Original German WWII DAF Labor Front Aluminum Wall Sign - Deutsche Arbeitsfront

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The DAF (Deutsche Arbeitsfront or German Labor Front) was a National Socialist trade union that supplanted independent unions once the NSDAPs had come to power in Germany. This 20 cm (7.87 inch) round Aluminum Wall Sign would most likely have been mounted outside DAF offices. The reverse is unmarked but we are confident that it is 100% period authentic. These could be attached to the wall in any number of ways, and there are no holes drilled in this example, so we assume it was possibly sewn to a flat or suspended on small hooks / nails.

Overall condition is very good, showing only light wear from storage and age. There is some oxidation on the aluminum, which has formed "tracks" as often seen on he metal. There are no dents or major damage, and this would make a great addition to any collection.

With the dissolution of all Free Trade Unions in Germany in May 1933 the Deutsche Arbeitsfront, (German Labor Front), was established to replace the unions and to educate the workers in industry and commerce for smooth and efficient operation of all labor in the Third Reich. In October 1934 the DAF was given official status as a sub-section of the NSDAP and in March 1936 it was recognized as an independent NSDAP affiliated association and granted control of its own monetary budget. With this money it was able to procure its own signs and other insignia.
