SS WEDDING EDITION MEIN KAMPF BOX

FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE FOR AUTHENTICITY

Here is a very rare SS item to consider: it is a wooden chest or box carved exquisitely with the SS runic symbols on the cover. To the best of our knowledge, the only other identical original, on display, is in the British War Museum in London. The box was said to be made to house a wedding edition of Adolf Hitler’s book Mein Kampf, but evidently high-ranking SS personnel were able to procure these boxes to house the copies of their wedding editions. The State gave wedding editions of Mein Kampf (Hochzeitsausgabe) to newlyweds on the occasion of their marriage. Usually imprinted with the city state’s symbol on the cover, the typed page between the front-end paper and the title page recorded the names of the newly married couple and was usually “signed”by the Bürgermeister, or mayor.
The box measures about 3 inches high, and the box cover is 9½ x 7½ inches and extends about ½ inch over the edge (see images). The bottom base platform also extends in the same manner. The entire box is a masterpiece of cradftmanship and tapered projections as is the interior with corresponding mortises.
The lid of the box has the carved SS runic symbols in a triple-tier framing that is neatly incised, and raised while outside this perimeter is a fabulous extra framing with carved oak leaves that boldly stand out dimensionally, as well as an early type swastika. Amongst the oak leaves is the Germanic Hagel rune that represents faith and camaraderie that leaders of the SS idealized.
This is a further indication that the boxes were practically always meant for procurement and ownership by officers of higher rank and prestige. This also is an indication of why they are so rare. The box appears to be constructed in oak and since oak was considered the sacred tree of Teutonic saga, this would certainly be the chosen material for such a practically sacrosanct an object as this beautiful coffer obviously was in visage, meaning, and paramount purpose.

We are well aware of the fakes out there and give a full money back guarantee for authenticity for this item.
