Plaque Honoring the Fallen Heroes in Munich at the Sacred Feldherrnhalle (Beer Hall Putsch)
(Item NSD 22-1)

DESCRIPTION: The Feldherrnhalle (Field Marshals’ Hall) was the scene of a bloody confrontation on Friday morning, 9 November 1923, between the Bavarian State Police and followers of Adolf Hitler in which the Nazi party attempted to storm the Bavarian Defense Ministry. This was the culmination of the Nazis' failed coup attempt to take over the Bavarian State, commonly referred to as the “Beer Hall Putsch.” In the ensuing gun battle, four policemen and fourteen marchers were killed, plus two more NSDAP members elsewhere in Munich for a total of sixteen. Many more were wounded, including Hermann Göring. As a result of the failure of the putsch, Hitler was arrested and sentenced to a prison term and to him it was a blessing because with his impassioned speech before the tribunal, he was an overnight sensation with the German people, and the Third Reich saw its real beginning! After the NSDAP took power in 1933, Hitler turned the Feldherrnhalle into a memorial to the party members killed during the failed putsch. A memorial to the fallen SA men was put up on its east side, opposite the location of the shootings. This monument, called the Mahnmal der Bewegung, was created to a design by Paul Ludwig Troost. It was a rectangular structure listing the names of the martyrs. This was under perpetual ceremonial honor guard by the SS. The square in front of the Feldherrnhalle (the Odeonsplatz) was used for SS parades and commemorative rallies. During some of these events the sixteen dead were each commemorated by a temporary pillar placed in the Feldherrnhalle topped by a flame. New SS recruits took their oath of loyalty to Hitler in front of the memorial. Passers-by were expected to hail the site with the Hitler salute and all good Germans and foreign tourists who admired courage and dedication were more than pleased to do so. The plaque is in white metal that is adhered to an octagon-shaped black wooden base It measures about 7 inches high and about 5 inches wide at the widest section. At the top, the NS eagle surmounts the memorial section with the names of the 16 martyrs and under this it has the commemorative date “9.Nov.1923.” Under this is proclaimed “UND IHR HABT DOCH GESIEGT; MAHNMAL MÜNCHEN.“ Here is a genuine and important piece of history from the workers’ Reich. (Long may it stand!!!)

Commemorative Porcelain Medallion (Item NSD 22-2; SA 15-4; FREI 1-15)

DESCRIPTION: This medallion is dedicated to the memory of Albert Leo Schlageter, the martyred hero who defended his sacred Fatherland and his Deutsches Volk. He was a member of the German Freikorps, and his activities sabotaging French occupying troops after World War I led to his arrest and eventual execution (murder) by the occupying French forces. His way of death fostered an aura of martyrdom around him, which was cultivated by German patriotic nationalist groups, in particular the National Socialist Party. During the Third Reich, he was widely commemorated as a national hero and a genuine Teutonic warrior who died for what to him was a glorious cause. The medallion is of the type and style of the various Meissen porcelain commemoratives. Under the Schlageter cross on the reverse side are the dates “26 Mai 1923” and “26 Mai 1933.” On the obverse side there is a depiction of a bust portrait of the hero and under this (translated) it says: “He fell slain by France’s order on 26 May 1923,” and below his name it has a little box that has the message that translates to: “For peace and freedom for the Ruhr and the Rhine.” The size is about 3 1/2 inches in diameter and it is in perfect condition. This is a true historic treasure honoring a young hero and martyr who refused to renounce his faith in his just cause in the name and spirit of his German fatherland. Please go here to view another award for Schlageter at Item FREI 1-1.

