    Yes, sorry for my wording before. I was referring to the Deutsche Reichspost. Is it also a cast style hanger? Mounted on the vehicle
    Or trolley car.

    The loose letters were seperately mounted onto the side of the buss,
    forming the words Deutsche Reichspost (a lot of work);
    the words Deutsche Reichspost in two, is in fact a bar (painted in red)
    upon which the letters are being positioned (moulded in one), and as
    a whole was mounted onto the buss by four spots.

    Years ago an incomplete set of loose letters was available in the USA, as
    was also the bar with indication. Have no idea who did possess them
    and if they are still available! Cannot remember having seen others
    offered!! Some of this material will be shown in a new planned book.

    Here's a link to both items in an old thread on WAF. The bar type was owned at the time by JT at German War Booty.

    Hope this helps.
