Searching For Admiral Doenitz’s Daggers.In june 2016 a Lady and Gentlemen inquired as to if I was interested in buying from them a “Brown Bess Musket” after discussing the item and suggesting a range of valuations for the yet unseen long gun I asked if they had any other interesting Militaria. At first there was some reluctance before the Lady confided that they had owned a pair of Doenitz’s Pajamas but a staying guest had worn them and they were now lost. She continued the tale stating that The Admirals passport had also been in her Husband’s possession but had been given to an old girlfriend? I was petrified at the thought of these treasures being lost.. I was unprepared for the most significant find In my or anyone elses Militaria Dealing history. The Lady continued claiming that they had awards,Medals,Insignia, . There was no suggestion that these had come from Doenitz and when she gesticulated a necklace I assumed naively she was referring to a Gorget. My prediction is that the Gorget will turn out to be the issue Ritterkreuz of Adolf Hitler’s successor.