Beautifully Carved Wooden Plate from the “Kampfzeit” (Struggle for Power) (Item NSD 22-3; SA 15-2; ART 18-7; WOODMASTER 1-12; BRE 1-7)

DESCRIPTION: This is without a doubt the most beautiful carved commemorative plate that we have ever seen and certainly with the greatest meaning. In 1933, Adolf Hitler was appointed as Reichs Chancellor. The whole meaning of the plate is to commemorate this important world event. The plate has at the top a swastika within the figure of rising a sun. The central design is the large, early NS Party eagle perched upon the early nonmobile swastika that is within a wreath with the date “1933” below it. The meaning is quite deep and has to do with the Machtergreifung (The Seizure of Power). Behind the eagle’s wings are sprays of oak leaves and acorns, the ancient German symbol of victory. Along the edges are the separate cutout words “GROßDEUTSCHLANDS ERWACHEN” (Greater Germany’s Awakening). Below the wreathed swastika are the watchwords (“Freedom and Bread”) of the NS movement “Freiheit u. Brot.” The plate measures 11 inches in diameter. It is in wonderful condition with no parts of the carving missing. All of the artwork is deeply cut and raised. It is probably the finest woodcarving that we have ever seen and would be considered not only extremely rare but also exceedingly beautiful when one looks at the carved wording that is all individually hand cut with fantastic skill; you can realize that this is one of the true artistic treasures of the early Third Reich.

Tapestry of National Socialist Grand Opera (Item NSD 22-4)

DESCRIPTION: Here is one of the prettiest tapestries ever to be found. When great opera recitals were performed such as Wagner’s Ring of the Nibelung or Hitler’s favorite, Rienzi, the honored guests would sit in a special box from which generally hung a tapestry. In the case of the Führer’s attendance at such an event, the tapestry was presented with the magnificent imposing design of the Führer standard. Other designs might be the Reichsmarschall crest present if Hermann Göring and Frau Emmy might be the honorable guests for the performance on any particular evening. If the political leader corps attended, the tapestry we feature here would most likely hang from the box of one or more of the special seating high above the general-admission seating. Sometimes as you can see in our picture, even the Führer would have a tapestry such as this suspended from his box seating, but the common denominator was that only the high-placed individuals would mutually enjoy the specially designated seating that was invariably decorated with these gorgeous fabric hangings. Wandteppich (tapestry). This one is a truly remarkable work of Germanic art that is truly Teutonic in its workmanship and of pure Aryan presentation. In its center is the traditional swastika formed in the mobile positioning. This entire symbol is framed with a ropelike support. The swastika is laid upon a white field that has golden bars that run to the bottom of the design—two inches wide interrupted only by two of the extremities of the swastika. The bold, golden edging bars are three inches wide. The gold bullion employed is quite heavy and is beautifully iridescent. At the very bottom is an array of knotted fringe done up in tassels; the most beautiful that we have even seen on a tapestry or a standard. The entire piece is quite heavy. It has no clip at the top for suspension. It would have been considered rather “gross” to add such cheap fittings to such a masterwork. How was it suspended from the box? Since the tapestry has no apparent loops, clips, or other hanging devices, we have been told on reliable authority that there was a folding bar that clamped over the top of the fabric holding it in a fixed position. Such pieces as this venerable and highly cherished treasure would never be pierced with crude hanging devices. The highly esteemed piece measures 45 inches wide with a length of 42 inches and then an extra 8 inches for the golden-knotted tassels. Nothing seems to exclaim the inner cultural awareness of the N.S. regime as do tapestries. The destinies of humanity are said to be woven by the Norms.

NSDAP Amber Cufflinks (Item NSD 22-5)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an utterly beautiful original set of cufflinks from the Third Reich. They are a large frame set with swastikas encased in a silver, bold arming. The swastikas are mounted on Bernstein (amber) which, to many Teutonic peoples, signifies the Holy Stone of Germania and especially during the Third Reich period (Imperium). They measure about an inch square each. On the surface at least, they are perfect and quite handsome; however, the toggle clasp on one of them was broken away. This is very unfortunate, but as important historical display pieces, they are as excellent as ever. They were probably custom made for some patriotic member of the NSDAP, who treasured them.

