    I just can't believe ANYBODY would put the design on the bottom (or back) of the ashtray. How bogus is that?

    Dreadful.

    You always have to think that Himmler wishes to raise the level of German cultural and artistic tastes and he would never have santioned something like this. Bear this in mind when looking at items like this. 9.9 times out of ten, they will be rubbish.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This type of ashtray was issued as a limited edition for high ranking Nazi officials and can be clearly seen in period photos with Hitler and Himmler. It was also on the dinner table at official dinner parties and social engagements. If its solid brass its most likly real.

    Even if this one is a fake, the desing would be a exact replica
