    This would be a cast piece, and while 'mass produced', is not widely seen today
    because they were not made in the millions, like Iron Crosses
    and other common awards.

    Much nazi related material was destroyed, burned or buried after the war,
    so unless they were Veteran 'bring-back' items like this one is, almost
    all TR objects would have been illegal in Germany...........

    It is a 'rare' statuette then, I suppose, but really not worth
    thousands - maybe a few hundred, IMO.

    Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. This should be an easy sell given the rarity then.

    I think you are missing the point its not the the rarity of the item that sets the price its design and purpose. For example an knightcross is a pretty commonaward and still it fetches thousands of dollars while more rare awards dont even come close.

    And this piece I can't understand the purpose of even though I like it. Political bookcase piece maybe ?

    My best guess on it's useage, other than just a desk ornament, is for placing paperwork, receipts or such like, on the spike.
