No mention of restriction in participation (such that only members of Deutscher
Schachbund could participate) has been found.
76 sets comprising 180 problems were received.
68 problems were found to be faulty in some respect, and were returned
to their authors for voluntary withdrawal or correction/replacement. (Correction
or replacement required payment of a fee, as specified in the announcement.)
A type of fault not mentioned by the announcement concerned illegal
positions. The judges considered problems showing illegal positions to be faulty
and requested the respective author(s) to correct.
In all, 122 problems were judged to be correct, and eligible to compete for
the tourney awards. (All of these problems were published in the tourney book.)
One of the published problems (tourney book, sect. B, p. 48, prb. 32 by R. Suchier)
turns out to be the same as a problem in the disqualified set Suum cuique
from the British Chess Association, 1873 tourney, and published after the
tourney in Deutsche Schachzeitung 28/9 (Sep., 1873), p. 275, prb. 3583.
This may reveal the identity behind the Suum cuique set from 1873.
At the same time, it is difficult to understand why an already
published problem was sent as an original (perhaps a mistake by the author?), and perhaps also how it passed the
examination of the judges.
