You offer on a mega rare document ! It is an original "linen" stationery with following letterhead "Governor Colonel General Göring - Commissioner of the four years plan - The Chief of office for German resources and raw materials"
Chief of office was Fritz Löb who hand signed this offered document. Fritz Löb was one of those authorities who processed the four years plan. This German resources office was the most important office of the four years plan, so the "core". Löb was responsible for planning and manufacturing of German goods as well as coordination and transporting of goods which were manufactured abroad. His office was also responsible to research the development of the German oil economy. His department worked close together with the I.G.
