Historic World War II Era Iron Chest with Schutzstaffel/Germanic Pagan Designs Attributed as being Produced for SS Chief Heinrich Himmler at the Dachau Concentration Camp

Lot 732: Historic World War II Era Iron Chest with Schutzstaffel/Germanic Pagan Designs Attributed as being Produced for SS Chief Heinrich Himmler at the Dachau Concentration Camp

by Rock Island Auction Company

April 24, 2015, 9:00 AM CST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $10,000 - $15,000

Description: Historic World War II Era Iron Chest with Schutzstaffel/Germanic Pagan Designs Attributed as being Produced for SS Chief Heinrich Himmler at the Dachau Concentration Camp Measuring 10 1/4 inches wide, 3 3/4 inches tall and 7 7/8 inches deep, this chest is constructed from iron, with heavy rivets adorning the front and legs, a pair of simple hinges on the back, and thick square feet with spaces for round pads (absent). On the front is an engraved and cut-through Nazi eagle, and the edges of the lid have a recurring pattern of 3 serrations on all four sides. On top of the lid are the words "Meine/Ahnen" (My Ancestors) in quarter inch thick three dimensional iron lettering, a 2 inch wide "double sig" circled rune in the lower left, and a 2 3/4 inch wide and tall irminsul column backed by a sunwheel swastika in the upper right corner. The irminsul or "mighty pillar" was associated with ancient Germanic practices and was a core element of Karl Maria Wiligut's Irminism or Irminschaft, the particular brand of Ariosophy that served as the fighting core of Himmler's neo-paganistic rituals and symbolism for the SS. The interior is lined entirely with hardwood. Notes from the consignor state that this chest was produced at the Dachau Concentration Camp for Heinrich Himmler. Originally an unused munitions factory converted to hold political prisoners in 1933, Dachau served as the prototype for the entire concentration camp system and continue to operated until April of 1945. Housing a mixture of criminals (in both the "political" and "felon" senses of the word), groups oppressed by the Nazi Party (Jews, Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals, and so forth), prisoners of war and foreign nationals, running the spectrum from German princes down to common street criminals, Dachau was a hotbed of forced labor, with a variety of sub-camps established to put prisoners to work for the Nazi war machine, including an elaborate plot to build an underground factory for the production of Messerschmitt Me 262 fighter jets. While no documentation is included, the symbols on the chest would be of relevance to the SS chief, who toured the camp on more than one occasion, Dachau would have the tools and men to make the item, and the camp was operational for several years before Wiligut was discovered to be an institutionalized schizophrenic megalomaniac and kicked off Himmler's staff, which lends credibility to the proposition. Manufacturer: None Model: None BBL: Stock: Gauge: Finish: Grips: Serial Number: Class: Other Condition: Very good, with some scattered brown spotting overall. A lock or latch was once present and was forcibly removed, cracking the front panel of the inner lining and requiring a glue repair, and a small chip is absent from a corner of the lid panel. A well constructed chest attributed to the prototype concentration camp of Nazi Germany.

