Adolf Hitler’s Personal Formal Pattern Silver Knife Captured From The Eagle’s Nest By A 101st Airborne Soldier. A silver large dinner/luncheon knife with Adolf Hitler’s personal eagle and “AH” monogram with “Greek Key” edge pattern. Used for formal lunches and dinners at The Eagle’s Nest, the Berghof, and the Reich Chancellery. This is the pattern Hitler used for formal state dinners. This pattern was also found at the Brown House in Munich. This knife has all the proper hallmarks (see photos) made of .800 solid silver with a stainless blade. 8 3/4″ inches long (nice big piece). In very good condition (see photos). This piece is well documented as coming from The Eagle’s Nest (Kehlstein Monuntain) near Berchtesgarden in Germany. It was “Liberated” by PFC Clarence L. Overman of the 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne as a trophy of war. PFC Overman was one of the first men to make the trek up to the Eagles’s Nest on May 5th 1945. He and several other men went into the Eagle’s Nest and found a very large group of Hitler’s silver, it was divided up by the Paratroopers by “rolling dice” to “pick pieces” according to Overman’s account. He later mailed his share home. In 1947 he wrote to his former commander Colonel Robert F. Sink about the legality of taking Hitler’s silver as a war trophy and Sink could not provide a clear answer (see photo of Sink’s letter). Also see photos of Overman including a photo of Overman in May 1945 at Hitler’s Berghof. 100% guaranteed to be authentic complete museum documentation (COA) provided. Offering for one formal Hitler knife as pictured. An amazing historical artifact from the 20th century’s most infamous person. Hitler items always sell very fast when we get them. Don’t miss your chance to own a real museum authenticated Hitler piece with U.S. Veteran provenance and coming from the legendary “Eagle’s Nest” taken by a 101st Airborne Paratrooper! The formal pattern is the most ornate and desirable pattern of all the Hitler silver and they are getting very difficult for us to find.
