!!! World War II Memorabilia !!!
One of the rarest Horst Wessel Lied editions!
This is the very first pressing, made in Berlin, 1933!
The most looked after version with the song in full length and with singing!
Lead by: Führer Martin Ewers Choir: Rolf Sandor with choir Played by: S. Sturmbann XII (Untergruppe Ost, Berlin)
"Badernweiler-Marsch" (Official march of Adolf Hitler)
Lead by: Führer Martin Ewers Played by: S. Sturmbann XII (Untergruppe Ost, Berlin)
CONDITION E (-)
Both sides of the record are clean and shiny, without any scratches or hairlines! "Horst Wessel" side is in excellent condition! Seems that it has been played only handful of times. Light surface sound audible in the last 10 seconds. "Badenweiler" side has light groove wear visible, plays still very nice. Record comes with rare original sleeve!
This particular pressing has been listed on eBay only twice before!
Most of these were destroyed after the war, finding a copy nowadays is extremely rare!
This is my last copy, the previous one, which was in much worse condition, sold within hours for the buy now price of 490 USD.
IN CASE OF INTEREST be quick, eBay tends to take down this kind of records, although it is sold only as memorabilia!
The record can be played also with a modern turntable, which has a shellac stylus.
Feel free to check other similar 78rpm records in my store!
