    Im at a gun show this morning and saw this. The story goes is that it's Himmler's cyanide capsule holder supposedly taken at the scene of his death.. The interesting thing is that it's not for sale which adds credibility in my mind but seems too good to be true. Only markings are on the top. Comments appreciated.

    number of these showed up about 15 years ago. I have never been clear if they were genuine unused containers or replicas. It is quite possible that the owner of the container you saw believes the story but I seriously doubt the story. Himmler had the cyanide glass container hidden in his mouth and as he was undoubtedly searched when captured, the container would have been found at that time.

    The IWM has one, but its uncertain if its real..my understanding is the SS marked ones are fake..if you read the IWM one it gives different details suicide phial cyanide concealment (EPH 2517) and this footage is supposed to show Himmler's one B/W 1945 extreme close up hand holding cyanide capsule Heinrich...

    Oh he believes it. He's been a dealer in this area for decades but the story is just hard to swallow... no pun intended.
