This piece appears to be a 2nd Issue PL topper, made by the firm of Gebrüder Cosack of Neheim, produced in 1938 -- a firm which made thousands of toppers for various NSDAP organizations. This topper was made of aluminum, and I can see no reason why the visible condition should be so poor, given that aluminum doesn't rust. Does this piece really just need to be given a nice bath in soapy water...or is more going on here than we can see? And the second question, for hunmilitaria, is: If you are thinking of buying this piece for your collection, how long will you be satisfied with it as-is? These 2nd Issue PL toppers are widely available in our hobby and are normally found in fine condition, so if you buy this one and then want to upgrade it in the future, who will you sell this one to? Condition should always be a major concern when considering adding an artifact to our collections...IMHO, of course!

Cheers,

Br. James

As the others stated, it's an original topper & it's a shame that it's in that condition.
