German term or phrase:Patentiert von 1.1.1942 an
This comes from a patent from the Reichspatentamt.
The entire phrase is
Patientiert im Deutschen Reich vom 30. Mai 1942 an.
What I want to know is whether this is an old form of "ab." I have seen the phrase using 'ab' but never "von...an." Does it have the same meaning?
