Default Model 29 Glockenspiel Top for Review

Here is a recent find and thanks to OFW, these are non-rzm. These have been faked but this one looks good. Any and all comments welcome. Here's a link from a past post for reference:

Thank you in advance.

Looks like a M-29 with added
swastika & bogus RZM stamp.

I agree with OFW: The bird may be from the early period but that would certainly be pre-RZM, and the swastika has been added as an afterthought; it's mounted crookedly and is too big for the wreath. The finish was probably applied to give the piece a look of unification.

I think OFW & Br James are spot on,


Certainly Not a Model 29 Glockenspiel eagle but is an Early Pole Topper (type 1 or 2 ~ M27 or M29 take your pick) but agree with replaced swaz -I've only seen thin swaz arms on these ones and should have no RZM markings. Photo's from Leni's little movie 'Triumph of the Will':

Cheers,
Michael

Thanks for your response, Michael, and the topper you show in your last note is simply spectacular!

With further reference to the piece which began this thread on the Political Forum, one can see where the original swastika was removed from the wreath -- there are clear areas of depression where the arms of the original swaz were cut away from the wreath, as seen on the right and the left side.

Exactly my point, Mike, and you can see this on the right side of the piece, as well.
