the secret of small red stamp

Article about: .... they are found on the approval, or letter that took place between the manufacturer and the Reichszeugmeisterei. There are the hallmarks of the auditor of the RZM! Annoyed from this ads?

    So as to avoid boring everyone to tears, I'll keep the explanation as brief as possible.

    Basically, a tax is raised without an immediate return in one's investment in the state, whereas a Gebühr is a public fee that is to be paid for a specific administrative act, service or privilege.

    For example, the property tax I pay as a homeowner is a Steuer, while the fees I pay for waste disposal, street cleaning etc. are Gebühren.
    Thank you, Andreas, for always putting things into a better perspective for us.

    Thank you, FB. I wasn't sure if the small red stamp pertained solely to manufacturers and served as a bit of a quality control measure for their end products. It makes sense that a certain level of expectation was set for all parties involved with the RZM and auditors enforced this. This license, along with some rare primary sources including some relating to the RZM plate below, were kindly made available to me by a gentleman collector who has my sincerest thanks. I am extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to add these to my collection.

    See passage in post Numero IX, as to the how the Betriebspruefer examined if the shop or firm or craftsman adhered to the regulations of the RZM, which are in the license and also well described in the Mitteilungsblaetter.

    Exactly, the ( Betriebsprüfer ) auditor controlled only strict compliance with the regulations issued by the Reichszeugmeisterei.

    The small red stamp might therefore appear anywhere (on paper)!
