He received many gifts
A Gold and Silver Ring (presented to Adolf Hitler in 1941) (Item AH 24-1)
DESCRIPTION: Yes, this IS a Hitler presentation ring presented to him by the German handworkers organization in the head city of that particular movement “Frankfurt Am Main” in 1941. The tradition of German cities making Hitler an honorary citizen is mentioned in several history books usually such an item was a parchment scroll or a wooden box containing such a scroll. On these Hitler pages you will see such a scroll given by the National sports organization to Hitler for it was not only cities but organizations that gave him these token citizenships. The tradition was born out of the fact that Hitler was an Austrian and once he was Chancellor the German cities wanted to honor him as a GERMAN! This tradition also fell to organizations who sought to honor this charismatic leader and often the honors bestowed by such organizations would not only be parchments but sometimes the gifts would be in other forms as well. The parchments would be called ‘Ehrenburgerrecht’ or ‘honorary citizenship’. In the case of this ring, the presentation takes the form of a ring from the city of Frankfurt AM Main that was called ‘the city of the German handworks.’ The legend inside beautifully engraved goes like this—“Ehengabe Der Stadt Des Deutschen handwerks Frankfurt AM Main 1941’ the word, ‘Ehrengabe’ is the key besides the information given us by the man who turned it up. This word ‘Ehrengabe’ seemed to be rather exclusive to gifts and Ehrenbergers to Adolf Hitler. Also, the quality of this ring is stupendous. It is far beyond anything commonly sold or issued in the German Reich. It is solid gold with a highly detailed eagle in its center compartment. The eagle is in silver and is of the old style of the days of the 1st World War (Imperial) Reich. The eagle wears the crown and has the feathers ruffled ready for flight. Around the eagle are hammers and swords. On one side is the symbol of the DAF ‘Deutsche Arbeits Front,’ the parent organization of the Handworkers Verband with its swastika in the cogged wheel. This is in gold and is surrounded by silver oak leaves and acorns all separately set. The other side has the hammer with crossed oak leaves and acorns again surrounded by more silver hand set oak leaves and acorns. Did Hitler ever wear this ring? As a historian I will say emphatically NO! He was very plain in his attire and never wore a ring or any other form of jewelry. He left that to Hermann Goring! He did not favor gold at all and gifts from him never contained gold. Thousands of gifts were bestowed on him from supporters and ardent admirers all over the world but most of these items were never used by him and most were never even seen by the Fuhrer they were usually received by the SS Leibstandarte Sturmbahnfuhrer Wilhelm Woltz Chancery secretary who tagged the gift and entered the information into a ledger that was shown to the Fuhrer and he generally instructed Woltz that a thank you card be sent to the gift giver that sometimes was hand signed the person who sent it was entered into that ledger. Does this lessen the importance ? I would not think so it still would be a Hitler Possession and among the finest items received and registered although the register ledger is unfortunately “Gone with the wind” I'm afraid. The ring size is about 11 or 12. Our no.1 specialty has been finger rings for many years and we have been working on a book that we intend to publish one day, and this piece will be in all probability the cover piece and the greatest featured ring of the volume. I would venture to say it is the finest and most beautiful ring we have ever seen in Third Reich jewelry, it is absolutely unsurpassed in beauty and vast importance.

Mess Hall Flatware from the Elite
Fuhrer Begleit Brigade
(Item AH 24-2 & WEHR 30-6)

DESCRIPTION: These ultra rare items are to us an interesting phenomenon in that an interesting personality Major General Otto Remer commanded this elite unit. This was the man who almost single handedly as an “Oberst” (Major) with his loyal troops were ultimately responsible of completely foiling the July 20th 1944 assassination plot against Hitler. He was the hero of the whole affair as seen from (sane) German historical perspective, If you see the extravagant film Valkurie” he was the officer who upon orders from the Wehrmacht high Command was sent to arrest Doctor Goebbels, but after the little Doctor handed him the phone, he heard on the other end, “Hello Oberst Remer- Do you now who I am? Do you recognize my voice?” It was then that Remer knew that Hitler was alive and he now knew who needed to be apprehended. In the movie, it is he who walks up to all the assembled big wigs including General Beck and announces, “You are all under arrest for high treason!” The history of this armored brigade, later an armored division, is fascinating 1939-1945 to find out more about this “Elite of the Elite” unit go to Wikipedia and put in “Fuhrer Begleit Brigade” and read their fantastic story. The flatware pieces that we have acquired are from the mess hall dining sets of this illustrious group. We do not know just what period they are from. Whether they are from the time when they were the personal guard unit for the Fuhrer or when they were the army group (not SS) that had the original duty of guarding him or when they became an armored Division. The set in all probability came from the garrison H.Q. in Fallsingbostel next to Hitler’s (Wolf’s lair) Rastenburg East Prussia. There are knives forks, spoons and a set of bread tongs. These pieces bear the mark of the “Fuhrerstandarte” the Reichskanzlers personal flag. This is the flag with the four corner eagles with wreathed swastika in its center. The pieces are in heavy silver plate and are all in very fine condition. We are breaking them up for the reason that there is not what could be called a complete set here although we do have 11 pieces initially. They are the most rare of all Third Reich flatware out there. There is a better chance by far to find a piece of Hitler’s personal formal silver dinnerware than to ever find one of these. By the way, Hitler himself would often be an honored guest at the FBB H.Q. and the likelihood of one of these utensils being used by Their Boss is very good. They certainly are a find! Who but Germania would have them? Real ones that is! The listing of what we have follows:

