English term or phrase:German State / State
The following is from a text on daggers from Germany (ca. 1935 - 40) and talks about "The Punzierungs Mark":
"The Crown emblem indicates the German State in which the piece was assayed, and the style of the Crown can vary accoring to the particular State. The image should be well formed (...)".
If the first term "German State" means "Deutsches Reich", what does the second "State" refer to? Whilst we are talking about "Bundesländer" today, what was the equivalent during that period? Alternatively, other suggestions welcome.
