Item: Himmler Presentation Cigarette Box
SKU: A-FI-HimmlerBox
Himmler Presentation Cigarette Box
Price: $3,500.00

 

Solid silver, heavy rectangular box is seven and one quarter inches (7 1/4") long, by three and three quarter inches (3 3/4") wind by one and one half inches (1 1/2") tall. The box has two horizontal scroll pattern lines running parallel to each other on top and bottom.











Centered between these lines on the front of the box is the inscription "HANS FRANK - JAHRESWECHEL - REICHSFUHRER SS" (Hans Frank - Change of the Year - Reichsfuhrer SS) on a first line, with the year "1942" underneath on a second line. The script signature of Heinrich Himmler appears to the right of the inscription.







The box is well maked on the bottom with three separate marks, uncluding the script letter "A" for Argent (Silver in Latin). The silver has taken on a heavy patina over the years consistent with its age. The crossed set of keys is the registered trademark of F. HERDER UND SOHNS - Soligen, who is also known to be a maker of high quality daggers and dress bayonets. The cat face trademark has not been identified as of this date, but is undoubtedly either the firm who did the engraving, and/or produced a probable lid for this item which was separated at one point from the bottom.



Below is a view looking into the box from the top. The patina is very visible and demonstrates considerable age.


Please note that RARE MILITARIA is only offering the base of this commemorative box for sale at this time and does not possess a lid for it.
