Has anyone ever seen a plaque like this before?

Article about: Another of my auction finds. The so called "military expert" auctioneer said it was from a beer hall. But he is often wrong. I was just curious if any of you have any idea what it

    Another of my auction finds. The so called "military expert" auctioneer said it was from a beer hall. But he is often wrong.
    I was just curious if any of you have any idea what it was for or from?
    Thanks

    In any case, there's a Kriegsmarine (navy) connection. The abbreviation Krf.Ob.Mt. next to the men's names stands for Kraftfahrobermaat, i.e. a petty officer rank of the motor vehicle drivers' specialty.

    The coat-of-arms is that for the Hessian city of Frankfurt am Main, whose name appears below.

    Odd, what size is it? The eagle appears to be a late war Heer cap eagle with edge tab fixing. I wonder if this has been cobbled together from a few different items, Frankfurt plaque, Heer cap eagle and Naval paper work item.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    That's what I am thinking too. Leon.

    It is about 6 x 6 inches. I figured the cap eagle was added.