Ulysses S. Grant Autograph Letter Signed

Lot 49124: Ulysses S. Grant Autograph Letter Signed

by Heritage Auctions

April 9, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $4,000 - $6,000

Description: Ulysses S. Grant Autograph Letter Signed "U. S. Grant Lt. Gen." to War Secretary Edwin Stanton. One page, 7.5" x 7.25", City Point, Virginia, February 15, 1865. As the Civil War wound down, the Confederate Agent of Exchange notified General Grant that several Confederate officers were still imprisoned in a POW camp on Johnson's Island. To look into the matter, Grant writes this letter to Secretary Stanton, asking him to direct General William Hoffman to send him a list of confined rebel prisoners so he can see if "such complaints are well founded." A stain to the upper left does not affect any text. Light mat-burn around the borders of the letter. Grant wrote the letter on the back of stationery reading, "Head Quarters Armies of the United States." Written in another hand below that is "City Point, Va. Feby 15th, 1865 / Lieut. Col. W. S. Duff / 2d Illinois Artillery / Colonel." Minor staining and mounting remnants on the reverse. Smoothed folds. The body of the letter reads in full: "Hon. E. M. Stanton, Sec. of War, Washington. The rebel Agt. of Exchange says he understands that Campbell, Mars and others are still in irons at Johnson's Island. Will you please direct Gen. Hoffman to furnish me a list of rebel prisoners who are still so confined and under what orders so that I may know whether such complaints are well founded." For three years, the 300-acre Johnson's Island located off the coast of Lake Erie near Sandusky, Ohio, held Confederate prisoners, most being officers. In all, over 15,000 Rebels spent time on the island from the time of its opening in April 1862 until it was closed in September 1865. General William Hoffman, who Grant directed to send a "list of rebel prisoners," was the Commissary-General of Prisoners. Three days after writing this letter, Grant received a response from General Hoffman which said that "the only prisoner in Irons at Johnson's Island is a Citizen prisoner Thomas F. Berry who was so confined last night for killing Lt. H. Morgan a prisoner of War" (Ulysses S. Grant, The Papers of Ulysses S. Grant: November 16, 1864-February 20, 1865, Volume 13, [SIU Press, 1967], 441). "Campbell" is Confederate General Alexander William Campbell, who was captured while in western Tennessee in 1863 recruiting and supervising elections. He had been exchanged earlier in December 1864.

April 9, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $1,000 - $1,500

Description: [Gettysburg] and [Camp Letterman]. Jonathan Letterman: Group of Six Letters Including Two Jonathan Letterman Autograph Letters Signed. Major Jonathan Letterman (1824-1872), the "Father of Battlefield Medicine," served first as medical director of the Army of the Potomac and, later, as inspector of hospitals in the Department of the Susquehanna until his resignation from the army in December 1864. In a two page letter, dated August 29, 1863, written to Maj. Henry Janes, who was in charge of field hospitals at Gettysburg, less than two months after the terrible battle, Letterman asks if the additional twenty surgeons he requested five days after the battle had ever arrived. He continues by asking how his namesake, Camp Letterman, a temporary hospital established there to house the nearly 21,000 Union and Confederate wounded, was flourishing. On October 29, he wrote a second letter to Dr. Janes asking "if W.O. Marshall Co. G 4th Alabama Regt. was recd into any of the Hospitals under your charge." Also included are several additional letters regarding the potential release of Private George L. Hadley, a native of New Hampshire who served in the 3rd Alabama Infantry, was wounded at Gettysburg, and was now a Confederate prisoner of war held at Camp Letterman. His father sent a letter, dated November 22, to Dr. Janes asking for him to "exert your influence in his favor" to the Commissary General of Prisoners. One month later, on December 21, Dr. Janes wrote to a Col. Hoffman of the Commissary General of Prisoners regarding the young man, stating that "during his stay in Gettysburg his conduct was exemplary." Hadley himself sent a letter, dated December 30, stating that he was in Baltimore and that he is "very anxious to know what is to become of me." Unfortunately for Hadley, Dr. Janes received word from the Office Commissary General of Prisoners on January 6, 1864, informing him that the "case of Private Geo. L. Hadley . . . a prisoner of war, has been submitted to the Secretary of War by whom it has not been favorably considered." Aside from the usual folds and expected toning, the letters are in near fine condition.

by Jerusalem of Gold Ltd.

Jerusalem, Israel

Description: Special issue of the Shaarei Tzedek Hospital News, published at the end of the Six Day War, describes the exemplary coping of the hospital during the war, including treatment of 450 wounded and performing 210 surgeries under fire. In addition to the stories of the wounded, also discussed are important guests who visited the hospital such as Rabbi Jakubowicz, Rachel Yanait Ben-Zvi, Rabbi Aryeh Levin and others. The Shaarei Tzedek Hospital stood in the old Jaffa Street. It was the first hospital built outside the Old City, and was the westernmost point of the city. The hospital was built by Jews leaving Germany and set new standards of care, hygiene and modernity never before seen in the Middle East. During the First World War the hospital served as an emergency room for wounded Turks, and in it the surrender to the British was signed. During the War of Independence, the hospital filled an important need for those injured during the war. During the Six Day War the building was shelled, but worked around the clock treating the wounded soldiers. The sheet is lined with a variety of pictures showing the challenges of the hospital during the war - from wounded soldiers to prisoners to newborns 4 pp. Condition: Very good.

