Product Description: This is an impressive example of a rare, early brass NSDAP flag pole top. The piece is made entirely out of solid brass. There is a brass sleeve, into which the flag pole would be inserted; this is topped by a round brass finial. Soldered to this finial is a large round disk that encloses a large mobile swastika emblem, giving this a bold appearance. The brass surface has a very pleasant, old, even patina. It’s uncleaned, and as found. There are a few minor spots and surface scratches, but no dents or major damage of any kind. This probably dates to the early 1930s, or even earlier, and could be a relic of the Nazi struggle to power before 1933. This brass NSDAP pole top is an evocative artifact with a great look, and is in excellent condition.
Historical Description: Virtually all of the myriad military, civil, political and paramilitary uniformed organizations in existence during the Third Reich had their own flags and standards as part of their organizational regalia. The flags were carried in parades and rallies. In addition to the special flags, most organizations had special pole tops specific to that group, to further distinguish their unique standards. The pole tops often bore either National eagles, organizational emblems, or typical Third Reich patriotic motifs. The emblem would be atop a sleeve into which the flag pole (generally a wood pole with a black finish) would fit. These were designed to be visually impressive pieces of regalia, and, are often very eye-catching. Most Third Reich pole tops did not survive the war or its aftermath.
