    I collect, therefore I am.

    Odd that these survived the war. After all, Karinhalle was blown up then taken over by the Soviets, I can't imagine too many victorious Soviet troops collecting cigars without smoking or trading them for other goodies.

    Maybe from his residence at Berchtesgaden ? He had a ton of loot hidden in the so-called "Alladins' cave". A GI found a roman style gladius made by Napoleons' personal armoire in goering s pool after an allied bomb blast on his residence.

    The article mentions Brandenberg where Carinhalle was located.

    Seems that 2 boxes are just ordinary cigars?

    Without rock solid proof they are just some boxes of dry cigars that could have been anybody's.

    Now that would be a bargain for 1,300! Would that be for everything, or just the one?

    I have seen several boxes of Goring cigars on the market over the years. The boxes were personalized with Goring's name as were the ones in the auction. I do not know if it was the same box or several different ones. If these inded came fron Carinhalle, it is likely they were traded to a British soldier by a Russian.
