Sorry, but this doesn't look original to me. The platter is just an old platter, the swastika marking is totally non-typical and look added. The engraving style is very suspect, over done, and "un-German". The wear pattern looks like it's been intensionally done. Unless you could find another example with good provenance I would say this is probably a current fake made from an old platter.... of NO historical or monetary value.
