    I have added this post to the thread in question:

    I have bought numerous examples of this DAF cog wheel whatever it is directly from the hands of veterans as far back as the early 1960's. That is not to say that as evidenced by our compatriate from Switzerland that they were not copied and sold in the 1970's. for me, it was an odd thing to fake at the time as there was little interest in daf material. They were likely made as the large swastika would have buffon appeal to individuals who were not serious collectors. There are period original examples and fakes of this piece. i have never heard a plausible reason for their purpose.

    Possibly a table medal? Also, yes it's Duetsche Abrbeiters Front. As opposed to Reiches Arbeiters Dienst.

    No way that is a table medal at that size.
