Default Very Strange Auction Coming up in North America

I am not sure if i can place it here.

Wel if it is wrong Harry or Craig you can place it to an chanel you want but this month there is some pretty rare WWII stuff going to be auctioned from Hitlers Bunker in America.

I will not bid on it because it is my to much depressed stuff to have but for anybody else to have an watch or have interest then here it is.

Well i like the porcelain dog but not with the thoughts that it was once from Hitler.

I always remember there was an old farmer over here that never could speak his name right.
He called him always Hittteller...

Never heard of this sale or those items before. I think those things need to be located in one of the public war museums personally.

I think every Nazi item made carries a curse with it..especially a belonging of that Austrian POS.

Many years back, I was at Mr. Krumweide's in North Dakota picking up some Rumely parts. He said there was an auction sale north of there the next day with a Rumely. I stopped in there just for fun and to visit.
There were wagon loads of small items as usual. On one wagon there was an old German army helmet. Pretty beat up. I picked it up for a look and dropped it back on the wagon immediately. I do not know why! Something told me to not be holding it. That was the weirdest feeling. Maybe the poor bugger that had worn it in battle came to a nasty and abrupt end?

You've got to be careful about some things. Without going into detail.."certain" things "attach" themselves to things. The unseen cling to the item. Sounds weird and makes me sound like a lunatic but it is true. I have experienced it too many times to ignore it.

You did well Willikers to leave that helmet. It had a history and a very bad one at that. Don't bring such things into your home.

Yes, too creepy for contemplation. Similar to wanting the 32 Case that blew up in Medina..it doesn't need to be seen again. I had the same creepy & sinister feeling when I examined it.

Great story , so you are buying a story! Nazi items come up for sale/auction all of the time. As for having a curse , only in your mind. If you believe in ghosts , witchcraft . curses , stay away from things that give off bad vibes. Ron

Also many of those kind of items are likely fake. There's no fool proof way to guarantee it's the real deal. A sharp dealer can generate all kinds of documents to back up his story but the ones that owned the genuine articles are long dead.
