E 53 was designed by Telefunken as part of Luftwaffe contract for four receivers (E 51, E 52, E 53, E 54) all similar in appearance, to cover all the usable frequency spectrum up to 120 MHz. 

E 51 "Leipzig" was a double-conversion superhet covering Long and Middle waves. But Wehrmacht already had enough receivers for frequencies below 1.5 MHz. This is why only E 52 "Köln" and E 53 "Ulm" were approved for service. E 54 "Kulm" has never seen production because WW II was over.
