    3x Original Rare WWII German Soldier’s Wehrpass With Good Early War Dates Recorded Certified

    $129.00
    3x Original Rare WWII German WWII solider's Wehrpass With Good early War dates recorded. A very important German Military document. When individuals received their registration notice they were to report to the appropriate recruitment center where they would be issued a Wehrpass, (Military Pass), until they were inducted into active duty. Starting in the autumn of 1939, when an individual was inducted into active military service the Wehrpass was exchanged at the recruitment office for the Soldbuch, (Pay Book), which remained in the recipients possession as his official military identification document. The recruitment office would retain the Wehrpass and chronicle the individual’s active service record in it. The Wehrpass was issued in three, slightly different, variants with minor modifications with the first pattern being circa 1934-1938, the second pattern circa 1938-1945 and the third pattern circa 1942-1945. Generally if the individual was killed in battle the Wehrpass would be forwarded to his next-of-kin as a memento of his service time. Of Interest: The Reich conscription laws of 1935 dictated that each of the three branches of service would be allocated a percentage of the available recruits according to their manpower requirements with the army being allotted the lions share of roughly 66% of eligible personnel followed by the Luftwaffe who were accorded roughly 25% with the Kriegsmarine receiving the remaining 9% of personnel. from a solider making this a very historical artifact. There are 2 different styles, some are "de-Nazified" a practice seen on many. One the photo was removed. A lot of history and research potential here folks.  And like so many WWII documents most were destroyed.  in fair-good condition. Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided.

  • Original Rare WWII German Waffen SS Panzer Grenadier’s Wehrpass With Good War Dates Recorded Certified

    SOLD Original Rare WWII German Waffen SS Panzer Grenadier's Wehrpass With Good War dates recorded. A very important German Military document. When individuals received their registration notice they were to report to the appropriate recruitment center where they would be issued a Wehrpass, (Military Pass), until they were inducted into active duty. Starting in the autumn of 1939, when an individual was inducted into active military service the Wehrpass was exchanged at the recruitment office for the Soldbuch, (Pay Book), which remained in the recipients possession as his official military identification document. The recruitment office would retain the Wehrpass and chronicle the individual’s active service record in it. The Wehrpass was issued in three, slightly different, variants with minor modifications with the first pattern being circa 1934-1938, the second pattern circa 1938-1945 and the third pattern circa 1942-1945. Generally if the individual was killed in battle the Wehrpass would be forwarded to his next-of-kin as a memento of his service time. Of Interest: The Reich conscription laws of 1935 dictated that each of the three branches of service would be allocated a percentage of the available recruits according to their manpower requirements with the army being allotted the lions share of roughly 66% of eligible personnel followed by the Luftwaffe who were accorded roughly 25% with the Kriegsmarine receiving the remaining 9% of personnel. So less than 9% were SS. This is from a real combat SS solider making this a very historical artifact. And like so many WWII documents most were destroyed. Especially SS, people wanted no association with the SS after the war so few survived and SS items are HIGHLY collectible and desirable by collectors and historians. A very rare find! Most SS records are in the U.S. National Archives making this a very researchable item. in good condition. Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided. Certified by The Gettysburg Museum of History. 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.
