Impressive, what is provided here to Matereial at disposal, Thank you.
In my eyes there are real treasures and show in their simplicity, such as the complex RZM really was.

some RZM and Kleiderkasse documents and the RZM Bible.
Can someone post Hugo Rietzels website ?
yes, the RZM Bible ..... a book with a lot of knowledge
My site is already linked here. In a post from F.B.
( But it should not be the focus of the topic! )

here is a late war piece , for the SS music school Braunschweig , perhaps the last pattern before it all ended ?
See post number 14.
Thank you. Wonderful image. I have a copy of it, and it is quite revealing. The thing has now been digitalized, so that everyone can own one, which will doubtless cause much mischief, but that's life.

Thank you for your fine site. It is a real improvement on the state of knowledge, which is really deficient save for Clyde Davis' book of decades ago.

My thanks to all who have contributed to this thread and to the further understanding of the RZM system.
Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Kommunist.
Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
Als sie die Juden holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Jude.
Als sie mich holten, gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte.
The most revealing insight into the RZM is through the Mitteilungsblaetter, even though some savants doubt what was is written there for reasons I cannot fathom.
The years 1934 and 1935 are generally at hand, and they are very interesting.
I have made an effort to extract some useful things from said source.
Wim Saris has deepened himself fully in this source, and his books reflect this magisterial research.
A familiarity with Nazi economic policy is also helpful to understand these things.
The reality of the Proben, of course, is that they embodied a Platonic ideal in a bureaucracy, whereby
variations within the norm comprised reality.
These variations of the norm within the norm differ often too much for the cognitive dissonance of collectors, who are desperate for some quick fix to manage the problem of fakes.
The answer, however, is contained in Mr. Rietzel marvelous site, with many actual examples of pieces of how the system work.
You should use his evidence together with what we have here to fashion an understanding of the whole.
The Uniformen Markt articles are also good, as they also explain the dynamics of how things actually worked.
Mr. D'Alquen has also read all the relevant VA SS, RFSS, and W u V HA files in which these things are also analyzed.
