Adolf Hitler’s Top Hat and Formal Coat (Item AH 19-1)

DESCRIPTION: This is probably the greatest Hitler item ever offered on Germania. It is without doubt one of the most personal items ever offered by any militaria source. It is an exceptionally rare grouping having personal Reichs Chancellor Adolf Hitler tailor labels and provenance letter. The group includes fine black wool and sateen velvet diplomatic dress frockcoat with full tails and satin lapels and lining made by firm of Kun & Nupnau, München. It has black buttons, loops, and a hemmed fastening hole on the left breast for Hitler's Iron Cross 1st Class and Wound Badge in black. There are tiny traces of the pin for the party eagle on the reverse of the lapel. The shop label is sewn into the collar "Kuhn & Nupnau, München," and the tailor's label is sewn into the right breast pocket by same company named to Herrn Reichskanzler A. Hitler, Nr. 12581-S, 17.7.1937. There is deluxe-sewn label to inner rear collar. Lacks 1 button: others present. Also, collar lining is somewhat torn. Group further includes Hitler’s deluxe top hat in original case, named to Hitler. This fine black, silk felt top hat has brim edging and hat band of black moiré and white silk inner lining with maker’s inscription, "Jul. Thannhauser-Munich-Rindermarkt 7" and comes in its original hat box with black silken ‘pillow’ to support it. Hat box has same label and metal latches. Hat is size 58 with personal label under the leather sweatband for Hitler stating: `Hutfabrick Jul. Thannhauser Munchen. Lieferjahr 1936. Herrn Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler, Nr. 827, Modell Wien Kopfweite 58.’ Hat also has full maker Lieferant (supplier) to inside top. All items are in excellent condition with 100-percent named provenance! The letter of provenance signed by the widow of a Major Frank M. Sinclair, who was commander of the Co. D, 328th Glider Inf. Regt. 101st Airborne Div., who recovered both the coat and hat at Hitler’s home at Berchtesgaden/Obersalzburg. Letter is dated 1 June 1964, and made out to Douglas P. Finey. Later the outfit became a possession of the famous Weitze Company in Hamburg, Germany, and Ron Manion in Kansas City. The Führer often wore the outfit when attending opera functions in Berlin and Nuremberg, but always when visiting Bayreuth and attending any staged Wagnerian opera with Winifred Wagner. This was always the most important moment of his very existence; putting every political function and military objective behind for at least one evening while the light in the theater went low and the curtains opened on the Meistersinger or Siegfried. This outfit we offer was most assuredly there! You will note in our article, “Gun of Destiny,”, a picture of Hitler wearing this outfit. We entitled this chapter “The King and Queen of Munich.” When Hitler was accompanied by his niece, Geli Raubel, on their many sojourns into the world of culture (operas, plays), he would usually order his photographer, Heinrich Hoffmann, to cease and desist taking pictures that would show him with Geli. His reasons were varied, but as he often said to his inner circle, he wanted the public and ardent admirers to think of him as a single man married only to his “Germany.” Later, even Eva Braun was treated in the same manner. “Hush,” was generally the word. It is historically apparent that women were deeply infatuated with “the leader” and it was thought generally if he was to have the great support of the distaff side it would be psychologically better if he was pictured as the eternal bachelor. He always tried to have himself surrounded by women, however, and vastly enjoyed their company. The stories of women falling all over him, supporting him with huge donations, and in several cases in utter despondent frustration, either successfully committing suicide as did Geli and Unity Mitford, or trying to. He did cut a rather handsome figure in that day and age, but we know his attraction was much more than that. It was his strange and powerful magnetism expressed in his almost hypnotic blue eyes and his mannerisms during his speech delivery. Even his enemies admitted that he was imbued with utterly unbelievable powers of persuasion—almost irresistible. It was usually women who fell entranced under this spellbinding charm that was almost uncanny! We offer a little of this supporting information with the express purpose of illustrating to the reader the fact that contrary to the picture of Hitler in the brown shirts and swastika armband with leather belt, cross strap, and boots reviewing battalions of SS and SA troopers or haranguing a crowd of faithful followers. Now we know there was also the social Hitler, the man about town, the bon vivant, the lady’s man. This wonderful historical find is evidence of this Hitler and surely must be preserved. In November 2006, the British broadcasting Company (BBC) featured an article about Hitler’s desk from his apartment at the Prinzregentenstrasse in Munich. It seems the desk was to be auctioned and expected to bring about £500,000 (pounds); about a million dollars. This is the very desk that the Hitler revolver came out of. See “Gun of Destiny” on our site. I guess it is up to your reasoning as to what would be most important to history, the gun, the desk, or the top hat and tailcoat. All are, to my mind, equally important, but price is usually the criteria. I suppose the coat and hat could be sent to auction, but the consigner prefers to sell it outright and at a very, very reasonable price. The items are completely genuine and will make a fantastic and extremely sound investment for the wise entrepreneur. Below is a transcript of the letter from the widow of Major Frank Sinclair, in whose possession these articles came to be:

“This is to certify that I disposed of to Mr. Douglas P. Finey of Augusta, Georgia, a tailcoat and top hat which once belonged to Adolf Hitler. [These] two items were found by my husband, Major Frank M. Sinclair, commanding officer of CO D, 328th Glider Infantry [Group] of the 101st Airborne Division, in the ruins of Hitler’s mountain home at the Obersalzburg above Berchtesgaden. Given my personal knowledge of my husband’s acquisition of [these] two items, I can state with certainty that they once belonged to Adolf Hitler and were taken from his mountain home. /s/ Mrs. Frank M. Sinclair”

Unfortunately, the present owner of this outfit put it on consignment with us and then twice changed the price. Also, there is some controversy over the originality of the items. The only reason we have allowed it to remain on our pages is to illustrate the fact that the Führer did in fact dress in evening attire from time to time. (An interesting historical fact).

DESCRIPTION: This 160-page book entitled A Chronicle in Color, Hitler’s Berghof, 1928-1945, is a coffee-table-type volume measuring 8 1/2 x 12 inches and is just one beautiful edition depicting in Agfa color the beautify of Hitler’s mountain retreat in the Alps (Obersalzberg).

Forty-eight of the first pages are explanatory text in German, but in the front cover you will find four pages of English translations of the text under the pictures that are in color; and what! color.

There are pictures of the house, grounds, views from the heights, rooms within, Hitler, Goebbels, Himmler, Bormann, Göring, Hitler’s adjutants, honored guests such as Hans-Ulrich Rudel and other Knight’s Cross recipients, generals, field marshals, admirals, foreign dignitaries, the children of party officials, plus children from the area entertained by the Führer.

Book Das Reich Adolf Hitlers (Item AH 19-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is a great picture book portraying different pivotal years of the Third Reich in some of the best photographic shots we have ever seen. It contains hundreds of great pictures that were not published in other books: Wehrmacht, party functionaries, Kriegsmarine, SS grand events, Hitler, Mussolini, NS art, architecture of the Reich, etc. It has 123 pages and measures 8 x 10 inches. Inside the front cover is a handwritten inscription that says in German: “War Christmas 1942, from your Aunt Lizzi.” This blank page has some child’s hand scribbling with crayon, but it does not appear anywhere else. The rest of the pages are perfect. The cover is in nice shape except for a little bit of wear. Inside it also says (printed): “Christmas book for the German youth presented (published by) Balder von Schirach, the national Hitler Youth leader.” It was a limited edition of 100,000 books and is thus very rare. This is a fine historical archival treasure of the NS party and German nation.

Hitler Election Token (Item AH 19-4)

DESCRIPTION: Very extremely rare this is an aluminum token issued by the NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers Party) as an inducement to vote list 2 for the National Socialists on the ballot. Is says: “Vote for the NS party.” It has a tiny swastika at the bottom of the writing. The obverse has a bust portrait of Hitler with the words: “Adolf Hitler, the leader of necessity!” The token is about the size of an U.S. 50-cent piece and except for a few minor scratches is in very good shape. We cannot overemphasize the historical importance of this piece. It’s about 1 1/4 inches in diameter (very light). This was handed out near the polling places by various uniformed functionaries to include SA troopers and Hitler Youth members. It was a very useful propaganda tool trading on the fact that many Germans were by their nature collectors of various coin-like trinkets and would appreciate the efforts of a political group which might think to present such a nice little gift from their leader. In all our years in this line we have seen only one other of these and that was in a collection on display in Munich at the City Museum in 1993. This exhibition was called: “München-Haupstadt der Bewegung,” “Munich, the head city of the movement.” This is definitely a museum article and is extremely important to the history of the NS movement.

