A single wartime drawing, document, whatever...
I've just encountered information, the 509 was given birth in the 1970s by a certain book author angry that another authors just copied information from books or articles, without any archive research. And so his freshly invented story on the 509 was quickly multiplied in other publications...

There was definitely an Me 409 (what would become the Me 155) and an Me 609 (test-ready Me 262) but I've never seen a single mention of an Me 509 anywhere in period documents. It's not impossible that it briefly existed but it seems doubtful.
