Book Was ich bei den Oympischen Spielen-1936 (Item OLY 6-1)

DESCRIPTION: This book by Dr. Paul Wolf is a very rare big Olympic edition (seldom seen). It’s in great condition and comprises 112 pages of pictures, 31 pages of text, and was published in Berlin in 1936. The book has been wrapped in a cellophane cover for years and thus is in near-mint condition. It measures 9 x 11 inches with original dustcover. Torn a little here and there, it’s held up well. The pictures are in the fine sepia tone and beautifully presented; most never before published elsewhere? This is a great find for the Olympic collector.

PRICE: $195.00

Book Das Olympiadebuch (Item OLY 6-2; SS 21-1)

DESCRIPTION: From the library of the SS-Totenkopf Standarte “Oberbayern”, here is one of the books from the large collection of books we purchased from the Steuerampt (The Office) in Bavaria. This was the entire library of the SS-Standarte in Bavaria. There were literally hundreds of books; some like this one, with the bookplate of the SS-Standarte in the cover. This particular book was produced in Leipzig and has 130 pictures of this the greatest Olympiad, the 1936 Olympics, held in Berlin. It must have been a book for participants because in the back are pages for persons to enter in writing timing and distances and winners. One part is filled out for the winter events in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The volume measures 8 ½ x 11 and is in fine condition except for the fact that the dust jacket, which was also probably the illustrated cover, is missing. Still, it is a really fine Olympic book and an important Allgemeine-SS item, as well.

PRICE:  SOLD

Equestrian Poster (Item OLY 6-3; WEHR 18-3)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an equestrian picture posting for the 1936 Olympic Games. These were made to be posted outside the gates at the Olympic horse stables and on the blank areas. The organizers of various events would post for the day the trials, demonstrations, and schedules for each. These are one-of-a-kind in that we have only one of each. They are mounted on board and the original owner/collector did this to preserve the items. For original 1936 items, the condition is great with some staining here and there, but the picture portion is great! The line is drawn through to prevent to some extent copies being made by unauthorized individuals who often try to steal Germania’s rare subjects for publication in various forms without our permission. These are originals and as such are very historically important, indeed. This one is a notice of combined equestrian contests of the German Army and the SA (Storm Troops). It is particularly nice in composition and color and is signed by the company that produced it: Verlag Sank Georg, Berlin (Book producer, St. George, Berlin). The actual poster is 17 x 23 inches in size.

PRICE: $450.00; absolutely original

Equestrian Poster (Item OLY 6-5; SS 21-9)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an equestrian picture posting for the 1936 Olympic Games. These were made to be posted outside the gates at the Olympic horse stables and on the blank areas.

These are originals and as such are very historically important, indeed. This is a poster that would give notice of the equestrian events put on by Allegemeine-SS riders at the 1936 Olympics. The artwork is signed by the artist who uses a strange logo with “v. Ikier” as part of it. Herr v. Ikier was better at drawing horses than he was at depicting the skull and eagle of the early SS cap, but this comes with artist’s interpretation and license, I guess. It is no less dramatic, however. It measures 17 x 23 inches with some stains in the posting section.

Book 1936 Olympics in 3-D (rare!) (Item OLY 6-6)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a fantastic find; the 3-dimension book with viewer and 100 3-D cards showing almost every aspect of these the greatest of all Olympia events. It was published by Heinrich Hoffmann, the NS Party’s official photographer. This book was published in the Olympic year of 1936 (69 years ago) and is an absolute masterwork of photography. There was nothing like it before or since. This is beyond any doubt a treasure not only the sense of a book-collector’s dream, but a historical prize, also. This is one of the finest examples of 3-D photography ever to be seen and it is 100 percent complete with every card intact and in excellent condition. Certain of these Raumbilder (3-D) books are extremely rare and seldom found complete. Here is the exception--this is in fantastically great condition and with no pictures missing. Usually they bring premium prices, regardless. We saw one go recently out of England for $1,600 with bad spine and 5 or 6 pictures missing. We feel this one is a real bargain.

Box-Länderkampf (Boxing Matches) between Italy and Germany (Item OLY 6-11; I-FAS 2-4)

DESCRIPTION: This is a beautiful enameled medallion that must have been a prize for the winning team or individual participation. There were many such matches between these two axis countries prior to WWII. The great Max Schmelling was often a participant. It is also noted that in the post-1939 years when Germans and Italians were incarcerated in American, British, and Canadian P.W. camps, many matches between them were staged. The medallion is large measuring 3 inches in diameter. It’s made of bronze with fine engraving along its edges with the words “Box-Länderkampf Deutschland-Italien.” The traditional German eagle peculiar to sports is in the center seen in high relief.

Olympic Official’s Badge for the 1936 Games (Item OLY 6-13)

DESCRIPTION: Here is one of the scarcest 1936 Olympics items ever found. It is the official’s badge worn by personages such as Reichssportsleiter Hans von Tschammer und Osten and the famous film director for the games, Leni Riefenstal. We understand there were about 100 of these in all and this one is number 88. It is 2 1/2 inches in diameter and was produced in Bakelite. The manufacturer’s mark on the back is ‘Walgo. Kierspe-BHF Weste.’ The number inset on the front is set separately in metal inside a rectangular frame. The rings, Brandenburg Gate, and words XI Olympiade Berlin 1936 seem to be a silver inset process. This is extremely well made and certainly an actual work of the medalist’s art. Practically nothing touches this one for Olympic rarity.

WWII-era Zimmerschützen Target Pistol (Item OLY 6-14; NSD 12-3; WEHR 21-9 )

DESCRIPTION: This is a German parlor pistol or Zimmerschützen. This was a special target pistol used in competition matches for many years in Germany. This particular one has a number code of 100 and the compulsory ‘DRGM’ and the Nazi-style eagle over the ‘N.’ This is the Waffenampt for post-1940 guns made in the Third Reich. These pistols were fitted so that when the hand was inserted into the grips it was like you were just fitted with an artificial arm. You snuggle your hand into a fitted wooden stock that is usually hand-fitted to you so that the firearm feels like it is an actual extension of your arm and hand. This one was made for a right-handed shooter. It has a front stock like a rifle in case the particular match allowed additional stability shooting, but usually the matches were standing freehand. This one has a rolling-block action. It is chambered for .22-caliber, long-rifle ammunition. It has a safety—the upper lever—and it has another lever to set the trigger so sensitive as to set it off by a human hair applied to it, thus the term ‘hair trigger.’ This pistol is in great condition with bluing at 99 percent, and the wood 100 percent. At the bottom of the grip is the cocking lever. When this is pulled the action drops exposing the open breech for the cartridge to be inserted. After firing, a pull on the grip lever will extract the spent cartridge. This is a consignment item and the gun will be sent U.S. only with all legal restrictions observed and through a registered licensed dealer only. It is indeed a rare Third Reich relic, but also a firearm and must be treated and sold as such. Pistols similar to these were used in the 1936 Olympic Games by the top-place German winners.