PRICE: $300.00; if perfect they would be over $1,000.00

Utterly Fantastic and Original Important Photograph Album (Item NSD 22-5; ALBUM 4-12; ART 18-10; SPECIAL ITEMS)

DESCRIPTION: Here is the most important photo album we have ever seen, and certainly the finest. The pictures are brilliant and to a point of absolute photographic perfection! There are 195 photos that seem to say it all about the Third Reich’s “Imperium”! It starts with pictures of the Haus der Deutschen Kunst from the time when this beautiful building contained gorgeous artistic renderings that staggered the viewer with charm and strength, patriotism, and decent emotion aforethought, unlike what utter degenerate trash that has been thrust into those hallowed halls today after they removed the word Deutschen. There are about 16 pages that fantastically chronicle the finest and greatest parade that anyone can envision since the triumphal Roman legions in their celebrations of victory. The beautiful trappings for the celebration and procession are shown making the old city bright and radiant by night and day and then the march known as “2,000 Years of German Culture” follows. The parade begins with full battle-ready Viking ships and Norse warriors. Father Rhine is depicted in a boat surrounded by Rhine maidens, knights on horseback, celestial floats, Wagnerian themes, knights and emperors, Goths and Deities, and eagles galore! The massive and stately Richard Klein eagle and swastika are seen on a float. There is a model of the Reichstagsgebäude in Berlin, runners carrying torches from the 1936 Olympics, a regiment of Grenadiers from the time of Frederick the Great, and a final picture of Wehrmacht (Army) (Heer) presenting its colors to a military assembly. Also, there’s a march past the SS-Leibstandarte and after that there are six pages showing the preparation for the visit of Benito Mussolini to Munich as a guest of Adolf Hitler in September 1937. The stately Roman and Reich eagles are shown everywhere and the Munich gate entrances are bedecked with large “M” letters to honor the great and most welcome head of the Fascist Italian state. There are a couple of great pictures of Adolf Hitler and Mussolini standing in front of the Führerbau with troops marching by (utterly fantastic!). Then, there are pictures of celebrations and commemorations of the sacred November 9 Day and march to the Feldherrenhalle. This ceremony occurred on November 9 every year and the marchers were mostly the original participants in the Beer Hall Putsch. The first photo has Julius Streicher singularly leading the parade then P.G. SS Jakob Grimminger with the Blutfahne (Blood Flag) then in the third frame Adolf Hitler and other Alte Kämpfer bring up the middle and following this there are four more great pictures of this Feldherrenhalle march. Then there are several pages of march-by of the SA, SS, NSKK, Hitler Youth, and Political Leaders Corps all marching in glorious unity through the streets of Munich. Then there are several pages devoted to an exhibition of the Reichsnährstand—an independent organization of the agricultural economy and agricultural policy in the German Reich. Its charismatic leader, Walther Darré, wished to extol peasant values as found in the Nordic race like no other! There are a couple of pages devoted to the sacred Rhine River and the N.S. industrialization, thereof. Then comes about five pages of the greatest photos of SA ceremonies, reviews, a party funeral, a high-ranking NS political leader addressing wounded war vets. There are some really charming, but bold, pictures of SA and NSKK men at work and rest. Among these can be seen a highly decorated member of the N.S. Gauleitung addressing the faithful. There are some great close-ups of the patriotic zeal of the rank and file “Brownshirts.” After this, there are a few photos of the Munich rural areas and inner city and some of Salzburg, wonderful and typical Bavarian housing, etc. On the last the page we see the Völkerschlachtdenkmal of Leipzig, the most glorious monument commemorating the battle of nations against Napoleon in 1812. And on the last page is seen the airship Hindenburg as it floats over the German countryside. The photographer who created this magnificent album was obviously a very professional lens artist and except for a couple of out of focus photos of the November 9th march, the rest of the 193 photos are simply consummate perfection! He obviously had some granted authority from the NSDAP to be able to take such great photographs at such close range of some these high-security events. He may have even been a member of the Political Leaders Corps. In any event, he has left a grand and important record of the time of the German “Imperium.” This large album measures 16 x 12 inches and is quite heavy: about five pounds. The leather covers are perfect front and back. Most of the photographs have handwritten captions—in German—underneath each one, but not on the pictures, rather the writing is on the album paper. All the pages have the typical onionskin dividers. This precious ultraimportant archival treasure must be preserved. Hitler said at the 1937 opening of the House of Deutschen Kunst: “No people live longer than the documentation of their culture.” “Kien Volk lebt Länger als die Documente seiner Kultur.“

