Why would the Reichsbahn use such a huge and elaborate property marking for a piece of equipment? Why would they add the NSDAP party badge design on the other side? Why would it be misspelled?
Unfortunately, the answer is simple:
This is a nice old piece which somebody has ruined by adding bogus "Nazi" markings to increase the selling price.
Yeah unfortunately that's what I thought, what an odd piece to create! The only reasoning i'd imagine was I knew that the Reichsbahn used commercial equipment and was a state-run railway... Oh well It's not anything I purchased, nor anything I believed in being genuine... Also for size reference this whole piece can fit into the palm of your hand, it's pretty confusing that you could go through the effort to create fake stamping and then spell it incorrectly!
As HPL2008 says. I agree with all of it.
And what has the NSDAP to do with the Deutsche Reichsbahn?
If someone would actually sanction such an item it would have
been through the Reichsbahn-Zentralamt (RZA), I think!
If the Reichsbahn "emblem" is positioned right, why is then the
NSDAP "emblem" upside down?
I think all is bogus!

"Wir sollen auch unser Leben für die Brüder lassen" (1.Joh.3.16):

I don't even know if I would say that the item itself is real. It looks to be a totally faked piece.
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Believe me, that happens all the time.
Ok thanks guys, I know nothing about the Reichsbahn or monoculars so cheers!... To the dump then!