Union General William D. Whipple Military Service Archi

Lot 49095: Union General William D. Whipple Military Service Archi

by Heritage Auctions

April 9, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $5,000 - $7,000

Description: Union General William D. Whipple Military Service Archive, dating from 1854 through 1865 and containing photographs, ledgers, letterpress books, and more. William Whipple (1826-1902) of Nelson, New York, graduated from West Point in 1851. Before the Civil War, he served on the frontier in New Mexico and Texas. He was at Indianola, Texas, when Texas Confederates captured the town (Whipple was arrested). During the Civil War he moved up the ranks to brigadier general of volunteers in 1863. After the war, he was appointed aide-de-camp to General-in-Chief of the Army William Sherman. This archive contains three photographs. One is a sixth-plate encased ambrotype featuring Whipple in uniform prior to the Civil War. The case bears moderate wear. A ninth-plate encased ambrotype features Whipple's wife, Caroline Whipple (clean with only moderate wear to the case). Additionally included is a cabinet card featuring the general in uniform. Two Civil War-dated documents are included. One is a telegraph date June 26, 1863, to Whipple expressing "no objection to your remaining as chief of staff with Genl. Dana if agreeable to yourself," signed by Major General Robert C. Schenck. The other is dated May 1865, when Whipple was brevetted a brigadier general. Included is his appointment signed by Secretary of War Edwin Stanton Military (Washington, May 13, 1865) appointing Whipple for "gallant and meritorious service in the Atlanta Campaign and in the battles of Nashville, Brigadier General, by Brevet" from December 16, 1865. Stanton's signature is large and bold. Six journal/ledgers are included. One contains written in ink on the cover, "Lieut. Whipple 3rd Infy. A.A.G. & A.A.C.S. Fort Defiance, N.M." This is dated October 31, 1859, and includes military lists, such as "Clothing Camp & Garrison Equipage" and "Quartermaster Stores." Loose binding and some pages. Whipple served in the defense of Fort Defiance against Indian attacks later in 1860. Another bound journal contains military letter drafts (8" x 12.75") dated from September 20, 1860 through April 29, 1861. Most letters were written from Texas (Fort Bliss, Fort Clark, and Indianola). As the Civil War began, Whipple was in Indianola, Texas. One journal letter dated April 29, 1861, is about the Star of the West, a steamship sent by the U.S. Government to pick up seven military companies at Indianola, Texas. Colonel Earl Van Dorn, however, captured the ship on April 18 near Matagorda Bay. The ship was later taken to New Orleans and used as a Confederate vessel. Whipple writes in this letter from Indianola, "After the seizure and taking away of the 'Star of the West' chartered the schooners Urbana and Horace to take the troops out of the country and having informed Majr. Libiley of the arrangement I went to La Vaca in the evening to endeavor to get a brig then lying there." Also on the 29th, Whipple wrote Earl Van Dorn, "C.S.A.," concerning his arrest by the rebels: "I have come to the conclusion to adhere to my first determination not to give any parole or promise not to bear arms &c. against the Confederate States of America. I do this from a conviction in my mind that situates as I was at this place in the execution of a peaceable officer conferring benefits upon the Inhabitants of this town your government had no right to arrest me as a prisoner of war - at least not until due notice had been given me to suspend my functions and get out of the way." Whipple continues by advising Van Dorn on the "custom of Civilized Nations." Most of the journal consists of empty pages. Also included is a leather-bound letterpress book (8.5" x 5") containing less than ten Civil War-dated letters (November 26, 1863, through October 5, 1864) from Whipple written from places such as the headquarters of the Department of the Cumberland in Tennessee. Another journal (8" x 9.5") contains monthly military summaries dated 1856 from Fillmore (ten pages). The cover has detached. Another leather-bound journal (3.5" x 6") contains sixty-two pages of penciled entries of an expedition up the Gila River with good content on the wildlife, "Aztec pueblos," and the environment. It includes a penciled sketch of an area along the expedition. Many pages have detached. Another leather-bound journal (4" x 6") begins in June 1854 and contains various entries, some for illness cures. It also contains accounts kept by Whipple as a second lieutenant at Fort Fillmore, New Mexico, as well as numerous "Remarks" about the environment at certain locations, such as the location of water and the quality of the grass. Most of the journal contains blank pages. The leather covers are well-worn. A nine-page draft of a letter to the president (n.p., n.d.) asks for an "appointment to the vacancy which will be thus created and herewith present reasons why such appointment should be given me." Also part of this archive is a small leather pouch (2.75" x 3.75") holding numerous calling cards, an 1895 train schedule, and more. Whipple's name is engraved on the leather cover, which is well-worn. In addition are numerous military letter drafts from Whipple, dated between December 1835 and January 1860. Whipple writes these letters to various people (generals and other officers, judges, and more) from Fort Fillmore, New Mexico, and Fort Defiance, New Mexico. Also included is Whipple's copy of the Narrative of the Surrender of a Command of U.S. Forces at Fort Fillmore, N.M., in July, A.D. 1861, by James Cooper McKee, printed in New York in January 1881 (30 pages); Whipple's excised signatures of Whipple and his wife; an engraving of the general; and numerous calling cards.

