Lot 3026
Veteran brought back silver dinnerware set from Hitler's Berghof. Each bares the AH insignia with eagle on handle. Insignia edges are crisp and detailed as expected. Very rare formal pattern with Greek border. Marked 800 for silver content and stamped with the Eagle. Knife measures 8 and 5/16", the fork is 7 1/4", and the spoon measures 5 and 5/8". Berghof was Adolf Hitler's home in the Obersalzberg of the Bavarian Alps near Berchtesgaden, Bavaria, Germany, where he spent most of his time during the War. After being bombed and then set on fire by retreating SS troops, US 3rd Infantry Division along side French 2nd Armored Division arrived only hours later and looted the home. This lot has a reserve.
