    It's an nsdap meeting sign, it lets you know where a speaker from the party will be having a speech so you could go and hear them and ask questions from party representatives.

    These signs were posted either on the outside or indoors at NSDAP party buildings - it reflected times etc when one could talk to a particular official - most found today are as posted in the first picture, metal/enamel for outdoor use - I posted one that was used indoors made of wood these are harder to find.
    The one posted looks like it was really abused-

    thanks ..thats just a random photo i found

    are they known to be faked at all ? any tips for looking at them , easy to tell if outdoor one are enamel vs paint as most will have chips , assume theyre pretty heavy metal?

    would there be any markings on the rear?

    Steve - Yes both types have markings on the rear, the metal ones usually have maker marks the wooden one care instructions as I posted.
    The metal ones are somewhat heavy and usually the markings are missing due to care/condition such as the one you posted. I don't think these have been reproduced as of yet.

    I would pass and look for a cleaner one - but as it stands I wouldn't pay more than $50-$75 for the one shown with all that damage.

    Yes, they are period 1933 - 1945. - A nice one would sell for $300 - $400
