The Reichsbetriebsnummer RB numbering system.

Article about: Hi Guys, the Reichsbetriebsnummer or RB number (also represented as RB Nr or Rbnr) has over the past 70 years been of much discussion with collectors of German militaria. A lot of speculatio

    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, 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

    Regards, Paul

    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.

    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,


    Cheers

    Here for all collectors interrested in the RBNr. system a try to nail down a possible
    maker.

    It started with a quite interresting variant of the M 39 Tornister that was made by using
    scrap fur and some other unusual materials.
    such as the white and blue checkered cloth for the inner liner.

    The maker is RBNr 0/0485/0002 and the Tornister dates from 1943.

    A short look in the list showed that /0485/ indicates the town of Jablunkau in Silesia.

    Of great interrest is that the /0002/ indicates that our maker is the second firm of
    Jablunkau that got it´s RBNr.

    From the 1942 telephone directory I learnt that the town of Jablunkau only had two firms
    that would qualify as possible makers of anything that could be used by the Military...
    and definitely only one that dealt with leather...

    ...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
    firm

    Bata , Schuh Lederwerke

    so my fellow collectors chances are very high that the maker
    RBNr. 0/0485/002/ was Bata.

    Best regards
