VERY RARE PRUSSIAN LANDPOLIZEI BATTALION STANDARD WITH STREAMERS AND POLE TOP
This is a very rare Prussian Landpolizei 4' X 4' Battalion standard, complete with streamers and pole top. Only perhaps 50 of these were originally bestowed on Prussia's State Police units in the early days of the Third Reich; in fact, the design of the flag is very closely modelled on the regimental standards of the old Imperial Prussian army.
Possibly 5-7 of these flags survive in the market place today. At the time when this flag was consecrated, Hermann Goring was the head of the Prussian police, and when the Hermann Goring Regiment of the Luftwaffe was established, the Landpolizei Battalion standard was used as the basis for the Regimental standard.
The 2nd and 3rd battalions of the HG Regiment trooped flags identical to this one but the 1st Battalion standard has a small "Southern Cross" on a shield embroidered below the central eagle.

The streamers are black and tarnished silver and are possible made from two that have been sewn together, as there is a seam joining the ribbon in the middle. The literature describes the regulation streamers as being green and silver, and these streamers may in fact be a hold-over from an earlier (Weimar or Imperial) standard- they are in the Prussian state colours.
The pole top is a hollow cast variety, and is correct for this flag- it is a rarity in and of itself.

Condition-wise, there is some very minor fading/discoloration, and some staining and fraying to portions of the while silk arms of the cross, although no material is missing (see pics).
This is a gorgeous and rare flag of the most amazing quality!

There is another specimen of this flag currently for sale, without streamers or pole top, for 55K.

FELDGENDARMERIE der LUFTWAFF GORGET
Very Rare Gorget for Feldgendarmerie der Luftwaffe. During the early part of the war, there was no need for the Luftwaffe to maintain its own force of Military Police, its field units being very limited in size.
With the creation of a considerable number of Luftwaffe Field Divisions and of course the massive Fallschirmpanzerkorps Hermann Göring, the Luftwaffe decided that its units should field their own military police. The organisation, structure and size of the Luftwaffe Feldgendarmerie units followed the army model.
Initially, the Feldgendarmerie of the Luftwaffe was considered as part of the Divisional Supply and Support elements and wore the light blue Waffenfarbe associated with these troops. In June 1943 however, the orange-red Waffenfarbe as used by the army was adopted by the Luftwaffe also.
When worn, the cuffband used by Luftwaffe Feldgendarmen was the machine woven army pattern. The Feldgendarmerie sleeve eagle seems rarely to have been used within the Luftwaffe, and it is assumed that when worn, it was the standard army version on field-grey and not a special Luftwaffe version on field-blue.
The Luftwaffe however, did have its own version of the Feldgendarmerie Gorget in which the regular national emblem was replaced by the Luftwaffe version of the national emblem. Although the Army Gorget was certainly widely worn within the Luftwaffe, there is plenty of evidence to show their own special version also being used.
This specimen was made by Assmann of Ludenscheid and conforms to the Heer pattern save for the unique Luftwaffe eagle in the centre. The eagle is slightly larger than a cap eagle, and slightly smaller than the metal breast eagle. All luminous elements still glow brightly in the dark. The original chain and cloth backing are present. This gorget’s details conform to the other few original specimens in existence, and it is unmessed-with and original in every respect.

RARE NSDAP BIRTHDAY PRESENTATION GOBLET FOR GAULEITER LEADER KARL KAUFMANN
BACKGROUND:
Karl Kaufmann (October 10, 1900 – December 4, 1969 ) was a Nazi Gauleiter in Hambur and government of Hamburg from 1933 until 1945.
A founding member of the NSDAP in 1921.
He was also member of the German Reichstag. After Hitler gained power on 16 May 1933, Kaufmann was appointed Reichsstatthalter (Regional Governor) of Hamburg with absolute power over some 1.8 million people. One of his first acts was to turn over control of the city's Fuhlsbüttel Prison to the SA and SS, where it quickly became the nucleus of the notorious Kola-Fu concentration camp.
In September 1941, after Allieds bombing of Hamburg had rendered many people homeless, Kaufmann petitioned Hitler to allow him to deport local Jews so that he could confiscate their property to rehouse bombed-out citizens. Hitler quickly responded, allowing Kaufmann the dubious distinction of being the first Nazi leader to deport German Jews, in this instance to the Lódz Ghetto in Poland.
Arrested shortly after the occupation of Hamburg by British forces in 1945, in 1946 Kaufmann was witness at the Nuremberg Trials he was subsequently tried for war crimes and sentenced to a term of imprisonment, but released soon after on the grounds of ill health after an accident. He was to be arrested twice more before being finally released in 1953.
Kaufmann died on 4 December 1969 in Hamburg.
