Original WW2 German Third Reich Bakelite Flag Pole Top.
This pole top measures just about 10 inches tall. It is constructed out of Bakelite and has been coated with a gold finish. .
On the obverse facing is a Roman-like sword pointing upward with an overlapping wreath of oak leaves around the lower section. On the cross guard of the sword is a disk having an immobile swastika in the center.
Written around the border of the swastika are the words Symbol Wird Waffe.
On the reverse the pole top is the same except the center area has an nicely detailed Iron cross complete with serrations, a vaulted center swastika, and the date of 1939. There date then each side cross that bears the date of 1940.
The bottom portion of the pole top is cylindrical with four mounting holes.
This is quite a rare pole top, there are not many originals that survived after the war and most of the originals I have seen are often very badly damaged / broken This example is intact and in very good condition apart from it is cracked / has some damage at the bottom (see photos) probably from when it got removed from the pole as a souvenir to bring back.
Would make a great display item....Read full description