PRICE: $2,950.00


*PS. Since acquiring this masterpiece album and subsequent to our writing its description, we have acquired copy of the N.S. woman’s magazine Frauen-Warte from August 1939. The cover and some of the inner text are devoted to the day of German art and other vastly important and interesting subjects dealing with “true art.” This rare publication will be included with the album.

This is extremely rare and one of the most beautifully designed pins of the Third Reich. This stickpin is well marked with the signature of the very famous firm of Deschler in Munich. It is also marked with the traditional "Ges. Gesch." The item is in genuine 800 silver.

Mirror of the Movement (Item NSD 22-7; ART 18-17)

DESCRIPTION:It was often said that the NSDAP was the mirror of Nordic and Teutonic Imperium as in Grecian and Roman culture. Here is a little trinket of the type that might be presented to participants in a fund-raising dinner or other patriotic event sponsored by the N.S. culture chamber. It’s probably the neatest, petite gift that would have been devised for the culturally aware patriots among the faithful. It looks like the hand mirror as used by the nobility of old who were now the nobility of National Socialism. The overall size of the mirror is slightly over 3 inches long. The mirror glass is clear and framed into a silver-colored, round, open, bedecked floral motif the center of which shows the early N.S. eagle and swastika. The handle of the mirror is decorated with further floral ornamentation. This little instrument is exceedingly rare and we believe very historically important to the culture-bearing stratum particularly inherent our field of collecting.

Interesting NS Pocket Mirror (Item NSD 22-8; ART 18-18)

DESCRIPTION:Here is a pocket mirror as would be carried in the purse of a patriotic woman in the 1920s and 30s that bears the likeness of her Führer, Adolf Hitler. It’s an undeniable fact that he was beloved by the German folk in general, but especially among the women of the nation. This is emphasized in the book Gun of Destiny by Robert A. Johnston available through us. The mirror is the typical size as popular with the ladies: 2½ inches in diameter with a depiction of the Führer and the title of his name. The edging of the roundel is decorated in the Greek key pattern personally designed by Hitler and is similar to what is seen on his personal tableware. This was a favored design pattern for the leader for many NS items. The glass side is perfect and not at all scratched and so is the obverse side. Politically inspired mirrors like this are quite rare and seldom seen in the collecting world today. Condition=Excellent!

Pocket Mirror that Depicts the Birth House of Adolf Hitler in Braunau am Inn, Austria (Item NSD 22-9; AH 31-7)

DESCRIPTION: This is one the mirrors from a collection in Nuremberg, Germany. Until we managed to buy this collection of six pieces, these mirrors were extremly rare and still are. This being one of the pieces is probably the most desirable of all. It depicts the house in which Adolf Hitler was born near the Austrian-German border. A view of the house is depicted and under it the wording “UNSERES FÜHRERS GEBURTSSTATTE IN BRAUNAU AM INN”–“Our Leader’s Birthplace in Braunau am Inn.” The mirror’s obverse side is in great shape, but the reflective mirror looks like it might have been replaced at some time in the past; however, it’s holding fine but shows some minute chips along the edges. It measures almost three inches in diameter and is very impressive looking and is obviously an important historic relic that makes a statement. It would have been a demonstration by the patriotic lady of her faith in her leader and his party and Deutschland!

