Nazi memorabilia auction to sell Heinrich Himmler ring

Breaking News

A war ensign and a range of swords and daggers are among the other Third Reich items on sale.

Managing director Jonathan Humbert, the managing director of J P Humbert Auctioneers in Northamptonshire, said that they had received "an influx of Nazi items" after German Second World War objects uncovered during a council house clearance were sold at a recent auction. Items including a Nazi officer's cap sold for a total of £2,600.

"We have had a very large 5ft by 10ft Nazi war ensign and five or six fabulous Nazi swords and daggers," he said.

"It's good enough to have any items, but we've also got a death ring which has Himmler's name on it and the date of the Night of the Long Knives."

Himmler was the SS leader who helped orchestrate the Nazi purge of the SA 1934, and went on to co-ordinate the killing of millions of Jews during the Holocaust.
