In part: '...unfortunately my answer to your questions will disappoint you: 1) I cannot give you information about Generalmajor Rein, I have lost touch with him since [19]45. 2) Unfortunately, I can't send you a photo of me...but if you can find one, I'm willing to sign it for you. 3) Letters, documents, orders and reports are no longer in my possession, neither from leaders or politicians...Thank you for offering your assistance with wishes in the U.S., but I have no connection to the US and as such no wishes...'.

Shipments are sent via FedEx and DHL (for most overseas shipments) or FedEx Ground at the auctioneer's option. Due to complications from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will ship with USPS Priority Mail only if the buyer submits their request to us in writing and accepts responsibility for delayed shipments. Signature is always required, unless other arrangements are made. Handling and shipping charges will be added to the invoice in one entry. Buyers should be aware that large, framed, fragile or odd shaped items can incur substantial shipping and packing charges. International shipments are invoiced by DIMENSIONAL weight, not the item weight. Please contact us for an estimate before bidding NOTE: Large, heavy or bulky items may not be shipped by the auctioneer - arrangements for shipping of these items via a third-party shipper may be arranged through the auction house.
