    The documents, sorted by date, are:
    • 12 December 1919: Certificate of Saxon citizenship. (In the old Empire, people didn't hold German citizenship, but citizenship in their respective German Kingdom, Grand Duchy etc.) This Imperial-era document has been altered by hand to adapt it to the changed political situation, with "Königreich Sachsen" [Kingdom of Saxony] changed to "Freistaat Sachsen" [Free State of Saxony] and "Königlich Sächsische" [Royal Saxon] crossed out.
    • 31 March 1920: Ex-servicemen's certificate of entitlement for civil service employment. Members of the military with a certain minimum time in service were entitled to employment in the civil service following their discharge. Schmidt was a former Vizefeldwebel of the 2. Königlich-Sächsisches Jäger-Bataillon No. 13 [2nd Royal Saxon Jäger Battalion No. 13], which was disbanded in 1919. He had served in the military for 10 years and 171 days.
    • 10 Sept. 1926: Promotion certificate from Zolldiätar to Zollassistent
    • 16 May 1934: Promotion certificate from Zollassistent to Zollsekretär
    • 22 January 1935: Award certificate for the 1914/18 Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer [Honor Cross for Combatants]
    • 2 July 1936: Promotion certificate from Zollsekretär to Zollinspektor
    • 23 July 1938: Award certificate for the Silbernes Treudienst-Ehrenzeichen [Silver Faithful Service Decoration, i.e. the long service award for 25 years in the civil service. Previous military service was recognized, so Schmidt instantly qualified for this award when it was instituted on 30 January 1938.]
    • 19 Sept. 1939: Award certificate for the Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938 [Commemorative Medal for 1 October 1938, i.e. the Sudetenland annexation], signed by Otto Meissner.
    That's brilliant. Thanks for taking the time to do that for me.

    cheers, del.

        Here is a photo from an album that I bought a while ago. It is a continuation of the recent posts. It is the Zollgrenzschutz in France early on...

              Alain,
              Very nice RFV marked combat bayonet! The dress bayonets are relatively common but not so with the combat bayonet. Is it numbered to the scabbard? Thank you for sharing!

                Hi Kripo
                The K98 bayonet is matching.

                    Alain,

                    Thank you for the additional photos as they are much appreciated! Beautiful bayonet. I still don’t have one in my collection....collecting has been very slow these days.

                    Chrischa,

                    Thank you also for the photos! These Zoll photos are just very uncommon and subsequently hard to come by. Every one of these are special IMO. If you have more please do show us!

                    Best,

                      Kripo,

                      I thought I would post a Zollschutz (Customs) uniform on your very nicely focused thread. This is a Kleiner Rock, also referred to as a Joppe, double breasted Zollbeamte (Reichsfinanzverwaltung) uniform that was worn from the time of the Weimar Republic into the early NS Zeit. The tunic is double breasted green wool with lower slit pockets, French cuffs, and hochrot (deep red) piping. The collar tabs are black with hochrot piping and the tunic has plain polished gilt Assmann buttons throughout. These collar tabs remained the same for various RFV ranks and the shoulder boards are the standard Zoll style with green/silver thread and gilt ciphers and rank pips although there were earlier ones with eagles. This particular tunic has a Koln tailor label in the neck and a removable white collar liner is still present. The straight leg trousers were blue/black with hochrot piping on the legs.

                      I don't think there is an example of this uniform on your thread so I hope this is helpful.

                        Here is a period uniform plate of this Joppe from "Uniformenfibel", Offene Worte, Berlin, 1933. Notice that it also indicates the Wasserzoll tunic is blue instead of green.

                          Thank you for your excellent and informative posts! I really admire that Joppe! Judging by your past posts, it must be one of several of your pinnacles in your collection!

                            Here is a little grouping that I had forgotten that I had.

                            It contains separate Ancestry records for him and his wife. It also has a booklet containing the details of their 3 children. This particular booklet has space for 12 childrens names so I wonder if this was the proof required to get a Mothers Cross.

                            There are 3 Third Reich period Zoll certificates including the Customs cross and KvK2 with swords.

                            Finally, a certificate dated 1953 which shows this chap continued his employment after the war

                              Thanks for the kudos. I found a couple of more uniform plates for this double breasted uniform that I will post. Notice the plate with two men shows both the double breasted tunic as well as the single breasted tunic in wear at the same time. This single breasted tunic with concealed buttons evolved into the same tunic with visible buttons. These single breasted tunics were worn into the wear-out period for the normally seen tunics with a dark collar and Zollschutz cuff band.

                                You keep swinging home runs here! The rank chart is a total right clicker! Thank you again for the great material! It’s very nice to see this pre war material that transitioned into the early NS period. This doesn’t really get a lot of coverage and you’ve presented it perfectly. Thank you.
