  • NEED HELP: Speer Strasse Street Sign

    Hi. I'm a long-time collector (50+ years), but my expertise does not include German street signs. I have normally avoided street signs, due to the negative publicity regarding the repros out there. However, I took a chance on this one, which came from a well-known collector & dealer. I haven't committed to it yet, so here I am. I will include numerous photos. The dimensions are 27 3/4" x 7 3/4" (approximately).
    On the Plus side: 1) The white enamel is very thick (thicker than I have previously seen on these); 2) The sign is heavy, made out of fairly thick steel; 3) I have seen many Hitler & Goering street signs, but never a Speer sign.
    On the Negative side: 1) I do not recognize the German font/script (it appears to be a combination of Textualis/Textura and Fraktur, but not exact on either; 2) The lengthy history of reproduced street signs makes me uncomfortable regarding ANY enamel signs....
    Opinions on this one would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
    Here are some photos (quite a few):

      ....a trap. It has nothing to do with Albert Speer.
      There are several Speerstraßen in Swizerland and Germany In Swizerland it means a mountain, in Germany are several well known persons with this name ans maybe that some towns honored them with a street name, which is not unusual