NSDAP Mirror with Salute to Adolf Hitler (Item NSD 22-10; AH 31-8)

DESCRIPTION: This is one of the pieces that we bought out of a very special, private European collection. Until we managed to buy this collection of six pieces, these mirrors were extremly rare and still are. As mentioned in the ones listed above they are attractive items carried in the purses of patriotic N.S.-oriented women as a "tell the world" trinket that demonstrates the ladies' political sentiments in defiance of the Red Front and reactionary forces. This one in particular made no bones about it along with the early N.S eagle, pre-Machtergreifung style of the late 1920s. This eagle was exactly the type seen on the kepis of the SA Brown Shirt Troopers. The motto seen is the blatantly proud: "Heil Hitler!" and our dear lady says to the world, "I hope it does not offend you, but if it does, then tell it to the SA!" The reflective mirror portion seems a bit loose and has some tiny chips along its edges, but the obverse with eagle and statement are in fine condition. The mirror measures a little over 2 inches in diameter. This is a true original Kampzeit article of historic importance.

DESCRIPTION: This is an interesting and rare NSDAP patriot’s mirror in in the same tradition of the mirrors above: inspired by NS Party patriot themes. Until we managed to buy this collection of six pieces, these mirrors were extremly rare and still are. These mirrors come from a private European collection and have never before been offered. They are in our estimation each–one of a kind. This one is especially neat and depicts the early 1920s style NSDAP eagle and around it are the words “Dem Deutschen Nat.-Sozialismus die Zukunft!”–“German National Socialism is the future! The reflective mirror portion is perfect as is the eagle obverse. The mirror is not only used to reflect the ladies’ pretty face, but it was reflective of a future of a system that unfortunately had a sad destiny awaiting. “Kien Volk lebt Länger als die Documente seiner Kultur."

NSDAP Patriotic Mirror from a Special European Collection (Item NSD 22-12)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a mirror from the exclusive European collection that the others seen above were once featured in. Until we managed to buy this collection of six pieces, these mirrors were extremly rare and still are. This was an exclusive 75-year collection in Germany and these pieces are some of the rarest items being offered from it. This particular mirror was evidently reflects the NSDAP saying as used by the Sturmabteilung, or SA, and was shown on their standards, “Deutschland erwache!”—“Germany Awake!” The eagle depicted is the style used after the Machtergreifung (“seizure of power” 30 January 1933). The reflective mirror portion is in fine, unchipped condition and the eagle obverse is also in perfect condition with no dings or abrasions. On the sides of the wreathed swastika you can see small letters that spell out “GES GESCH.” The mirror measures 2½ inches in diameter. When the lady lifted this item to her lovely face, it was obvious to the onlooker that here was one who obviously believed in her party, Führer, and Vaterland.

DESCRIPTION: This pocket mirror is similar to those posted above; it shows the Reichsadler (Reich eagle) perched upon the wreathed swastika, but this one proclaims in its legend, “Unser die Zukunft!”’ (“Our Future!”). They say there are those who still hold out hope that this is a prophetic statement. The saying was widely used by the Hitler Youth. This mirror is among the ultrarare pieces that you see in the examples above. It is in fine condition throughout with a slight dent at the one o’clock position. The size—similar to the ones above—is about 2½ inches in diameter. Until we bought the collection, it was truly rare to ever see any of these items available anywhere. This is a great acquisition for the “C.C.” (culture collector).

Special Edition of the Official NSDAP Newspaper I.B. Illustrierter Beobachter (Illustrated Observer) Published by the Franz Eher Verlag in Munich (Item NSD 22-14; AH 31-9)

DESCRIPTION: Miraculously, here is very probably one of the only editions ever published of this chronicle that surely is the saga that is an ultra-important time in German History in this condition. We say “miraculous” because of the obvious fragility of this type of newspaper. This was specially issued on November 14, 1935, almost 86 years ago. It is more than remarkable that it survived that long. The issue is special in that it is a pictorial chronicle of the “Beer Hall Putsch” that took place on November 8-9, 1923. This became a yearly, almost sacred, reenactment by the original participants including Adolf Hitler, and this journal made a special edition that covered the history of that event in vivid pictures. See in our images the cover with special red band, removable attachment with words proclaiming the event title and announcing that there are pictures of the events in this edition—and pictures there are! Dozens of them!); very great and dramatic photo coverage. The edition is complete with the Putsch memories being at least half the content. This is an archival treasure without any doubt. It’s in very good condition with very minor edge-of-page wear. Some of the inner pages are loose and somewhat unattached, but all there and good! I doubt that there would be one of these special issues in this condition even internationally.

