    Default Feldpost sign with a twist

    Picked this up the other day, I have not seen anything like this before, The cloth is faded, there is a small rip in the fabric, it does not glow, and it looks as though it has been pinned at the top, maybe inside in a protective plastic cover? If it is a fake I would be stunned, the workmanship is certainly apparent, printed not embroidered..........it hasn't been knocked up in a pakistani workshop, but I think it's so sweet, so I'm keeping it

    I've probably put this in the wrong section, if I have, apologies mods, feel free to correct me

    Very cool!
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    Double sided too!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Thanks for the comments guys, I would love to know if anyone has ever seen anything like this before? My thinking is, as a fake or reproduction it isn't the smartest thing to fake, I mean, it's pretty boring as things go

    Very nice piece, I've never seen one like it before either. Perhaps used for temporary post office during events such as the Nuernberg Rally or other "Party" related mass gatherings events.

    A keeper for sure!

    From my book about signboards, a wartime photograph.
    It is possible one as shown with post 1 is shown here with a crew
    from the "Deutsche Feldpost".
    Note the "sign" at the trailer from the buss is hung between bars!

    When using this photo for the book I thought it could be a wooden
    plate or cardboard, but seeing now this cloth sign, it is very well possible
    it is suchlike. It could be easily hung and taken off from the trailer, rolled
    and stocked away for another occasion!
