    Well, it is marked for the RSHA or Reichssicherheitshauptamt or Reich main security office. Absenderstelle is the word for sender location. I don't know what it is supposed to be - a stamp? Quality makes me think this is fake. NH

    I have absoultley No Idea What this is

    Not sure but the design with the two holes positioned as they are suggest a sealing wire or cord would go through them rather than nails or screws. It also looks to be made of aluminium so not designed to be directly subjected to harsh conditions.

    My guess is that this is a tag for some sort of transit container possibly a sack / bag that requires official indication of closure and is reusable.

    Anybody actually know for sure?



    PS If I am correct I would interpret Absenderstelle as being a "registry" (post room to use modern vernacular) or "despatch" (as in office)
    "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."

    While this is just an opinion, post #5 by Watchdog brings images to mind of burlap bags filled with plundered books and artwork as well as pallets of loot in salt mines....Doug
