Original metal sign once attached to a Waffen-SS recruiting office: ‘This building is under the administration of the recruiting center Warthe XX of the Waffen-SS, Posen’, the last word is illegible due to paint loss in the lower right corner. Heavy iron sign, 15.75 x 23.75 inches, yellowing white paint (flaking), black painted lettering and black border. Mounting holes in each of the four corners. Minor surface rust. The back of the sign is plain black with some surface rust. The province of Posen was a province of Prussia until 1920. During the occupation of Poland, Germany made part of it Reichsgau Wartheland with Posen as the capital. Very good.
