Default RF nr?

Is it normal to see RFnr instead of RBnr stamped into equipment? Never seen it before.

Yes, some producers stamped their goods with RFNr instead of RBNr.
Why this happened I can't say for sure.
I guess that at one point both terms Reichsfirmennummer and Reichsbetriebsnummer ofiicially or inofficially have been used for the German numbering system.
Some companies choose to use the term RFNr. for their stamps.

Searching Zeltbahn marked with R.B.Nr. 0/0350/0249 and Bakelite buttons.