Fuhrer Begleit Brigade – Formal Mess Hall Flatware (see description above)

Hitler Champagne Glass (Item AH 24-4)

DESCRIPTION: First of all, although this was an actual possession of Adolf Hitler you must be given to understand that the Fuhrer was a tea-totaler but then why would this particular offering be a champagne glass from Hitler's Berghof Alps Mountain retreat at Obersalzberg high above the town of Bertesgaden in Lower Bavaria? In May of 1904 at age 15, Adolf Hitler received the Catholic sacrament of confirmation in the Cathedral, this was his first taste of alcohol. As a young boy he once entertained the idea of becoming a priest but by the time he was confirmed he was rather bored and seemed uninterested in the faith. Hitler got terrible marks in his first semester at the new school he attended: failing math, German, French and even got a poor grade for handwriting but he improved during his second semester and was told he might even graduate if he first took a special make-up exam in the fall, but then he suffered from a bleeding lung ailment. After he regained his health he passed the exam in September 1905 and celebrated with fellow students by actually getting drunk. He wound up the next morning on the side of a road, awakened by a milk woman. It has been said that after that experience, that he swore off alcohol and never drank again. This was only partially true because in the 1920’s when he was speaking mainly in beer halls with the hard drinking Bavarians in Munich and other towns and cities in Bavaria he would feel compelled to share in Munich’s Golden Brew to be not only sociable but to be “one of the kameraden.”  A German especially in Munich who didn’t drink a beer was practically a non-entity and at the very least would not be particularly believed nor trusted in his political aims and agenda. So, like it or not, the Fuhrer had to go “bottoms up” on that glass of suds from time to time. However, he never touched anything else such as Schnaps, wine or champagne and the occasional stein of beer ceased all together after he rose to ultimate power in 1933.  Although he was a vegetarian and non-smoker, he didn’t countenance prohibition of others enjoying their pot roast and sausages in his presence at dinners and state functions. Smoking however was strictly forbidden not only when he was present, but he also expressly forbade smoking in any of his offices, the Reichschancellery, the Braun house and of course the Obersalzberg (Berghof). As to the champagne glass, Hitler was also cogniscent of the fact that his generals, his advisors, his inner circle would always want to toast in the New Year, the victories, celebrated heroes, finished projects and other festive occasions so, the SS men, the political leaders, the party leaders, Goring, Hess, Goebbels, Bermann, Himmler, etc., would lift the glass with utterances of Ein Volk, Ein Riech, Ein Fuhrer and Seig Heil! and drink the bubbly in exhaltation while the Fuhrer would in all probability join in the toast but his champagne glass would be filled with a fine Rhine valley grape juice (non-alcoholic). So, could Adolf Hitler ever have touched lips to his glass? Your guess is as good as mine but it looms possible and probable at various times as there was much to celebrate in 1939, for instance and up into 1943. The glass in just one of the types used at the Berghof and several other places throughout the Reich where Hitler had dining facilities. This glass is approximately 7" high with a beautiful pinched glass stem with six indentations about half way up. Simple, yet artistically elegant.  The mouth opening measures about 2 ½" as does the base. We would call this Bavarian crystal and the condition is perfect. The Hitler style personal eagle is hand engraved with exquisite detail with the letters A.H. on either side of the wreathed swastika in the talons of the eagle This is basically the same eagle as found on the Allach porcelain plates found on our site at AH 3-1 and on the Adolf Hitler formal silver flatware, this piece is much more historically important and rare than any of the other Hitler pieces; however, and to find one intact is very fortunate indeed for the buyer.

Book (Item AH 24-5)

DESCRIPTION: This is one of the most sought after books on Hitler that can now and then be found but not easy to find at all, long out of print.  We have seen copies advertised at $949.99.

Both book and dust jacket are brand new with beautiful pictorials both front and back. It is a large coffee table volume with 260 pages crammed full of pictures many in full color. This is the book every Hitler memorabilia collector should have but unfortunately few copies ever show up in good condition. This won’t last so order now! The book measures 11 ¼" x 8 ¼".

PRICE: $750.00 -- a brilliant investment
