    Hi Neil, I have moved your thread here from the Paperwork forum in order for you to try and get an answer to your question.

    Hilter silverware items are a study in their own right and it is not a subject I am at all versed in. So I cannot help you much. I have seen patterns with an eagle and the "AH" initials. I do know there are "formal" and "informal" patterns.

    But I am sure that forum members Robin and Vid might have some knowledge in this specialised area of collecting. If they don't see this thread drop them a PM.

    Cheerrs, Ade.

    Neil, when it come's to AH sliver one must remember that he was the leader of a nation and had many many place setttings, some for dinners of up to 200. I have seen a lot of his sliver over the years. Both good and bad and this one is unknown to me, I seem to remember a hotel in Ausburg at that time useing the AH.The only 2 books I know on the subject have been out of print for years, I have them both thay were written by Dr.MARK D.Griffth. He show most of the know patterns of sliver all have eagle and swaz, there is on a set from the Berghof with the AH with curved block letters marked Wellner and the edges have a design on them, yours looks to plain. I have heard that Dr Griffth may be out with new book soon with new info. From what you have it does look like the ones know to date.

    Hope I was of some help?

    Good Luck, Darrell.

    No all I'm saying is that it might not be from the Berghof,it might be from the Augsburg Holtel???? story's get told and retold as you know.But from the books I have your patturn does not comform to the know one.A littel more study into the maker and asking around my give you a littel more insight as to whom may be AH for all we know it might be Alan Hill.Thanks Darrell

    I must agree that the engraving on this spoon is not of the quality one would expect to find on a set of silver used by Hitler. It also does not match any known official pattern .

    The Greek Key is the most used type of the types used by Hitler and this was used for State Dinner's with up to 200.
