    Default Classic Waffen-SS Poster

    I thought I would share this with the forum members. While just about every SS collector has seen this reproduced somewhere, few people have ever seen an actual surviving war time copy of this famous poster.

    Some background on it:

    Probably the most desirable of all the Waffen-SS posters and certainly the most widely copied of all SS posters. According to certain sources, Anton used Knights Cross holder Klemens Behler as his model for this poster. Behler was still a recruit at that time (in 1941). He went on to win his Knights cross in 1945 while serving in the Artillery Regiment of the 23. SS-Freiwilligen-Panzergrenadier Division " Nederland ". Klemens Behler survived the war and went on to serve in the Bundeswehr - he died in 1998.



    The German magazine "Stern" used this poster on its August 2006 cover, which is a testament to it's iconic association with the Waffen-SS.

    Few originals of this poster survive today.

    Best of luck with your search - it took me 9 years to find this one. I've never even seen another one for sale.

    Well if I got a ring in the box and it took me 20 years to get it, I can wait.

    Thanks Darrell
