    Default Can't make out R.A.D. topper cover ID

    I actually thought it would be easy. I have a R.A.D. pole topper but I also have it's protective cover. Very delicate shape now. The stamping on it looked like it would be very easy to read but it's not. Maybe because it is some sort of vinyl. There is also something written inside by hand and those pics turned out fairly well.

    With 3 different magnifiers here is what I think I see on the outside:
    S(?)unk Hulle
    D.R.?.M.
    Berlin-Schoneberg (this one I could read and like were it's going).
    Geb ???? .2

    I'm very interested in finding out because I don't think there are many pole toppers out there that can be traced to a certain place.

    Pictures to follow in unknown order and crap quality.

    Thanks and I know you like it. I think this would make it a special piece.

    My apologize to all that were scratching their heads at the weird stuff ... somehow part of a material
    order for work got in there.

    Proof reader leader,

    Please as this thing needs to be sealed soon or it won't last.

    I did find the second word on the first line to be (I think) "hulle" with the umlaut over the 'u'.
    Means many things but makes sense as = containers, housing, case, bags/suitcases ... to protect contents.

    Also the next line: D.R.G.M. or Deutches Reich Geschmacksmuster or Gebrauchmuster.

    I'm at a lose for that first letter on the first line but looks like *unk-hulle.
    Third line is Berlin-Schoneberg.
    Also don't know about last line.

    I'm thinking that is all the manufacturers number or makers mark of the protective cover for pole toppers + whatever else. Would be nice to know.

    The numbers inside (hand written) are probably the more important.
    So my thoughts are that for someone that can read this and has understanding the mind will fill in the missing parts.

    Thanking you in advance,
    Rudy
