Adolf Hitler’s Personal Formal large Match Box “Liberated” From The Brown House/Fuhrerbau In Munich By A U.S. Solider Certified By The Gettysburg Museum Of History. A silver Hitler hand hammered box has Hitler’s personal national eagle with his “AH” monogram. It has all the proper hallmarks on the back (see photos). This 3.5″/6″/1.5″ Silver box is from “The Hitler Personal Formal Pattern” Smoker Set. It is the most fancy and most desirable of all the Hitler silver sets. Has a few small dings and slight scratches from use and storage wear but displays very well. (it is very difficult to photograph the brilliance of this silver). This piece was brought home along with several other pieces by U.S. Officer Captain Herman E. Wilkenson of the 11th Field Hospital attached to the 42nd Division (see his notarized letter). The 42nd Division was among the first U.S. troops to enter Munich and they captured the Fuhrerbau and BrownHouse. The BrownHouse was bombed but Hitler’s silver was kept in the basement and was unharmed! The Veteran calls it “Nazi Headquarters” but we are sure it was the basement of the BrownHouse! They kept food and kitchen and serving items there too! There was also a kitchen in the basement for the dinners held next door. This “Formal Pattern” silver was used in the Fuhrerbau next door for fancy state dinners and used when Hitler was present. Hitler did not smoke but the “Smoker Set” that had a cigar box, cigarette box, match box, and candle for lighting was provided for Hitler’s guests. The smoker set pieces is the most rare and most desirable of all. Hitler’s silver was the ultimate war trophy for U.S. soldiers. 100% guaranteed to be authentic complete museum documentation (COA) provided. Offering for one formal Hitler Oyster Fork as pictured. An amazing historical artifact from the 20th century’s most infamous person. Hitler silver always sells very fast when we get them. Don’t miss your chance to own a real museum authenticated Hitler piece with excellent U.S. Veteran provenance. If you ever wanted a Hitler item with very solid U.S. Veteran provenance and history this is as good as it gets, originally purchased from the Vet himself.
