    Default Interesting Guernsey Occupation Document.

    Hi guys,

    Here is a recent pickup of mine. I really wasn't sure what it was or if it was original when I saw the pictures but I took a punt on it for a couple of quid.

    Has anybody seen one before? Secondly, is it original?

    Thank you, Glen.

    I dont see anything wrong with the Document, Sig looks strong and free flowing.

    I would imagine this is quite a scarce surviving document?

    I found the entry "Presumed British, non Jewish" entry interesting. From slightly jaded memory I believe there were only two Jews living in the Channel Islands, whom I think were nannies from Austria, both were handed over by British "Bobbies" to the German authorities. The two ladies were then deported to their deaths in Auschwitz.
    I collect, therefore I am.

    Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter.

    Horrid. They might have imagined themselves to be out of harms way away from the Continent, only then to have the Germans show up.

    Hi,
    Yes this is 100% original, but its one of those documents that there were quite a lot of and many still exist and therefore are of little monetary value. More of a historically interesting piece rather than a pension fund. Unfortunately there are no official German stamps on the document which would have significantly increased its interest and value. It says on the sheet that there are 3 copies so thats 3 for one person. Many exist in collections and are in the low bracket with regards to value. I would still pick up such itemsas they are part of the bigger picture and have a story to tell. Well done and keep hunting.
    All the best from Jersey.

    Thank you for this information. I have never seen one for sale of even in somebodies collection. It is a shame the other accompanying documents aren't present; I will send the seller a message to see if he has anymore of the documents.

    Wheat would be the going rate for a document like this, £10-£20?

    Thank you, Glen.