Autograph Album of Confederate Prisoners at Fort Warren

Lot 49063: Autograph Album of Confederate Prisoners at Fort Warren

by Heritage Auctions

April 9, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $5,000 - $7,000

Description: Autograph Album of Confederate Prisoners at Fort Warren, dated December 1861 through February 1862 and containing the signatures (and sometimes sentiments) of 124 Confederate POWs. Many of the POWs were important civilian, military, and political prisoners. Located on an island in the Boston Harbor, Fort Warren was known for treating its prisoners humanely. The first page reads in manuscript, "Autographs of Prisoners Confined at Fort Warren Decr. 12th 1861. Robert Renwick Baltimore Md. Released on Parole Feby 10th 1862." The album measures 4.5" x 7" and consists of alternating quires of green and yellow paper. The boards bear the original brown cloth with "Autographs" in gilt; some expected wear. Housed in a custom-made marbled clamshell case with leather spine. In October 1861, Robert Renwick, a cabinetmaker from Baltimore, was arrested for aiding the Southern cause (possessing a large number of concealed weapons and enlisting men into the Confederate Army). He was paroled February 10, 1862, but while on the island prison, he acquired the signatures of 124 fellow prisoners. During Renwick's short time in the prison, a number of important civilian, military, and political prisoners were imprisoned there, such as John Slidell and James Mason, who had been arrested when their blockade-running vessel, transporting the two to Europe for a Confederate diplomatic mission, was intercepted by a Union vessel. Also included are the signatures of Baltimore Mayor George W. Brown and Baltimore Police Commissioners John Davis, Charles Howard, William Gatchell, and George Kane, all purged from their offices in the important border state of Maryland for holding pro-Confederate sympathies. Also included are the signatures of naval officers, many who refused to take an oath of allegiance to the U.S. after their ships came into port. Flag Officer Samuel Barron Sr., Commodore William Ward, and William Glassell, the pioneer of submarine warfare, are three examples. The signatures of three scarce Confederate Marines also appear: Robert Tansill, John Tattnall, and Thomas Wilson. Other signatures in the album include thirty-four Confederate officers from North Carolina military units (most from the 7th North Carolina Regiment) who surrendered to Gen. Benjamin Butler at Fort Hatteras in August 1861. These were some of the earliest Confederate prisoners of the war. After Butler arrested them, he set a precedent that captured Confederate soldiers would be treated as prisoners of war and not as traitors. Other prominent Southern figures who signed the book include the following: General John Pegram, Kentucky Governor Charles Morehead, and Charles Faulkner (Stonewall Jackson's A.A.G.). The soldiers who signed were doctors, lawyers, merchants, farmers, mechanics, spies, editors, Confederate recruiting officers, blockade runners, and more. Below are the signatures of members of the Legislature of Maryland at Fort Warren: John M. Brewer, Thomas J. Claggett, Robert M. Denison, William G. Harrison, T. Lawrence Jones, Andrew Kessler, Andrew A. Lynch M.D., Dr. Charles Macgill, J.W. Maxwell, Bernard Mills M.D., Charles H. Pitts, Philip F. Rasin, William E, Salmon, Lawrence Sangston, T.

