P.S. Wilhelm Binders M.M. looks similar to early R.S.S. too.. IMHO.. any thoughts.. Just asking as I want a better understanding of the different makers and their association with others.. Not that we will ever know... But we can contrive a hypothesis though.. Gwar

Sieper changed their logo from time to time.
The well known Sieper diamond logo bear the letters RSL wich are standing for Richard Sieper of Lüdenscheid. I don't know why they used sometimes two of these diamonds at the same time, but it stands also just for RSL. At about 1936 the sons of Richard Sieper joined the company and since that time the company was called Richard Sieper und Söhne -> R.S. & S.
After the the war they used still the stylised "S" as you can see on the letter from 1954 and some years later they used SIKU wich means "Sieper Kunststoff". The SIKU logo (white lettering in a red circle) is the logo they use still nowadays on their toys. Hope this helps.
I would say the Binder company has no connection to Sieper apart from the fact that they produced also buckles and had a similar logo in a diamond.
