Offered for sale is one of only two ever existing street signs from the Reichsstrasse 2 (today Bundesstrasse 2), with a length of 845 km the longest Bundestrasse in Germany which was even longer in the 1930's until 1945 b.ecause it stretched all teh way to the Baltic Sea in what is Poland today. The street numbering system was changed in 1934 in Nazi Germany, so this sign was in use from 1934 to 1945 (perhaps longer because it does not bear any Nazi symbols). The Reichsstrasse 2 crosses Bayreuth in north-south direction and there was one sign 5 kilometers to the north of Bayreuth and one 5 kilometers to the south. During the Third Reich Bayreuth was the Gau capital of the region and of course Richard-Wagner-Stadt where Adolf Hitler a huge Wagner fan, always attended the Wagner Festspiele in the Bayreuth Festspielhaus.

The sign is very large, 955 x 650 x 25mm or (37-1/2 x 25-1/2 x 1 inch) with raised letters and numbers and most of the thick enamel is still present. It was manufactured by a company in Munich and the manufacturers name is visible atthe bottom right corner. We are very much aware of the many fake signs that are offered as originals and we can ensure you that this sign is 100% original and unaltered and we give a full money back guarantee for authenticity. It is very unlikely that there will be another, similar sign be offered for sale.

the sign was manufactured by Emaillierwerk Hans Fink in Munich-Pasing
