    Hello, I came across this Nazi fan/propeller/cooking stove looking thing. I was wondering if anybody has any idea what it is or what it was used for? There is an inscription on the reverse, but I'm still waiting for a photo to be emailed to me. Thanks for any help at all.


    Regards,

    Corey

    It looks like a pretty elaborate piece, I'm now thinking it may be a steering wheel from a car?

    The propeller looking thing is just a guess, but maybe a wheel hub spinner from a vehicle? What does the back look like?

    Hello Ray, thanks for replying. You are exactly right, I ended up passing on the hub because I was not sure if it was original TR or post war. Plus it wouldn't have fit on my car.

    The inscription on the reverse: "WHEEL CORP. OF AMERICA"

    regards, Corey

    Hmm...I'd say that kind of settles the mystery...

    The eagle 'logo' is from ( or copied from ) a Heer Officer's belt buckle.........!

    I'd say a GI returned home and had four belt buckles and slapped them on his hotrod. The other items are a shield from a pith helmet (heer) and a cap eagle. IMO

    The center piece is a NSDAP political leader belt buckle. Whatever it is mounted on is a postwar modification.

    The belt buckle turns into a wheel cover...maybe the Nazi's were building a Transformer?