PRICE: $135.00

Large NSDAP Flag or Banner (pre-1933)-Kampfzeit (Item NSD 22-15; FLAG 5-11)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a big one! Size 50 x 120 inches. It is double sided so it could be used as a fluttering flag or hanging on a wall outside or inside of a building. It’s in good shape except for a VERY minor rip or two along its top edge. This flag is rare in that it is a very early style (pre-1933) in that the swastika is what we term as “stationary” vice “mobile” (squared off, not angled as with the later examples). Also, the very early 1920s-style flags are in a deep-red coloration rather than seen with the lighter, red color in the post-Machtergreifung types. These Kampfzeit flags are very scarce today and seldom turn up. We are most fortunate to be able to offer one.

Inner NSDAP Award for a Woman (Item NSD 22-16; AH 31-12)

DESCRIPTION: Within the inner sanctum of the NSDAP in the early formation period long before the ascending to power that came with the "Machtergreifung," Hitler and his party were totally dependent upon private financial support. We know that he vastly admired women and they were known to love him even to the point of enchantment, and seemingly even more than many of his loyal male followers, and especially in those early days when he was generally considered a wild-eyed radical. Unfortunately, some of the women who actually got close to him became suicidal when the affairs were cut short and when he made it clearly known that his priority was Germany and that he was "married" to its ideals and destiny. Robert A. Johnston covers this thoroughly and competently in his book, Gun of Destiny. A bevy of prominent women offered and managed to introduce Hitler to Bavaria's high society. The main female contributor was Helen Bechstein, the wife of Edwin Bechstein who was the famed piano maker and multimillionaire with connections to other extremely wealthy personages who contributed to Hitler and the fledgling N.S. Party such as Elsa Bruckmann, the wife of a publishing magnate. Of course there was Winifred Wagner, Richard Wagner's English-born daughter-in-law. Among the woman with close ties to Hitler, Helene Hanfstaengl, played a special role, which included possibly saving his life (see Gun of Destiny by R. Johnston). Well known in Hitler's love life is the tragic incident with Geli Raubal, and finally the suicide of the loyal Eva at his side in the bunker in 1945. Most of the women in Hitler's court never wavered in their devotion to him and the Third Reich. In particular, Winifred Wagner was one of the ladies that continued to proudly proclaim their loyalty to Hitler and when interviewed after the war when some people denied their previous enthusiastic support for him, Frau Wagner proclaimed earnestly her steadfast admiration and love for the Führer and her true friend! Adolf Hitler certainly was the ladies' man.

The Award

The piece is comprised of a portrait depiction of Adolf Hitler in the forefront of the medallion. It's an obvious likeness of Adolf Hitler and to his side in the background there is an outline image of another person who likely is Reich president Paul von Hindenburg who in 1933 conferred the office of Chancellor on the future Führer. We think this piece is pre-1933 and was a token gift to women who were so magnanimous to the party and their leader when they needed it so much. The typical German eagle as used very early by the party is seen at the top and its claws clutch the silver-colored cross with its oak-leaf-motif trim the center of which features the portraits. The backside is quite plain in brass and right at the area of the eagle's head is a jump ring fitted for a chain suspension. The medallion is about 2¾ inches in length with the eagle's wingspan of about 2 inches. The piece is in fine condition with all the gold "gilt" intact. This is a handsome token of heartfelt thankfulness for loyalty to the destiny of the NSDAP.

PRICE: $850.00; Extremely rare!