Original Card of Admittance to a Speech of Adolf Hitler in 1932 (Item AH 19-5)

DESCRIPTION: This is fantastically rare in that it is from the year of Hitler’s first bid to be elected in 1932, when he ran against Reich’s President Paul von Hindenburg. This speech in the city of Cologne (Köln) was held after Hitler was defeated at the polls in April 1932. This speech was held in the Köln fairgrounds in the festive meadow in July 1932, and it was billed as a traveling demonstration (Reisen Kundgebung) The speaker was to be, of course, Hitler with a talk by Reichsleiter and, later, labor leader Dr. Robert Ley. The price of admission was 5 Reichmarks. It was called a contribution and it was promised that there would be a first-class loudspeaker system. “You can find the demonstration in the grand hall of the fair office. It begins at 5:15, but at 3:00 on there will be a military concert.” There is a place that the Sitzplatz, or reserved seat, will be numbered. Up in the right-top corner is a number in a tear-away perforation as to the admittance number. On the back there is an Aufnahme-Erklarung, an admission statement, that had to be filled out. This was to identify any possible communist or reactionary troublemakers that might seek to attend. It was also an invitation to join the party. The NSDAP was soliciting for membership. On the card it says: “I hereby apply for membership and ask that you send me an application or a visit by a confidant.” This was an important series of speeches that Hitler was giving since now that he was defeated in 1932, he was preparing for another bid in 1933, and we know that this run was successful (the majority of the German public voted for him). The card measures 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches. It’s in great condition. At the bottom of the card’s backside is a question to be answered by the attendee: “Are you a subscriber to the Westdeutschen Beobachters (Observer) newspaper?” This is the type of thing that did not survive and is very rare. Its importance? Well, I have seen hundreds of NS and Wehrmacht daggers, but never before one of these historically important little speech admissions. Germania is proud to offer this great object of the NS Kampfzeit! We picked up a small lot of these in beautiful, well-preserved condition. They have different admission and seating numbers in the right-top corner .

Book Collectors Guide to “Liberated” Adolf Hitler Memorabilia (Item AH 19-6)

DESCRIPTION: Here, at last is the book you all have been waiting for; the revised edition of Mark D. Griffith’s book on Adolf Hitler items. I don’t know how many dozens of times I have had collectors pounding the computer keys practically begging us to find a used copy of this manual for them. We have people offering to pay as much as $100 to $150 for one. NOW, you can have both volumes in one with revisions included that will list additional items not found in the first editions to include Hermann Göring items. This is an invaluable book for the collector of Hitler items. We personally don’t like the word ‘Liberated.’ We feel that ‘looted’ would have been a better descriptive word. But Griffith chose to use it. It has 165 pages full of pictures and descriptions of Hitler-owned articles, Eva Braun’s personal items, and now some Göring treasures, as well. This is the best reference to date. It is hoped someone will do a better one, but this for now, is “it.” We have a limited supply so consider adding it to your collection post haste.

PRICE: $68.00; again, it is limited. SOLD OUT; trying to reorder.

