    Interesting peice. Hope it pans out. I'm sure I've seen some period items with "Germany" on them. Then again they were on dealer sites so no idea if they were authentic.

    What ?.... round things !......"Germany" simply means it was/could be, for the export market....it will be a "Generic" base, that the maker will fit a variety of emblems to, this one just happens to have a "RAD" symbol on it, (and yes I am aware It probably was not exported with this symbol on it ! )....IMO perfectly period 1933-45.
    Prost ! Steve.