by Antiquarian Traders Inc

April 1, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $10,625 - $12,500

Description: Height: 59 in. (149.86 cm)Width: 46 in. (116.84 cm)Depth: 4 in. (10.16 cm)Country of Origin: USAStyle: Military EmbroideryCondition: OriginalYear: c. 1905Beautifully framed antique American silk embroidery framed under glass. The embroidery features an eagle crest with glass eye, metallic threading for anchor, stars and stripes shield panel. Bottom banner reads 'E Pluribus Unum.' Painting on silk in lower panel with silver threaded framing around it. The main scene of depicts George Washington crossing the Deleware River.At the end of the 19th century the United States was rising as a world power. The U.S. Navy cruised the oceans to Show The Flag to emerging Far East countries. Merchants in the 'Treaty Port' cities of Hong Kong, Tokyo and Manila commissioned artisans to adapt their skills to create beautiful low relief embroideries for sailors and officers who visited their ports. They mixed gold, silver and copper silk thread along with hand painted panels of their ships to create a highly effective memorial of their visits to these ports.Embroideries featured their national symbols in impressive compositions with lovely detail work. They came in various sizes and designs. The ones owned by AT represent the largest and most impressive of those ever created. These pieces featured their ships done in one off original paint, a series of flags from the different Treaty countries, a photograph of the young sailor and often times a photo of his captain.Most were special ordered and turned out in an efficient fashion in time for the sailor's departure. These exceptional creations were the highest expression of this art form. They were also the most expensive and delicate works of the genre and consequently few were produced.This finely done highly detailed original guache painting depicts a detailed historical scene of George Washington's crossing of the Delaware River, which occurred on the night of December 25-26, 1776, during the American Revolutionary War. This was the first move in a surprise attack organized by George Washington against the Hessian forces in Trenton, New Jersey on the morning of December 26. Planned in partial secrecy, Washington led a column of Continental Army troops across the icy Delaware River in a logistically challenging and dangerous operation. Other planned crossings in support of the operation were either called off or ineffective, but this did not prevent Washington from surprising and defeating the troops of Johann Rall quartered in Trenton. The army crossed the river back to Pennsylvania, this time burdened by prisoners and military stores taken as a result of the battle.This rare example is exceptional in its size, condition and inclusion of a fine original painting a very famous historical scene. We have presented it in a magnificent gilt frame so that it can hang in a man's library as a piece of art.

Historic Silver Nazi Trophy, Inscribed to Nazi War Production Chief and Personal Architect to Adolf Hitler Albert Speer for His Work on the 1933 Nuremberg Rally

Lot 699: Historic Silver Nazi Trophy, Inscribed to Nazi War Production Chief and Personal Architect to Adolf Hitler Albert Speer for His Work on the 1933 Nuremberg Rally

by Rock Island Auction Company

April 24, 2015, 9:00 AM CST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $40,000 - $60,000

