    Cab anyone help me?
    Well, Postverschlussmarken translates as Post closure mark, which I would I would interpret as a mail bag seal. Basically what I suggested in the first place. I would expect that this is a re-usable marker employed in conjunction with a wak or crimped lead seal proper.


    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares more about than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature with no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

    I am quite surprised that you have been unable to find other examples because thousands upon thousands were made.

    The RSHA, or SS- Reichssicherheitshauptamt in Berlin was the German national board of security which coordinated the police and intelligence services of the Third Reich, both those of the state and of the Nazi party. At its peak it had over 60,000 employees.

    The RSHA, controlled by Heinrich Himmler, was voracious in its looting and plunder and these tags are a sad reminder of what was going on.....Doug.

    DANIELSWE.....Swedish author Anders Rydell has two best sellers, The Looters and The Book Thieves. I have read The Book Thieves. While it does not specifically mention these tags, it sure does document the extent of looting and plundering. Rydell, among others, was a reference source for the film MONUMENT MEN. I plan to eventually post an item related to this, an item perhaps never discussed on any forum.....Doug
