SS artefacts and Third Reich signatures remain key themes for 2017
SS artefacts, Third Reich Signatures, military watches and daggers were distinctive collecting themes thoughout 2016 and appear set to continue into 2017 and beyond. Last month, we launched two new categoies dedicated to SS artefacts and Third Reich Signatures.
The Historical Signatures category showcases a great selection of notable, Third Reich personalities including Hitler, Göring, Speer, Himmler, Kaltenbrunner, Blomberg, and others. Third Reich personality signature prices range from a few hundred - to several thousand pounds, so it's possible to start collecting with a relatively modest budget.
The three artefacts selected for our Highlights Page this month include Eva Braun's evening bag, an SS Officer sword originally belonging to LAH Musicmeister Müller-John, plus a unique citation given to SS-Standartenführer Von Nordeck by the staff of SS-Motorstandarte '1' München; all three pieces meet our Museum-Quality Standard.
The Eva Braun evening bag was one of several items acquired by a US Army officer from the Obersalzburg complex in 1945.
The SS Officer sword discovered in an attic during the course of a house-clearance, readily qualifies for our Highlights page; it originally belonged to LAH Musicmeister Müller-John, and is for sale in 'untouched' condition.
Citations are rarely credited with so many [relevant] signatures. The citation given to SS-Standartenführer Von Nordeck by the staff of SS-Motorstandarte '1' München includes 23 ink signatures. Each signature represents the hand of one [of 23] Staff Officers assigned to SS-Motorstandarte '1.' A unique piece appealing equally to SS - and signature collectors.
