    A quality reproduction will sell for $7000 to $8000. The original Heer marshals batons have always brought in excess of a quarter of a million dollars, but Kesselring's would be a rarer Luft baton and brought what it is worth. Congratulations to the lucky new owner.

    Nice thinghy but I'd have bought a few Ferraris and many choice WSS combat uniforms with that cash!Congratulations to the new owner but I'd be green with envy had him rather found a cache of complete combat uniforms!
