    Hallo Freunde

    I have got this rather large piece of a DAF- emblem.
    Of course its quite damaged, but it is still a nice collectable for my taste.
    It has no pins on the back, neither does it have rivets or holes for screws or nails.
    Any idea what it is - or could have been?
    Greetings from Mexico

    DAF ( Deutches Arbeitfront ) not RAD.. Probably a flag pole top or other accoutrement... G

    DAF aluminum shield which was usually used as a desk ornament - it has a screw base as seen in this picture. Usually these are broken off and one can hang the shield on the wall - its only one sided hollow on the rear.

    With the info that i got i searched further about this item, and found some complete ones.
    I want to share the results here, for in case of future reference.

    Some have a screw / pin, while others do not and are supposedly intended as to be hung on the wall ( "Wandhänger")

    Unfortunately i could not find info about its true use, or period pics that show the item.
    Also there was no mention about being a desk ornament, even thou i consider this possibility, or being a flag-pole, quite reasonable.
    There is also a mention that i might have been a "decoration" in Deutsche Arbeitsfront- Betriebe, maybe on, or behind the ArbeitsfĂĽhrers desk..

    Anyway, here are some pics of this particular emblem, with and without screw.

    There have been a few posted here in the past. You would likely have found them if you searched in the right section of the forum.
