Bouckville, NY, USA, November 27, 2022 — Historically significant examples of militaria spanning multiple conflicts and generations from several collections – including items from one of the finest Adolf Hitler collections assembled since 1945 – will come up for bid in Militaria Auction #88, an Internet and gallery auction scheduled for Saturday, December 17th, by Mohawk Arms, at 9 am Eastern time.
The catalog is brimming with items that will appeal to seasoned collectors and novices alike, online and live in the gallery on Route 20 in Bouckville, in upstate New York. The full catalog will be up soon, at www.MilitaryRelics.com, plus LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com.
Headlining the auction is the collection of Donald G. Brownlow, who arrived in Normandy with the second of American troops storming Utah Beach during World War II. By the end of the war, he’d won five Battle stars, was wounded at the “Bulge”, was captured by the Nazis and escaped, rose to the rank of Major and accumulated evidence used at the Nuremburg War Crimes Trials.
When he returned to the States, Brownlow pursued a teaching career, built a serious collection, wrote ten history books and visited German military figures on yearly trips to Europe. He forged friendships with Hasso von Manteuffel, Leni Riefenstahl and Adolf Galland, Admiral Donitz, Lucile Jodl, Luftwaffe and Navy (U-Boat) Knight’s Cross recipients, plus other WWII notables.
Hitler-related items in Mr. Brownlow’s collection include a gold bullion Fuhrerstandarte, a 1910 signed Adolf Hitler watercolor with Peter Jahn provenance, a portrait of Hitler by Fritz Erler, a portrait of Geli Raubel, Hitler silverware and tableware, linens, porcelain, crystal, glassware, a signed letter and documents and personal items, as well as a “Deutschland Erwache” standard.
