ADOLF HITLER
(1889 - 1945) Führer of Germany and Nazi Party leader, Hitler's bloody rise to power, his military seizure of most of Europe and North Africa and his genocidal racial policies culminated in suicide in his Berlin bunker as Russian troops approached. Excessively rare A.L.S. on his gold-embossed 7 1/2" x 4 3/4" correspondence card, Berlin, written on Hitler's 49th birthday, Apr. 20, 1938, in German. In full: "My dear and gracious lady, Permit me to extend my cordial good wishes on the occasion of your birthday. May the day be a joyful one. Most sincerely yours, Af Hitler". Very light soiling, else near fine. The recipient of Hitler's birthday wishes, who shared a birthday with the tyrant, is unknown. Only a tiny handful of Hitler A.Ls.S. have come to market in the past thirty years, and they are therefore legendary rarities. Near fine condition, sold with an original real photo postcard.
Estimate $ 10,000-12,000
