POLETOPS #39745 Party Political Pole Top
This Party Pole Top is a fine item in nice overall condition. It consists of a nickel Party eagle with open wings and looking to the viewer’s right. The bird clutches a wreathed and pierced mobile swastika in his talons. The swastika has been painted black to afford some contrast.
The bottom area has a screw where it would have been affixed to a mounting cylinder.
An extremely fine item here, and perfect for display.
Excellent Plus. $895.00
POLETOPS #39022 Political Eagle Pole Top
The eagle is open winged and looks to the right. The bird clutches a wreath of oak leaves with a floating, mobile black painted swastika in the center.
Below the swastika is a flared fitting that would have fit into a mounting of some kind. We have mounted this piece on a wooden plaque so it is easy to display.
A nice period eagle pole top here.
POLETOPS #37490 Bakelite Veteran's Pole Top
On the obverse facing is a Roman-like sword pointing upward with an overlapping wreath of oak leaves around the lower section. On the crossguard of the sword is a disk having an immobile swastika in the center. Written around the border of the swastika are the words “Symbol Wird Waffe” or “Symbol Becomes Weapon”. Someone has written “1945” on the blade of the sword, probably a GI.
On the reverse the pole top is the same except the center area has an nicely detailed Iron Cross complete with serrations, a vaulted center swastika, and the date of “1939” on the bottom leg. There is a ribbon device on either side of the iron cross that bears the date of “1940”.
The bottom portion of the pole top is cylindrical with four mounting holes. I understand that this is a very rare pole top; I've seen reproductions of it that were made of metal. There originals were Bakelite and are often broken. This example is all intact and in very good condition.
