Quote from: Figleaf on February 03, 2022, 11:01:27 PMThis design was rejected by Adolf's Reichskommissar for the Netherlands, an Austrian by the name of Seyss-Inquart. He wrote the symbol was not Germanic but "Kitsch" (despicable fake). A boatload had already been struck and almost all were re-melted. Apparently the Reichskommissar had little use for reading and writing. Later in the year, a stamp with the same symbol was issued without a comment from Seyss-Inquart. A dictator's henchman's folly.Peter
