Product Description: Original DAF pole top used for flags and standards of the Deutsche Arbeitsfront, the National Socialist trade union organization. This is a second pattern pole top- the first pattern was slightly smaller. It’s made of cast aluminum. The pole socket is manufacturer marked with the RZM logo and “M3/34,” a maker who also made other types of Third Reich pole tops. This DAF pole top has a very striking design with a large swastika within a toothed wheel, the emblem of the DAF. It appears to be complete and is in good condition overall, it does have several fairly deep scratches on one side. This original pole top has been mounted on a modern marble base for display. This marble base can easily be removed if desired. An impressive item.


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.
