    TR Collector (30+ years), with significant Historical interests, in the: Technische Nothilfe - TN - TeNo - TENO - (Technischen Nothilfe) .... and SCHUMA. I wish to learn more about these TR Organizations; collect representative Items: and share this information with the Collecting & Historical community, at large... It's no fun (and it is certainly not educational) to Collect Items & Information ... to not be able to Share then with like-minded fellow collectors... I will be pleased to share items with fellow collectors and authors, who wish to use them for educational interests of our community... I am also interested in acquiring ANY Items, in these 2 Special Areas of my interests... Txs, dblmed / Dave

  1. Nice photo nesredep as well as quite special period photographic documentation of the Teno / TN activities. The photos & printed documentation / press photos allow us to better understand the interworking of the Teno. Photos & Photodocumentation makes it quite clear that the Teno functioned & served in: a) The Heimat / Greater Germany - usually wearing the classic Dunkelblau / Navy Blue uniform b) The HEER - wearing Heer tunics, with Teno rank tabs & shoulder patches, and with Teno interior stamping. Often with Teno sleeve band as
  2. Gustav Curtse was a very important key member / leader of the TeNo & is a well referenced and recognized TR figure. Congrats on obtaining his special & quite nice ribbon bar as this will certainly be both an historic as well as an important part of your collection. Best, Dave / dblmed
  3. I'd feel comfortable with it in my collection. You've done good basic testing for that time frame. Plus, the material weave is consistent with similar ones in my collection. Usually the fabric is Linen, but it can also rarely be Cotton. You can also compare the stamp with other examples. nice find ! dblmed / Dave
  4. Schuma Führer SD / Sicherheitspolizei Bullion Sleeve Patch The BeVo version [using Aluminum/Silvered wire threads] is the usual patch for the Schuma Führer d. SD which is most often found. A bullion version was also authorized [Deuster, Tafel Sm3 & text] for the ranks of the Schuma Führer d. SD. Attached are 2 examples of this uncommonly found Schuma sleeve patch. [DaveJ's nice example was 1st seen on Post 49 & I've been searching for another since seeing it.] http://www.wehrmacht...t=234390&page=4 Txs, Dave L / dblmed
  5. Schuma (Schutzmannschaften) Officer's M43 Field Cap. Thanks to NickG & Askold! Here is the Schuma Officers M43 Field Cap which the dealer 'stated' came with the previously posted Tunic. What's your opinion of the Cap? …Txs, Dave L / dblmed
  6. With regards to the authenticy of the SCHUMA tunic, Askold Posted: http://www.wehrmacht...907#post4526907 Sorry to say, but this is a put together tunic (oh, big surprise with that dealer.) These tabs were sold on German eBay few months ago. Their construction is a bit shady so I passed on them. Someone bought them, and in few months, they magically turn into a tunic. The problem the dealer made, was putting extra piping around - such combination never existed. I earlier asked about the backing of these tabs in question, as I am not that good with tabs: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com
  7. SCHUMA / Schutzmannschaft Zugführer "Leytenant´s" Combat Tunic # 1 Thanks to Abigor for spotting this quite special tunic! It was recently sold on the website of Peter v Lukacs www.military-antiques-stockholm.com/ Here is what the Dealer has to say about this SCHUMA tunic: "...The tunic is from start a Police field tunic, six button front. Rough police green wool with four patch-style pockets and straight-edge flaps. Breast-pockets have pleats but lower pockets are pleat-less, all in true police-style. Tunic is fully lined in brown drill cloth and have clear size markings wit
  8. TeNo Gemeinschaftsführer Board 1940/43 Here is a nice example of the sewn in type of TeNo Gemeinschaftsführer (Gf.-F.) Shoulder Board, which was officially in effect from mid 1940 – mid 1943. However this Board continued to be worn until kriegsend by the TeNo men who wore the classic Navy-Blue [Dunkelblau] TN uniform. [There were war time supply & distribution problems, and the intended 1943 transition to the TeNo-Police uniform & new ranking configuration, were not available for all of the TeNo members.] The metal "Pip" [in Silver or Gold] - which was used by the TeNo is uni
  9. Hi hucks216 Very, very nice TeNo award document ! Congrats! Not many examples of TeNo documents are found ! The use of the word "TeNo" instead of either T.N. or TN. is quite a bit unusual for an official document. However, the word "TeNo" was occasionally used in pre-TR publications & TR publications. Since the KVK1 award date is so late in the war [March 17, 1945], I would image that it was one of the last ones issued from the TN [TeNo] Ortsgruppe of Sankt Ingbert. It was definitely a "hot" combat area when this award document was issued. Some WWII historical time line informa
  10. TeNo-Police Classic Photo – 1943-1945 - Ranking of Rottwachtmeister d. TN: [Parallelogram shaped "SS-Like" Black Collar Tabs w 2 Narrow Rows of Tresse - & - Shoulder Boards w 1 Wide Tresse Strip at the Base.] Through the keen eyes of a good friend [Txs, DC!], this super photo just came my way. The photo shows all of the Key elements of the June 1, 1943 – Kriegsend TeNo-Police Uniform ensemble: Tunic - Correct Police Tunic;Collar Tabs – Matching Mirrored "SS-Like" TabsShoulder Boards – TN-Police TypeSleeve Eagle – BLACK TeNo-Police EagleRaute – Diamond Shaped TeNo-Pol
  11. OLDUF - What a Super Group of Photos! You really have a great collection of rarely seen TR Organizations in your photo collection. Well done - Thanks for sharing them. ... Best, Dave L / dblmed
  12. RE: Variant SCHUMA Fire Police Shoulder Boards Part of the fun of SCHUMA collecting is finding the unexpected! Just when you think that you "sort of" have the Insignias of this TR organization figured out – something previously unknown pops up. Thanks to a keen eyed friend [Askold Txs!] I was able to add a 'variant' type of SCHUMA Fire Police shoulder board set to the collection. It is a not seen before type for me – but perhaps other collectors have come across it? It's not shown in Dieter Deuster's fine book with the SCHUMA chapter, so it's a bit of a mystery yet. As is Attached Bel
  13. Rank - of SCHUMA Sicherheitspolizei Plain [No Tresse] Black Right Collar Tab I was thinking about John T's nice Schuma tab, so I reviewed Dieter Deuster's "Deutsche Polizei-Uniformen." If you collect Police or TeNo or Schuma – this book is a 'must-have' Reference for your library, although it is written in German only. I've translated the TeNo chapter & part of the Schuma chapter – more to go.] Using Deuster's Tafel SM 4, page 428, as a starting base, I've added some of the SCHUMA Sicherheitspolizei ranking; John's blank tabs & real examples of the 4 shoulder board types.