Description: Historic Silver Nazi Trophy, Inscribed to Nazi War Production Chief and Personal Architect to Adolf Hitler Albert Speer for His Work on the 1933 Nuremberg Rally Measuring 17 1/2 inches tall, 8 1/2 inches deep and 13 inches wide, the first aspect of this trophy that catches the eye is the prominent Nazi eagle perched on top, which features a 13 inch wingspan and a height of 7 inches including the bottom supporter, with the hallmarks of a crescent moon, Imperial crown, "835" and a small eagle on the tail feather section. In a deviation from what is normally seen from German statuary, this eagle was not cast as a single piece, but hand-assembled from multiple individual sheets of 83.5% silver, with the front of the eagle being approximately 8 layers deep to make the facial details and the layers of feathers on the body. The wing is similarly layered, with a solid piece forming the base of the entire wingspan, raised ribs to define the primaries, pierced-through panels forming the coverts and a four layer assembly of feathers on the leading edge. The wreath is stood-off from the base ring and the swastika lifted from the same ring by a hidden support, giving both a sense of depth and dimension missing from the typical solid-cast Nazi statuary. The base for the eagle shows strong elements of Greco-Roman architecture, with a rectangular panel banded in silver Greek key panels with a hand-engraved "sunwheel" pattern swastika decorated bolt on each of the corners, a set of 7 5/8 inch tall fluted columns providing support, and a stepped base with similar banding. A fifth column, bearing the same hallmarks as the eagle, is in the center, silver with niello accents. Each side has a stripe of raised oak leaves, the front a niello sunwheel over the raised lettering "pg/Albert/Speer", and the rear having a raised niello-accented "winged Nazi hammer" icon over the inscription "IN GEDENKEN AN DIE/ZUSAMMENARBEIT/AM/GROSSEN ADLER/DES/REICHSPARTEITAGES/1933/DER/REICHSTAND/DES DEUTSCHEN/HANDWERKS", which roughly translates "In remembrance of collaborating on the Great Eagle for the Reichs Party Days of 1933, from the Imperial Guild of German Handworks". The Reich Party Days (also known as the Nuremberg Rallies) were a combination of nationwide conferences and political events, held at Nuremberg with few exceptions. While they predated the rise of the Nazi Party they took on a new grandeur starting with the 1933 rally, titled the "Rally of Triumph" in reference to the recent appointment of Adolf Hitler to Chancellor of Germany. Albert Speer, a member of the Party who handled the renovation of the Headquarters in Berlin, was approached by the committee planning the rally to submit designs. When no one organizing the thing wanted to take responsibility for green-lighting his work, Speer was told to go to Hitler personally and get approval. Not only did Hitler approve, Speer received his first national-level post to coordinate the artistic and technical matters for the Rally, a post he would continue to hold in later years. One of the elements assembled for the 1933 rally was the Great Eagle to be mounted on the podium used by all the speakers at the rally. Instead of getting a large cast or painted piece, Speer tapped the Guild to create a hand-made eagle for the display. Reportedly, after the Guild made this trophy for Speer in appreciation for giving them the project, Speer gave the trophy back to be displayed in a prominent location in their memorial hall, which was visited by souvenir-hunting soldiers in the late days of the war. The Rally, and Speer's work on it, were originally recorded by Leni Riefenstahl for her propaganda film "Der Sieg des Glaubens" (The Triumph of Faith), which prominently featured Ernest Rohm and his SA; when Rohm was purged, so was the film, which was believed lost until a copy emerged in Britain, though Riefenstahl was able to recycle much of her cinematography for the 1934 Party Rally film Triumph of the Will. Speer's star would continue to rise following the 1933 Rally, being responsible for the German Pavilion at the 1937 World's Fair, the 1938 renovation of the Reichs Chancellery, and eventually the head of all German war production following the death of Fritz Todt. Brought before the tribunal at Nuremberg for his connection to the Nazi war machine and the use of slave labor, he was the only top ranking Nazi to express open remorse and regret for their actions. Serving his full twenty-year sentence in Spandau Prison, Speer managed to avoid a de-Nazification trial which could have resulted in the confiscation of his property; as a result, the majority of artifacts related to him were retained by his family instead of being destroyed by the West Germans or making it to the collector's market. Manufacturer: None Model: None BBL: Stock: Gauge: Finish: Grips: Serial Number: Class: Other Condition: Very fine, with a few dings and scuffs, most of which lend credence to the notion that some GI took the trophy apart to make it fit in a duffle bag. The silver overall shows a fine dark color, with a few scattered dings and the banding on the two sides of the top panel coming slightly loose. A few of those dings are on the back of the inscribed panel, which would be a tough place to hit with the trophy assembled. A few circular scuffs are present in the varnish of the wood around the bases of the columns, suggesting they were rotated during disassembly. A fine demonstration of the German silver-workers craft, inscribed to one of the top men in Nazi Germany.

A letter in the handwriting of Rabbi Arye Levin to the president Zalman Shazar - a request to pardon the leader of the group that was accused of killing Kastner, 1962. Historical letter!

Lot 26: A letter in the handwriting of Rabbi Arye Levin to the president Zalman Shazar - a request to pardon the leader of the group that was accused of killing Kastner, 1962. Historical letter!

by Jerusalem of Gold Ltd.

