  • Extremely Rare Extra Large Adolf Hitler’s Personal Silver Double Wine Bucket Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified

    SOLD Extremely Rare Adolf Hitler's Personal Silver Double Wine Bucket Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. "We drank Hitler's Champagne". One of the rarest of all the Adolf Hitler service silver is the "double Champagne bucket" for 2 bottles to be served together. As far as we know there are only 3 of these that still survive today. Made by WMF or "Wurttenburg Metal Fabrik" most items that were WMF marked were recovered at The Berghof (Hitler's Home) at Obersalzberg near Berchtesgaden. The silver bucket has an engraved Hitler National Eagle with a Wreath Swastika and Hitler's personal "AH" monogram on both sides. These were made with both wooden handles like this and more common (but also very rare) metal handles. This is in fact one of the the rarest and the most desirable of all Hitler silver items. This was recovered most likely from the Berghof by a U.S. soldier in May of 1945.  It is in our opinion the best  and most collectible of the Hitler silver. This huge bucket is in good used condition some scratches and smudges. This wine bucket has all the correct maker marks and hallmarks for the piece. The outside surface is bright and polished the bottom and inside has some tarnishing that could be polished if the new owner desires.  Adolf Hitler Silver was the most desirable of all war trophies. Every U.S. soldier wanted to bring home something of Hitler’s. Hitler’s silver was the choice item. Unlike silver eating utensils that had many in a set the large serving pieces where much fewer (and hard to carry). Many U.S. soldiers who where lucky enough to get a hold of Hitler’s silver opted for the less cumbersome eating utensils. Many times only officers or soldiers with access to motor vehicles carried big pieces home. David Webster from "Easy Company" 506 PIR 101st Airborne (Band Of Brothers) wrote an article in the 1950's about drinking Hitler's Champagne and it was portrayed in the series "Band Of Brothers". One of the classic memorable events of the end of WWII. This items was very difficult to photograph because of the bright shine of the silver (it looks much better in person) 100% guaranteed to be authentic complete museum documentation (COA) provided. An amazing historical artifact from the  20th century’s most infamous person Adolf Hitler. Do Not Miss this once in lifetime offering!

    Original WWII German WAFFEN SS GEBIRGS-DIVISION DER SS “HANDSCHAR” Collar Tab Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified

    $195.00
    Original WWII German Waffen SS  Waffen-Gebirgs Division Der SS HandscharCollar Tab Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran.  In August 1929 the SS incorporated the wear of rank collar tabs on the left side of the collar and unit collar tabs on the right side of the collar of the service tunic. The SS rank collar tabs were originally adopted from the earlier rank collar tabs as utilized by the SA, Sturmabteilung, (Storm Troops). The SS collar tabs remained in usage through-out the war with a couple of minor alterations and numerous additions. EM/NCO’s collar tabs were piped in twisted white cord from their original inception until to October 1934 when the piping was modified to alternating twisted black and silver/aluminum cord piping. The final modification, in August 1940, eliminated all piping from the EM/NCO’s collar tabs. On February 10TH 1943 Hitler ordered the formation of a new Waffen-SS Division to be manned by volunteers from the Independent State of Croatia. This new division would eventually evolve into the 13.Waffen-Gebirgs-Division der SS "Handschar" (kroat.Nr.1), and was primarily manned from Moslems from the Bosnia-Herzegovina region of Croatia, with a cadre of German personnel from the 7. SS-Freiwillingen-Gebirgs-Division "Prinz Eugen". Due to the racial makeup of the divisional personnel Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler forbade wear of the SS runes on the collar insignia and it was decided that another suitable symbol be utilized and the distinctive collar insignia for divisional personnel was introduced on April 30TH 1943. Of Note: It is believed that SS-Obergruppenführer Gottlob Berger came up with the design of the collar tab and the name "Handschar". The "Handschar" refers to the scimitar featured on the collar tab and is meant to represent the blade carried by Turkish police in the Balkan region for centuries and was also featured on the Bosnian coat-of-arms during the reign of the Hapsburg Empire.   Black wool construction, right hand side, unit designation collar tab featuring a machine embroidered hand clutching a scimitar, with a canted swastika positioned just below the blade, all in silvery/grey cotton threads. The collar tab is mounted on a buckram backing. Superb, untouched original. . In excellent condition. A very reasonable price for an SS item.  Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided. Certified by The Gettysburg Museum of History. 100% guaranteed to be authentic pre-1945. The Gettysburg Museum of History does not support or condone Adolf Hitler or the Nazi Party and is only offering this as a historic relic.
