On 27 September Dr. Hermann Sommer (at the time he was Oberverwal-tungsgerichtsrat) was awarded with the Treudienst-Ehrenzeichen in gold for 40 years of faithful service. This document (above) bears Adolf Hitler's original ink pen signature! The ther two award documents in this grouping have Adolf Hitler autopen signatures, one of them in addition bears Reich Minister Frick's original ink pen signature. We cross examined the Hitler signature with examples in Hamilton's book on signatures of leaders of the Third Reich and it is an exact match.

the sample of an original Adolf Hitler signature in Hamilton's book is a perfect match to the signature on the document above.

These samples in Hamilton's book on Nazi leader's signatures show how much Adolf Hitler's signature changed over the years.

DOCUMENTS LOT OF NAZI REICH JUDGE (REICHSRICHTER)

DR. HERMANN SOMMER

WITH ONE ORIGINAL INK PEN SIGNATURE OF ADOLF HITLER AND ONE FROM MINISTER FRICK

AS WELL AS TWO AUTOPEN HITLER SIGNATURES!

This very interesting lot consists of nine documents for a high ranking judge in Nazi Germany, Dr. Hermann Sommer. He worked himslef up the career ladder until Adolf Hitler made him Reichsrichter (Reich Judge) of the adminitrative court in Berlin. The grouping contains one document with an original Adolf Hitler ink pen signature and another with an original ink pen signature of Reich Minister of the Interior, Wilhelm Frick. Dr. Sommer probably had a set of these hard to find reference books in his office: Die Verwaltungsakademie

On 9 December of 1941 Dr. Hermann Sommer was promoted to Oberverwaltungs-richter (higher ranking judge). The document has an Adolf Hitler autopen signature as well as the original ink signature from an official of Reich Minister Frick's office.

On 26 March of 1943 Dr. Hermann Sommer was promoted to Reichsrichter of the administrative court (Verwaltungsgericht). He then had the same rank as the infamous head of the Volksgerichtshof, Dr. Roland Freisler. The document has an Adolf Hitler autopen signature as well as the original ink signature of Reich Minister of the Interior, Frick. A close up of the Frick signature is shown below.

This document, signed by a secretary of Reich Minister Frick, notifies Dr. Sommer that he was assigned a job as Reichsrichter (Reich Judge) in the Verwaltungsgericht (Administrative Court). Below is a close up of the signature on this document.

we don't know the purpose of this calculation on an official NSDAP stationary, which also is part of this grouping. It looks like either payments from party members (note the prefix Pg. = Parteigenosse or Party Comrade in front of every name) or money owed by them.

This bio of Dr. Sommer must have been hand written after the war by a relative. It lists his entire career. Most interesting are the two last entries, stating that he was employed at the administrative court in Berlin from 1934 to 1945, first as Oberverwaltungsgerichtsrat and since 1943 as Reichsrichter. The last entry syas that he was arrested by the Russians in Berlin on 8 May of 1945 and that he is missing since.
