    Post your RBNr AND maker's name and address!

    Hi all,
    I think that instead of diluting "vital" info about RBNrs in this or that thread we should start one on which to post RBNrs wich appear on a certain item along with a Maker's name and/or address!

                    Great items but please tell me about the boots. Do both RB. Nr belongs to the same pair of boots? Where one number is stamped on the soles and the other somewhere else! So could it be likely that the Mercedes boot actually was made by parts surplied by other makers with different RB. Nr.? So that left us with the question what number do then belongs to the Mercedes boot company?? And where is that located! Berlin??

                            Hi Kim,
                            I think I haven't fully got your question but you've hit the nail on the head with part of it...and that's a very important point,namely subcontractors!!!
                            No...to be perfectly honest I wouldn't bet a €4 bill on subcontractors when it comes to footwear,for I'm rather confident(not to say 'sure';never say never, as trhe saying goes!)that such a think wasn't as widespread as it was with Planes,Tanks and Weapons!
                            In my humble opinion it's just a case of "first in,last out",i.e. newly made,RBNred shafts and vamps mated to soles produced earlier...it often happened with vehicles,for instance,where later types of tanks were fitted with small components found on earlier marks!
                            What's more interesting in this case is that I've noticed that the second part of the RBNr. found on many pairs of shoes is 7something!Here you go the RBNr. ink stamped on a pair of late-war M44 schnuhrschuhe!
                            FWIW

                              Once more thanks for your reply you know when two numbers etc. are found on an item like a boot! It makes me wonder and thinking my understanding about the whole system was simply that one RB. Nr = One Maker. Easy!! But

                              Two RB. Numbers or more on the same piece would indicate the use of subcontractores; all thru I believe the boot as final assemblyed and made at one place/maker but the whole essence here was trying to solve "who is who" out of the numbers. It looks like we as usual only got a blurred picture of the truth.
