Condition: Very Good
Product Description: This is an impressive Kyffhäuser Bund Veterans Pole TopKyffhäuser. It probably once topped a standard flown by a group of WWI veterans. This piece is made of solid brass. The central motif is a representation of a 1914 pattern Iron Cross, superimposed on a large Nazi swastika emblem. Above this is the war memorial organizational emblem of the Kyffhäuserbund. This emblem dates this piece to no later than 1938. The surface of this one has a wonderful, rich, deep patina. The recesses of the design have toned dark, giving this piece an attractive look and a unique character. It’s obviously used- the tip is slightly bent, and the piece shows wear, with some dings here and there. It remains complete, with no breaks or major damage. The threaded steel rod at the base that once affixed this to a flag pole is still intact. This Kyffhäuser Bund Veterans Pole Top is uncleaned, all-original, and remains 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.