Adolf Hitler’s Letter Opener (Item AH 19-7)

DESCRIPTION: Here is at least one of the finest and rarest of all Adolf Hitler items ever offered. Everyone who is familiar with the various eagles denoting different sections, offices, and various corps knows that you can tell instantly by looking at any Third Reich eagle as to what department it represents. The German Army eagle is different than the SS eagle; the eagle of the sports organization in distinctly different than the Hitler Youth one; the Luftwaffe eagle is unique. With pictures attached we demonstrate the grandest eagle of them all: Der Führeradler, or Hitler’s personal eagle. This very distinctive bird was only seen on buildings and items personal to him. The most noticeable example being the Reich’s chancellery décor where this Hoheitsabzeichen was evident inside and outside the Neue Reichskanzlei. This powerful symbol was to be seen in the front entrance over the massive foyer eternally guarded by men of the Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler (LAH), above the doorways of the führer’s personal office, and to the famous marble gallery. The eagle was designed and sculpted by Kurt Schmid Ehmen. For more on this man, who was one of the finest and most important artists of the Reich, go to Item ART 9-1. The tribune eagles were masterpieces indeed, but this chancellery eagle exceeded all others on pure consummate imposing symmetry. What we proudly offer is a presentation letter opener that is utterly magnificent and has this very same Ehmen eagle as its cross guard sculpted in exceptionally well-defined gilt metal measuring 1 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches. The same eagle as viewed from the front is applied back to back on the opposite side. A 5-inch blade in bronze has a high ridge running down the center. The same color bronze forms the very tip of the grip. The blade is shaped like the typical Teutonic sword used by the ancient Germanic tribes. This is an interesting innovation, when one gives thought to its meaning. It’s seemingly obvious that the grip was manufactured by Allach, the SS porcelain manufactory outside Dachau in Bavaria. About 20 years ago this writer remembers a desk ink blotter that undoubtedly was sold that would have been most likely a part of a set that this letter belonged to. The blotter was sold by Mr. Gehard Windbeil, a prestigious dealer in Third Reich items, of King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. We show a picture of this blotter herein. Note again the Chancellery eagle and also, the pure-white finish in porcelain. This blotter was made by Allach and the eagle was also in gilded brass. The item was sold for 12,000 D.M. It would bring many times that amount, today. The consigner was presented this letter opener by an American WWII army chaplain who acquired it in Germany in 1945. There is a letter dated 10-05 handwritten by a person named Lyle in the state of Michigan. The consigner has cut the name out stating that he did not want the person he got it from contacted to buy more items from her/him. The facsimile signature of Hitler appears in gold on the grip’s porcelain body. The signature is very interesting in that it is the style recognized by the late Charles Hamilton in his book Leaders and Personalities of the Third Reich, as the signature of Hitler in the 1920s. Hamilton shows a signature from some document in 1923, when the future führer was 34 years old. It occurred to us also that the signature on the paperweight was of the later variety in the 1940s. This leads us to believe that each piece that was in the whole set would have had a different style according to what period of Adolf Hitler’s life would be noted. This was probably the paramount message that was conveyed artistically as the motif of the group. How many pieces there were can only be speculative at this point. But it is assumed that there was a pen stand with inkwells in the original set. If they are ever located it will probably and likely bear another Hitler signature representative of another time period. The signature on the letter opener is from the period known as “Der Kampfzeit,” “The struggle for power.” We show in our thumbnail images a page from Charles Hamilton’s book depicting the 1920s signature of Hitler and later ones, as well. Hitler had many desks; at the Berghof (image shown), the Chancellery, the Braun House, and the apartment at the Prinzregentenplatz. This desk from his apartment is now being offered at a London auction with a million-dollar estimate. Go to Google and type in “Hitler desk.” We don’t know for sure which one this letter opener comes from, but because it is definitely the Chancellery eagle, we believe it to be a safe assumption that this is where it reposed. We feel strongly that this was made by the Allach firm; at least the grip. There have been many fine AH items offered from time to time like napkin rings, tableware, stationery, books, his top hat and formal coat, picture frames, etc. Many of these things have been offered by us, but with the exception of the clothing, no one can be sure (really sure) that each item, no matter how great, was actually personally used by the führer, himself. This is a unique item. There is a bronze inkwell that has been offered recently that is the very one from the Führerbau in Munich. It is most definitely the very inkwell that is part of a desk set. It has this same Reich’s Chancellery eagle on its surface. This is the inkwell from the führer’s desk that the Munich agreement was signed with. Probably the ink blotter and this letter opener were also from this desk. In any case, here is an item almost certainly used personally by Hitler (it talks to you!) Besides being prodigiously historically important it is extremely well designed and beautiful! Note that the swastika is stationary rather than mobile. Just as it is on Kurt Ehmen’s eagle that was above the entrance to the Vosstrasse side of the Chancellery. While inside, the doorways are topped with the same style, but with mobile swastikas. The swastika on the blotter is in this form, also. So fine is the metalwork that the swastika sets separate and deep within the oak-leaf wreath giving it a fine jewelry effect and indeed it is in fact, very fine. Sometimes, an item that comes in really impresses us to a very great extent. With this one it can be said that we are extremely proud to be able to have the honor and prestige to offer a small, but vastly important Hitler item to the advanced collector and museums.

