Original German WWII NSRL National Socialist Sports Association Aluminum Flag Pole Finial
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice WWII German National Socialist League of the Reich for Physical Exercise (Nationalsozialistischer Reichsbund für Leibesübungen - NSRL) Aluminum Flag Pole Finial or Topper (Fahnenstange Endstück).
The NSRL logo is a rectangular Reichsadler (State Eagle), which has a canted Swas (Swas) in the middle. This is surrounded by a spade shaped design for the pole top. The finial is made of cast aluminum, and screws into a plated zinc pole end-socket. There is a round aluminum spacer that goes between them.
The finial measures 10 1/4 inches tall, and is 4 1/8 inches across at the widest point. There is some slight oxidation and wear, but it has a great aged aluminum patina. These Flag Pole Finials are extremely hard to find, as most were destroyed or melted back down as scrap. This is one in very nice condition, ready to add to any collection!
The National Socialist League of the Reich for Physical Exercise (German: Nationalsozialistischer Reichsbund für Leibesübungen, abbreviated NSRL), was the umbrella organization for sports and physical education in NSDAP Germany. The NSRL was known as the German League of the Reich for Physical Exercise (German: Deutscher Reichsbund für Leibesübungen, abbreviated DRL) until 1938. The organization was expanded to Austria after that country's annexation by NSDAP Germany.
The NSRL was led by the Reichssportführer, who after 1934 was at the same time presiding over the German National Olympic Committee. The NSRL's leaders were Hans von Tschammer und Osten (1933–1943), Arno Breitmeyer (1943–1944) and Karl Ritter von Halt (1944–1945).
