    NSKK Traffic Paddle - Opinions Please

    Reposting in this forum; no responses in Political:

    Hi all,
    I have an interesting recent pickup. It would appear to be an original feldgendarmerie type folding packable traffic paddle, with an NSKK decal applied.

    I'm not sure if the decal is period or postwar. It is old and thick and doesn't look too recently modern, but I don't have much experience with decals. The decal is severed in the middle to allow folding.

    Measures 50 cm total length and the circle diameter is 20 cm. What looks like a different lighter layer of paint in the pics is actually the original paint but where some type of film has peeled away (thin plastic-like; reflective coating maybe?; I don't think it's lacquer). I think the decal was originally under that outer layer also, although it's hard to tell.

    Anyway - opinions appreciated!

    Thanks, Justin

      Not the regular NSKK traffic paddle but IMO seems legit.

      It look like a good folding traffic paddle with a NSKK decal applied on it.

        I would not have any confidence in the shown paddle. It differs in all aspects from orginals. The NSKK had at least two different forms, but the shown one is far from its design!
        The method of manufacturing is not seen with any of the TR types of paddles.

            Its textbook Wehrmacht construction. Its a foldable signals disk.
            When the label was added, is another story.
