Before laying out any cash for something like this, it would be important to know
where it came from ( provenance ) and who was selling it ( a fly-by-nighter
or a reputable dealer ).
The biggest problem with it that I can see is the place where the photographer
is/was supposed to be located - Buenos Aires ? ! ? Maybe Adolf took
holidays there in the winter.........
At the same time to work for the "Deutsche La Plata Zeitung", Maubach, photographs had a company in Buenos Aires, which operated until year 48.
In the 40's, the newspaper was forced to close due to be considered national socialist sympathies, all their material is scattered across different offers of the time, as all the graphics files.
Guillermo Maubach had a well known photo studio in Buenos Aires, but in 1947 the U.S. Embassy reported that he'd been ordered deported as a "German Agent". But somehow he avoided arrest and couldn't be found
Sorry, Jose, But Hitler never set foot in either England or the US...he never stepped outside of Europe.
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Is that the hoffman photographers signature at bottom right.
I think perhaps the photo is a souvenir from cigar box or similar, with pre-printed signature. Like cinema stars , baseball cards. So a collectable set of high ranking reich leaders for an album. It's difficult to tell by the scan if ink added after. Is it being sold as original?
Unfortunately, I cannot enlarge the pics - it looks like it may be hand
written and not a part of the print - but they are all somewhat blurry.
It is theoretically possible that a period photo of Hitler made a trip
half way around the planet to then be autographed by the man,
but why ? - AH photos were readily available in Germany.........
Might be one of the gangs' who went to live in argentina?
