And so on to the "Damascus steel" letter opener............
Again, a tacky, low quality offering. Not only is the engraving crap, but the name is reversed. How many gifts do you see with the surname followed by the first name? The steel is not even Müller Damascus production. An absolute car crash copy of the real thing.
Here are some photos of a real Paul Müller Damascus steel letter opener, based on the original design. This example is probably from the immediate post-war period when Müller is known to have continued manufacture of Damascus steel for a short time, but you can clearly see the difference in quality.
I have been reliably informed that the "Globocnik" paperwork here was allegedly once the property of a possibly inexperienced dealer in the USA called Brant Murphy. Sadly, Murphy was allegedly shot dead by a police officer in 2003 whilst suffering from acute depression.
Fella's I have a question for you all. Not to get off topic by any means, but just out of curiosity, what is a genuine Adolf Hitler signature on a piece of well preserved document worth?
Interesting thread, Like Paul at a glance I assumed these were possibly from your Collection W....However I see why you posted as you did. My opinion on the Signed Hitler Document is that it looks contrived, Its more a Gut feeling on the ageing and appearance of the Document.
