    Default Is this an authentic WW2 Danger porcelain sign?

    Hello,

    I recently picked this item up from a military estate sale. Not too familiar with these at all, but I really liked the sign itself. Really dislike the fact the swastika was scratched/heavily carved out by someone at some point. Would love to get some feedback, if anyone knows a little more about it. Thanks in advance, and I appreciate it.

    Not sure how old it is but the scratching on the reverse looks to have been done very recently due to the lack of any rusting in the heavy score marks.

    The stamp on the back does not make any sense and appears to be placed there for pizzaz value. Although not conclusive, I have never seen anything like this in many years of collecting. Further, the design and construction are not like anything I have seen made in the period

    The sign looks almost identical to one at the County barn Noxis weed dept door sign as weed killer is stored there I too don't see any WW2 connection but never say never. timothy

    We've been seeing similar dubious signage coming out of Poland...I agree with Bob, the reverse eagle is an attempt to mislead the buyer into believing it's a period piece...

    There were cloth mine field markers, but I've never seen or heard of a porcelan one.
    I agree that the eagle on the back is completely out of place and makes me think the entire sign is a fake.
    I can't imagine a use for a metal one rather than the cloth flag markers.
