    Based on what evidence? I have read thousands of documents from the RZM and Verwaltungsamtes-SS in the course of researching SS insignia and it is curious that the extremely strict protocols and rules that are contained in them go flying out the window - especially when it comes to questionable items.
    Based on several conversations I had with people who were in Himmler's inner circle and also family, including those he visited very often in Graz and 2 bills from the tailor in Graz. Himmler is Himmler and the rest is the rest. You are surely right, every normal soldier, officer or general with a few exceptions, who did it exactly like Himmler, got his stuff the way it is written in the documents you have read, only not Himmler, at least in this case it is provable.

      I thought that too, but if you turned the tabs around by 90 degrees they fit the box well, leaving room for the RZM Tag, can not see any attaching thread on the tabs or seal. Can not imagine the seal just freely floating in the box.. or the seal has just been added (based on the picture Previously attached)
      but as stated before.. why would the paper tag be missing if un issued..

            What’s with the fuzzy ink stamp on the document? Would expect nice crisp image on a high level piece.

                There are more excuses for the authenticity of Herr Weitze's items than for farts in an elevator.

                    Not my area but the stamp level quality is for me just funny.
                    The whole story is funny.
