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.

Civil War POW Soldier ID'd Army Regulations Book

Lot 374: Civil War POW Soldier ID'd Army Regulations Book

by Cordier Auctions & Appraisals

March 29, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

Harrisburg, PA, USA

Estimated Price: $150 - $300

Description: DESCRIPTION: Civil War era book Revised Regulations for the Army of the United States 1861 with Full Index belonging to two identified Civil War soldiers: Manuel C. Causten and John Hamilton. Published by J.B. Lippincott & Co., Philadelphia: 1862. Publisher's green cloth with embossing and gilt, 559 pages. Inscribed to front fixed endpaper "Mustering Office Utica N.Y. 1862" with signature "MC Causten". Also signed to title page "M.C. Causten Washington D.C. 1865" and "John Hamilton State College Pa." Manuel Carvallo Causten (1841-1878) was a prisoner of war multiple times during the Civil War, being considered the first Union prisoner of the eastern theater. He was a Private in Capt. Owen's Company (President's Mounted Guards) which had served in Abraham Lincoln's inaugural detail. On June 3, 1861 while visiting his new wife's sister and brother-in-law Benjamin Jackson Cross at Seneca Mills, Maryland, a band of Virginia troops, led there by Cross, kidnapped Causten and took him back to Virginia. He was held in various places including Salisbury, North Carolina until June 1862. He received a commission as a lieutenant in the 19th US Infantry during his imprisonment so he could be exchanged for a Confederate office of equal rank and rejoined his regiment after recovering from his imprisonment. In September 1863, Causten was captured at Chickamauga and sent to Libby Prison. He and his future brother-in-law Benjamin F. Fisher were two of the 109 prisoners that tunneled out of Libby in 1864. While Fisher escaped, Causten couldn't continue and was capture for a third time and sent to prison at Camp Oglethorpe in Georgia and later Columbia Military Prison, South Carolina. He was exchanged out of prison and returned to Washington in December 1864 and resigned his position due to illness in February 1865. Causten held a post in the Treasury after the war and was a partner in the druggist firm Ritchie & Causten until his death at age 37 on March 30, 1878. John Hamilton (1843-1921) was born in Juniata County, Pennsylvania. On July 25, 1861, he joined the First Pennsylvania Reserve Cavalry seeing action in various battles including Gettysburg and rising to the grade of Sergeant-Major in 1863. After the war, he began studies at the Agricultural College of Pennsylvania. He suspended his studies after being appointed the Superintendent of the Farm in 1866. He was later appointed to Commandant of Cadets in 1869. After resuming his studies, he graduated from the Pennsylvania State College in 1871 and was appointed Professor of Agriculture and Military Instructor. Hamilton continued to be affiliated with Penn State in numerous capacities over many years including serving as business manager and treasurer and being elected trustee before retiring in 1911. He also served a term as Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. Hamilton was awarded an honorary Master of Science degree by Penn State in 1921 and died later that year on July 5. MEASUREMENTS: 5-1/2" x 8-1/4". CONDITION: Boards with wear. Pages with light toning and scattered foxing. Spine loose in areas but all pages appear intact. ESTIMATE: $150 - $300

by Jerusalem of Gold Ltd.

April 12, 2015, 5:00 PM EET

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.

by Antiquarian Traders Inc

March 27, 2015, 12:00 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.

by Heritage Auctions

March 28, 2015, 1:00 PM CST

Dallas, TX, USA

Estimated Price: $600 - $1,200

Description: World War II Propaganda (H.M. Stationery Office, London, England, 1940s). Auxiliary Territory Service Poster (19" X 29") "Join the ATS." Doreen Murphy became known as "The Blonde Bombshell" after posing for this poster, which graced the walls of many U.K. recruiting offices during World War II. Designed by Abram Games (b. 1914), who became Britain's only official war poster artist, the piece was eventually deemed to "frivolous" by Parliament and replaced with another version. Games created more than 100 official posters during the war years, and although this one featuring Ms. Murphy was pulled from circulation, the originals are resurfacing. In 2013, England's National Army Museum acquired a collection of Games' signed work from his daughter. Light edge wear along the top, diagonal creases, and a pinpoint center crossfold separation. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
