    I believe the disc is genuine. Take a look here for the evidence.

    I saw that, and agree, crazy how many fakes are out there. I don't know if i should sell it, donate it or keep it. Any idea how many exist?

    i wouldn't even know how to place a value on it. Have any sold prior on this site? any historical prices? I'd rather keep it as a family heirloom unless the price is hard to ignore.

    Was your grandmother a survivor of the KLs? Was she Jewish?

    I'm not sure about the actual camp but I'll ask my Mom about it. She was a Jehovah witness actually, whcih were treated like the Jews back then.

    I found one in 1989 in Amsterdam at a yard sale. Old lady wanted to give it to me until I told her what it was worth. She had lost a bunch of family to the gestapo during the war and did not remember how she came to have it although she thought her son might have gotten it off a Gestapo agent that he had killed in revenge after the Germans had capitulated. I wanted nothing to do with it as I personally feel that money made selling an item associated with such evil would be blood money... but that's just me. Most other German stuff is different. I specialize in German ordinance. But a Gestapo warrant disk from Amsterdam could very well have been involved with the arrest of Anne Frank... and most certainly was involved with involved with the transports from Holland. Too much bad Karma.

    Depends on how you look at it. The fact that my Jewish hands are holding a piece of metal that once had the power to send my ancestors to their death was probably Hitler's worst nightmare. Especially if I'm able to profit off of it. It's the ultimate revenge and symbol of victory if you ask me. Whoever this belonged to is spinning in their grave as i type this and I love every second of it.

    Welcome to the forum and thanks for showing this. Amazing item.

    Something I've always wanted for my collection.

    I personally would document the history of your grandmother and keep this item as part of that to pass down to other generations. But if you do choose to sell it, I would follow Glenns advice and list it in the classified section here at WRF. It will find a good home to someone who values history over just the resale value of the item.

    Regards,

    Michael
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
