well as the Weimar government generally.
    Assmann told his story ca. 1936 or 1937 to the UM correspondents, and this initial phase of the NSDAP and SA in Berlin was intensely anti Jewish, and also against
    Jews in the Berlin textile trade.

    Sensational, that's what I need to tell my students, perfect, I see that in addition to classes on caps, the most important are the history lessons, this information is very important, it shows the patriarchal and selfish as politics and industry Can be. I've imagined it, but had no property to speak in class. I read an article that said that almost more than 50% of foreign currency purchased in the Third Reich were stolen from Jews.

    This is an image of a store front in 1942. The collector old wife tale says that the black cap vanished in the fall of 1939, which is absurd.

    There is a huge and excellent literature on all of this in English and German in detail.

    I really identified a lot with the know of discussion that you produce in this forum, StoneMint commented that always collects items Mint, and the reason is the same as I imagine, are ordinary people and how to produce, how all this was done, did not interest me big names, so I wanted so much that cap that you sent the link, it's about the item, not on the name behind him, I do not care so much the soldier, but the piece.
    Thank you, FB.

    I couldn't have said it better. I always get questioned on the other site as to why I collect only minty items, when they want "combat used", and why I should care about something as lowly, say, as the Bergbaudienstmuetze. I always told them that I was concerned more with who made the hat, versus who wore it, and how it was made, retailed, and distributed, and what regs went into its making. It seems to fall on deaf ears, despite multiple explanations. Maybe I just lament the passing of a true art form, bereft of plastics, polysters, and cheap, tinny sta-brite insignia--"pre-war quality" truly does have a meaning, as far as I am concerned.....

    StoneMint, Mr managed to summarize all I could never write with my bad English. Tell me a single item that can be purchased today with the quality and craftsmanship that many did these caps and uniforms. This is the most amazing.
    Perfect.
