    Exceedingly Rare Very Early Framed Adolf Hitler Signed Document 1926 Certified By The Gettysburg Museum Of History Historically Important

    $3,650.00
    Exceedingly Rare Very Early Framed Adolf Hitler Signed Document 1926  Certified By The Gettysburg Museum Of History, Historically Important. Several of our customers and friends have been asking for a very historic  Hitler investment grade autograph. Here it is, it does not get more rare and  important when it comes to early NSDAP history than this incredible document. This is a 1926 Hitler signed NSDAP party document. Hitler signatures before 1933 are rare. Hitler signatures in the 1920's are almost unheard of. After Hitler was released from prison after his failed 1923 Beer Hall Putsch the Nazi Party was falling apart and membership was down. It was not until the stock market crashed in 1929 did the party start to take off again. During part of  this period Hitler was temporarily banned from speaking.  Rare and early Hitler signed letter addressed to farmer Wilhelm Holzwarth, who joined the NSDAP in September 1920 and then again in 1925 upon its revival. In 1921, he founded the NSDAP Ortsgruppe in Scheinfeld, which is said to be the oldest Ortsgruppe of the NSDAP in Franconia. In 1923, Holzwarth organized a secret weapons warehouse which would supply guns for the National Socialists for Hitler's beer Hall Putsch. He later visited Landsberg Prison just after Hitler's birthday in 1924. After the re-founding of the NSDAP, Holzwarth again joined the party on March 1, 1925 and received the very low membership number of 20. The letter itself is a thank you for an invitation and apologizes for the late reply, as he was away for a long time.
