NEW  DEFINITIONS / IDENTIFICATIONS
The   H A M A N N - M A N U S   Serie  was  produced  in  1925 - 1959
=====================================================================
In the beginnng of the production ( 1925... ) a  MODEL-IDENTIFICATION
(as "A", "B"  & "C")  was given  beside the  serial number.  But with
launching the "C" VERSION  with a  HIGHER BASE,  the  letter of model
identification was dropped.

The  "Collector Community"  established an  (old) IDENTIFICATION LIST
( with ..."D", "E","F"  & "R" )  to discriminate the evolved  models.
For model "D" was only  O N E  PICTURE (without source) available and
an open range of serial numbers between the known "C"/"E" models.

As I found my own MANUS (old)"E",  I narrowed the open range more and
( as a joke ), I made in Sept.2008 for the BBST-Meeting in Berlin the

                     Model »D« Experiment

out of my models "C" & "E" to proof that »D« may be a  P H A N T O M:
The  Result  of  RESTORATION / COMBINATION  of  2  defect  machines !

Now the "Collector Community" / the "Hamann-MANUS Experts"  agreed in
dropping the old definition »D« and published ( in HBw-Aktuell 2011 )
the NEW DEFINITIONS / IDENTIFICATIONS LIST ...



With new definitions:

   o   "new-C" splits into  "C1" & "C2"  and
   o   "new-D" covers parts of the "old-E" definition.

My  "old-C"  is now a  »C2«   and   my  "old-E"  is now a  »D«  ...
