    I have a small collection of Hitler plaques, and would like to add to them. I came across this example, and am wondering if anyone can tell me whether it is a period piece.

    One of my concerns, even if it is period, is that it looks like a lousy representation of AH, in my opinion. Is it worth a couple hundred bucks? Don't know. Thanks.

    Hello IMO none of the examples shown are period originals. They lack overall quality and detail, not only the likeness, but the lettering, and are also crudely cast. I'm certain there were unauthorized images of AH produced in period, but no foundry or artist would place their name or mark to them I'd think. Bear in mind Hitler was the first person to trademark his image, and was a man who had his own personal photographer Hoffman, to control what was worthy of release to the press for print, and or for production of propaganda materials, stamps etc. To produce an item bearing his likeness without authorization would not be received well I d suspect. Compare to the examples seen in this thread.Best regards.
