A late reaction (it's holiday time…)

I don't know a CV nor a SJ (possibly the S I???).

The career of Karl Caspar (1883-1954) as an aeroplane builder began in 1911 with the creation of the "Centrale für Aviatik" in Wandsbek (Hamburg). After a fire it was relocated at Fuhlbüttel (Hamburg) in 1912, and was renamed "Hansa Flugzeugwerke".

At the beginning of WWI Karl Caspar became a military pilot, and the "Hansa Flugzeugwerke" were united with the "Brandenburgische Flugzeugwerke" to become the "Hansa- und Brandenburgische Flugzeugwerke".

After his demobilisation in 1916 Caspar left the firm and founded the "Hanseatische Flugzeugwerke Karl Caspar AG" of HFC in Fuhlsbüttel. He alsa participated in the "Flugzeugwerft Lübeck-Travemünde GmbH".

AIRCRAFT BUILT BY "HANSA FLUGZEUGWERKE"

  • Hansa Taube: a rebuilt Rumpler Taube with Aeolus engine.
    Gotha-Hansa Taube: copies of the Gotha Taube with Daimler Mercedes D I
    Biplane Built in 1913/14. Gnome engine and push propellor. Five seats in a covered nacelle.
The Taubes were used in the HFC flying school.

AIRCRAFT BUILT BY "HANSEATISCHE FLUGZEUGWERKE KARL CASPAR AG"

  • Experimental twin engined fighter (2 x Oberursel), built in 1917/18. During a ground test one of the engines broke loose and killed a technician. The development was stopped.
Other activities of HFC were the reparation of military aircraft, and the license building of Albatros C.III and Friedrichshafen G.III and G.IIIa.

After the war, Caspar closed his HFC, but acquired in December 1918 the "Flugzeugwerft Lübeck-Travemünde GmbH" in Travemünde. Here he created in 1921 together with Ernst Heinkel the "Caspar-Werke AG". Heinkel left the company already in 1922. Some of the aircraft were built in Denmark, due to the restrictions on German aircraft building.

In 1926 the "Caspar-Werke AG" were acquired by the Reichsmarine, and in 1928 the firm was closed. Afterwards the location was occupied by the E-Stelle See.

Sb 3 not SB.3 - the latter was a contemporaneous Akaflieg Braunschweig designation.

Dipl.-Ing. Ernst Ritter von Lössl - also seen written as von Loeßl or Lößl - became Chefkonstruk-teur of Caspar-Werke in 1923, having come from the Technischen Universität München.

The 'Sb' series designations began when von Lössl was at TH München. That series was:

- 1921 Sb 1 Münchener-Eindecker constructed by B.A.Cl.München
-- Sb 1: A high-winged framework training glider, span 11.00 m

- 1922 Sb 2 same layout as Sb 1, Sb 2 airframe constructed by FVA*
-- * FVA = Flugwissenschaftliche Vereinigung Aachen (Aviation Science Ass'n Aachen)

- 1922 Sb 3 (shown in your 3-view) built by Caspar-Werke at Travemünde
-- Took part in the 1922 Rhön glider competition in 1922

The B.A.Cl.München mentioned in connection with the Sb 1 was the contemporary abbreviation for the Bayerischer Aeroclub, München (later referred to as the 'Germanized' Fliegerklub München). It is possible that the 'b' in Sb series designations was for B.A.Cl.München (or just 'Bayerischer') while the 'S' was for Segelflugzeug.
