    So apparently I'm addicted to trying to nug out steel mills? Anyway 'SilesiaStahl' is tough. I'm still thinking it's a 'trade name' for a type of alloyed barrel steel. Naming barrel steels was a common marketing ploy in the pre and inter-war years. Here's another thing to ponder based on this mechanical calendar. It certainly appears to me the corporate name is small under the banner.

    I also found this I wonder if anyone can help with ID? Are these a locally awarded badge for service guarding the SilesiaStahl Werke? Sure seems like it to me. 4" x 6". Wall hangers? From warrelics.eu

    Silesia is the latin name of Schlesien and Silesiastahl is the trade name of the ironworks company.

    "Im Glauben an Deutschland werden wir das Schicksal meistern - In faith in Germany we will master destiny" is a saying by Adolf Hitler and it was used as the weekly quotation of the NSDAP from 2 - 8.July 1939. Unfortunately the size isn't mentioned in the thread and you could think it's a wall hanger. I think it could be a commemorative plate, as example the workers who build the Reichskanzlei (Reich Chancellery) got a similar plate in a presentation box. It could be a commemorative plate to factory workers who has been drafted for military service.

    Regards,
    Stephan

    Thanks, similar to say 'sheetrock' which is USG trade name for the product line and trade mark for gypsum wall board? I had a feeling that was their high grade steel like the earlier StyrianStahl which was a popular blade quality steel.

    Later he says they're 4" x 6" so definitely a wall hanger commemorative plate.

    There's nothing wrong to know who did the steel lots or the steel mills for barrel production. I think it can be an interesting study heavy mech. As of now I've been studying Gustloff production barrels lately. That manufacturer seems to be the most interesting when it comes to barrels. I would love to find a bcd with a Dutch made barrel one day but those are quite rare and sought-after by collectors. I do hope to add a late made Gustloff k98k rifle with the mg-15 barrel as well.

    It's funny that's kind of what started it. As you know there's a fair amount of info about many of the Gustloff suppliers and their former lines of business in period trade papers and periodicals. As you work into the more obscure steel suppliers there is less information to be had. I really liked the look of that mechanical calendar and things like that fuel my interest.
