Hitler's phone, 'the most destructive 'weapon' of all time,' sold for $243,000Breaking News
Adolf Hitler's telephone was sold at auction in the United States on Sunday for $243,000. The winning bid was made by phone but the name of the bidder has not been released.
The phone was presented to Hitler by the Wehrmacht and was used by the Nazi leader to issue most of his commands during the last two years of World War II, according to a description in the catalog for Alexander Historical Auctions in Maryland.
The phone was recovered from the Fuhrerbunker in 1945 and has been kept in a box in an English country house ever since.
