    This is what I found:
    stylized hammer, oak leaf and acorn of the Organization Todt, headed by Reichsminister Fritz Todt

    Has anyone else seen this symbol before? I can't say I've come across it and it's not one I've seen in relation to the Todt Org.......?

    I also have never seen this iconography associated with Organisation Todt. It seems our friend Snyder's site is the only place it is mentioned as far as I could tell after a quick google search.

    On this page German Militaria Specialty Items is showed a plaque that is supposed to have belonged to Albert Speer (right..) and on the right side of this plaque is the symbol on the item in question displayed. It is called "Reichsminister Albert Speer High Leader Silver Wall Plaque". I have not found anything like this...

    I don't want to sound smug, but identifications of items on that site should better be ignored altogether or at least presumed incorrect until proven otherwise.

    This logo does not have the slightest connection to the Org. Todt; it is the Handwerkszeichen. It is simply the symbol for the entire German Handwerk (craft), used as its official symbol from 1934 to 1994, and still used unofficially today.

    You are of course absolutely correct regarding Snyder's site. I was trying to make a point, namely that I couldn't find it (this symbol as connected to OT) ANYWHERE else. The only thing that site is good for is amusement IMO. Thank you however for your info on this symbol and where it really originates from
