This is just a sample of the group too!
Wonderful material. I would guess the widow retained all of this until her death. Is there any information on how this grouping worked it's way across the Atlantic? For those of us who do not go to the Max, give us a shot at the grouping before you go.
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
This group was obtained from the widow yes, by Tony Sidoti and held for many many years before he sold off most of his things in the past few years. I'm not sure how it all managed to stay together across the ocean!
This is indeed a great grouping, and im sure lots of collectors will love it too, but.........I think you should have started the post otherwise:
I wanted to SELL this very unique and exciting grouping that resides in my collection.
A fantastic lot , and a nice Himmler signature to boot !
We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
Always a little further : it may be
Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
Across that angry or that glimmering sea...
Regardless, I appreciate you showing us this unique and rare grouping...I found the doctor's letter to the wife to be an interesting read...
Hi Red..this is quite exquisite..and would be a center piece to any collection. The amount of leters and paperwork that has fold this surely adds tons of character to the sword itself. I will be attending the Max show and I would love to view this excellent sword..if it is not sold within minutes..as I have no doubt in my mind..it will be a matter of minutes as it has happened to you also..before it belongs to someone else. Thank you for sharing these great photos and the sword in your collection. Regards Larry
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

Truly breathtaking group, Baron. These groups don't always stay together this long. Some think they will make more money parting them out, but i think its worth much more together as a set.I'm sure it will find a nice home. Thanks for sharing with us and allowing us first chance offer
Also, the second photo in post#1 reminds me of a photo I have of Rolf Dierks.
This is the first time i see a Honour Sword verleihungs Urkunde.
To read the "Urkunde" and learn about the rules that came with the privilege to wear this sword was great
