Nice collections. I never collected this stuff before but had afew HJ things arrive and really like it. I only have a couple of things, a HJ Breadbad I posted in the equipment forum and a HJ belt buckle that really worn or de nazified, marked KH M4/49
Bread bag is marked with the owner
"KHAFEN ARN." = L'hafen a./Rh. = Ludwigshafen am Rhein
I hope I'm wrong but that name and address don't look right. The name looks like black ink while the rest looks blue. The letters in the second part of the address looks like a different persons writting.
And I think it's L' Haven A/RN.
I don't know much and if it's been posted before it's probably passed the test. Still like the bag.

Thanks guys for the info, its definatly L'Hafen A./Rh., would never have worked it out. I guess its his name, town, district and date of birth?
Rudolf Karl, I gave it the light test and under the loupe there is consistent wear. The name could have been written first, then posting after or by someone else once he was assigned but not sure.
"Bürgerstr. 82" is no district but the streetname and house no. In fact, you will still find the very same address today if you try Google Maps, for example. The house may also be still there but unfortunately StreetView doesn't work for Ludwigshafen am Rhein. There's a single Panoramio pic though from very close to No. 82. It can give you a modern day impression of the area.
Bürgerstrasse is in the today's zipcode 67063, being a part of north-east Ludwigshafen in the
area for Friesenheim and up to along the river Rhine.