Portrait of Hitler in Oil (Item AH 19-8; ART MASTER 1-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is so incredible a piece of work that one has to stand in utter awe. Our artist has captured the exact likeness of the führer right down to the “magnetic eyes.” We have never seen a better portrait of Adolf Hitler. The magazine cover that bears this picture is just great and of course right from the period, but it is safe to say that this German artist has even improved on it (amazing!). This is a big rendering measuring 31 x 40 inches. It has been professionally stretched and is on the stretcher (no frame). You would pay multiple thousands for an original portrait in oil that is this fine. So if it is only the realism and the artistic message that you seek, here is the best you will ever find. No domestic artist worth his salt would do it, even if they could do it, under a couple of thousand, at least.

Hitler Plate, Early Portrait (Item AH 19-9)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a portrait plate of Adolf Hitler as he looked in the 1920s during the Kampfzeit, the “Struggle for Power.” In those days he wore a tailored black business suit when addressing audiences that were composed of professional people, factory owners, people in government, religiously inspired citizens, etc. He also dressed in this suit when he would attend government functions as a guest and certainly always when an honored guest at the homes of potential supporters such as at the Bechstein’s villa. Helen Bechstein, who was the wife of wealthy piano manufacturer Carl Bechstein, often invited the future führer to their home. The Bechsteins donated large sums of money to the party and to help Hitler’s career by introducing him to influential people. It was Helene who introduced him to Berchtesgaden where they had a villa. It was always her expectation that Hitler would marry her daughter, Lotte. Now, to the plate. The Hitler bust portrait stands out boldly and is in stark realism with all the features that we have come to know so well. The intensity of his magnetic stare is brought out vividly. This is without a doubt one of the better portraits of the man who for a time emerged from starving artist to lowly, but brave, corporal in WWI to struggling politician to the most important leader of the 20th century. The plate might possibly be a souvenir of a better type as sold in exclusive shops through the Reich, but our historian says that it also could be a gift from Hitler, himself, through party auspices given to persons like the Bechsteins who had done so much for him and the party. The quality of this porcelain piece would indicate that this is a distinct possibility. The plate is the usual plate size in bright Allach-style finish. The edges are in bright gold bezel, as expensive art plates usually are. The piece was produced by Thomas in Bavaria, a very prestigious porcelain firm founded in 1908 and continues to make some of the world’s finest china. Today, they are part of the Rosenthal group of the finest makers of hard-paste porcelain. So, here is a great historical relic of the Reich that may be a really important Hitler-connected item. But if not directly, it still is an ultrarare piece of history and Imperium.

Patriot’s Hitler Box (Item AH 19-10)

DESCRIPTION: This was special box that could be purchased in the 1930s by party members or by people inspired by the NSDAP and its dynamic leader, the Führer Adolf Hilter. The box is in a light brass and is decorated in the art deco or Jungstahl motif employing geometric designs along with the “Eichenlaub,” or leaf, and acorn of the holy oak tree. Its central theme is the face of Adolf Hitler as he looked in the early Kampfzeit (struggle for power!) in the 1920s and 1930s. The likeness is phenomenal! Running one’s fingers across the design one can feel the edges of the subjects throughout. This seems to denote hand engraving although we cannot be sure of that. The box has a cedar bottom and inner lining. It measures 9 1/2 inches long, 4 1/4 inches wide, and 2 1/2 inches deep. It’s a great piece of memorabilia of the turbulent early days of the NS movement. Was it for cigars, jewelry, whatnots??? In any case, it’s just great and certainly rare.
