EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL 1941 THIRD REICH POSTER

TAG DER DEUTSCHEN POLIZEI / SS MANN DEINE EHRE HEISST TREUE!

A STUNNING DISPLAY ITEM WITH FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE FOR AUTHENTICITY!

Offered for sale is an almost never seen 1941 poster by Sigfrid for the SS Sicherheitspolizei im Kriegseinsatz issued February 1941 for WHW (Winterhilfs-werk or Winter Aid). The imagery of this poster is fantastic! It consists of a large, wing-spread eagle in the background behind a huge, black SS flag carried by a black uniformed and helmeted member of the SD. At the top the text “Tag Der Deutschen Polizei” and along the bottom there are the SS runes next to “Mann” (Man) along with the motto “Deine Ehre Heisst Treue!” (Your Honor Is Loyalty). A fabulous image for sure especially in this very large size! The condition is overall excellent for a poster of this age and especially for a poster of this content from the Third Reich. This poster was no doubt displayed at some point as there are pin holes in each of the four corners. Just imagine where this poster may have been displayed at the time of its creation! After having served it’s purpose, someone carefully took the poster down and put it away in a safe place and it since has been in hiding for nearly 70 years. This poster just came out of Germany in 2011!

The poster is a huge 32.5” wide by 46.5” tall (82cm x 118cm)! It is in excellent condition with a few minor issues which can easily be remedied with professional linen backing and minimal restoration.

As stated above, there are a few pin holes in the corners but these are only visible upon very close review. There is absolutely NO paper loss in the corners indicating it was not torn from its posting but removed carefully and re-folded according to it’s original fold lines. In those original fold creases, there are a few minor rips and tears. The largest of these appears on the right side middle and is about 4 inches long. This tear is reinforced on the rear of the poster with white tape. It is unknown whether or not this is archival tape so this should be addressed with the conservator at time of linen backing. This tape can be easily removed by the conservator and then when backed the tear will be secured and the original poster paper can be properly aligned.

The few other crease tears are located at the intersections of fold lines and may appear in the photos to be holes. This is not at all the case but appear this way because the poster is not lying perfectly flat due to the folds. There is no paper loss at these locations. There are also 2 small edge tears in the top border of the poster. All these tears will be almost invisible when linen backed.

The paper is a typical, heavyweight paper from this time period and itself is very sturdy. The poster can be handled but should be handled with care due to the size and weight. The poster is slightly dry and a few of the fold lines are showing weakness so repeated folding and unfolding may contribute to additional crease line tearing. Once professionally backed, the poster will be completely flat as most of the original folds will have been reduced and will have been reinforced. The poster is flat as originally folded.

This poster will undoubtedly be amazing once archival backed and framed. Imagine how it would look in an entranceway or hallway...Stunning! Or as a backdrop to an SS Display...Incredible!!!