April 12, 2015, 5:00 PM EET

Jerusalem, Israel

Description: Yisrael (Rudolf) Kastner (1906-1957) was a Jew of Hungarian origin, a senior clerk at the Trade and Labor Ministry and a candidate of the Mapai Party for the second Knesset. In 1953, Kastner was accused by a member of the Mizrachi Movement, Malkiel Gruenwald, of collaboration with the Nazis in the extermination of the Hungarian Jews during World War II and of concealing the fact that the Hungarian Jews were about to be exterminated in order to save about 1,700 'distinguished' Jews, his friends and relatives among them, who were allowed to leave Budapest for Switzerland and of assisting the Nazi criminal Kurt Becher by attesting in his favor during the Nuremberg Trials. Kastner sued Gruenwald for libel. The attorney Shmuel Tamir, a member of the Etzel and the Herut Party, defended Gruenwald. The judge in the trial was Binyamin Ha'Levi. In June 1955, Judge Ha'Levi ruled that Gruenwald's accusations regarding Kastner's collaboration with the Nazis have been proven and that "Kastner had sold his soul to the devil". Kastner's supporters claimed that he was actually a hero, who despite all the objective risks and emotional hardships involved in being in touch with people such as Eichmann, Kastner had done his best to save as many Jews as possible. The trial itself was conceived as an accusation of the national parties against Mapai, whose representative in Budapest had been Kastner. Therefore, the government decided to appeal to the Supreme Court. On 28.6.1955, the Herut Movement filed a no-confidence motion against the government due its handling of the affair, which brought to the government's collapse. On 7.3.1957, Kastner was shot and died from his wounds. In January, the Supreme Court ruled that Kastner had not collaborated with the Nazis. The ruling noted that under certain circumstances, a leader should hides information from the public. The General Security Services found out that the murder was committed by former Lehi fighters. The initiator and organizer was Yosef Menkes. He, the driver Dan Shemer and the shooter Ze'ev Eckstein were judged and sentenced to many years in prison. After several years, they were pardoned by president Shazar. The letter before us contains a unique revelation. It turns out that President Shazar received a long and personal appeal from Rabbi Arye Levin to pardon Menkes. It seems that this appeal was highly significant. The matter of the pardon is shrouded in fog. Was it only a humanitarian matter considering the mothers and children? Was it questioning the conviction in light of the special circumstances? In the letter, Rabbi Levin might hint at such a possibility: "to be the savior of the prisoner ... even if he is guilty". This is interesting material for those studying the affair. The letter is composed of two parts. The first contains congratulations to Shazar for being appointed "President of Israel in the Land of Israel". The words demonstrate Rabbi Levin's respect to the State of Israel and its president. The second part is the request for pardoning Menkes. It turns out that Rabbi Levin was most active in the request for the pardon. He tells Shazar that he has already appealed in the matter to Prime-Minister Ben-Gurion and to the President Ben-Zvi. The latter, however, died before signing the pardon and now the matter is laid before Shazar. He appeals to Shazar in a respective yet most clear manner: "And now, Mr. President, it is your duty to be the savior..." The complete letter is written in Rabbi Levin's pearly handwriting. At the end of the first part, there are two signatures in his handwriting, one in square script and the other in his regular handwriting. At the end of the second part there is an additional signature. All in all, three signatures. A historical document, most rare! Another such long letter of Rabbi Levin is unknown! Condition: Very good.

by Holabird Western Americana

Estimated Price: $70 - $150

Description: Uncancelled stock, no. 4871 issued to G. G. Rice, 100 shares, signed by G.G. Rice signature on reverse. Brown on cr?me paper. The townsite was about 60 miles north of Winnemucca. It was known as having the richest gold ore found in the state of Nevada at one time, as much as $30 per pound of ore. Initial discoveries were made in 1907 and by 1908, leases had been drawn up based on a sliding scale of royalty payments. By 1912, the town had a number of merchants including stores, saloons, a hotel, and a post office. That year, two men stole sacks of ore from a mine shaft, and the mine owners installed a searchlight and hired round-the-clock security. Later that year the mine owners brought suit against two neighboring mines for trespassing on the property. G.G. Rice was an infamous stock promoter who went to prison for his questionable trading practices. He wrote a book there titled Adventures with Your Money. He returned to stock trading after his release but the authorities were soon back on his trail. City: National State: Nevada, Circa: 1918
