I am very glad I did a search of "Reichsbetriebsnummer" which is stamped on a vintage fur coat I juat purchased. The coat is lined with suede and the Rsbn is stamped on the suede along with another word I cannot fully make out --- bhrmachtbigentum ---
and a large number 3. I will take a photo is anyone is interested. I am so curious what region the material is from and what it was used for. the numbers are 0/1255/0061. All I can make out form the list provided is that it was used for Industry (0).
This is wild! I might have sage this coat before wearing it again being that I have Jewish heritage all around me. Kind of creeps me out if this was a wartime material. Ancestors could have been killed by the man wearing it. Amazing it ended up with me and very interesting. Thanks for compiling the info!

Hi my fellow collectors ,
Here we have a direct hit :
RBNr. 0/0250/2552 is the firm of Rohde & Wöllmann , Uniform maker Berlin
RB number 0/0487/0002
Hi, I have this RB number 0/0487/0002 in a Heer M43 cap. Wondered if anyone has come across the maker or can identify the town it was made in?
Not a known number, but made in the Hanover region.

Hi, wondered if anyone has come across this particular RB number (in an M44 jacket) before. The town (0350) seems to be Leipzig:- 0/0350/0015
PS - The number is faded and doesn't show well in a photograph, but can be seen in daylight. I'm 90% + sure the last 2 digits are 15.
Yes , Leipzig but I have not 015, only 014 to 018.....
Another one for any additional information, it is a trapezoid insignia Luftwaffe Officer M43 cap,
with the RB Number of 0/0496/0764.
Thanks to Ade's detective work, the '0496' indicates a Hamburg maker, it would be nice to nail
down the exact details though....
Living in hope,
...and the other with metal parts.
here you can see all entries of Jablunkau in 1942.
The sole producer of anything leather related was the
Bata , Schuh Lederwerke
so my fellow collectors chances are very high that the maker
RBNr. 0/0485/002/ was Bata.
Yes I can confirm 0/0520/0017 is HPC....
