Recently we had Hitler's champagne up for auction, and now a globe that an American soldier recovered from Hitler's bombed and looted office at "Eagle's Nest" during WWII. James Barsamian, the soldier, kept immaculate records of the find (including a photo of himself holding the globe on location the day he found it) which has made authenticating the piece much easier.
Barsamian has kept the globe in his home discreetly for the past 60 years, but he's decided to sell it now in the interests of doing so while he's still alive and can tell the story behind it. The globe will go up for auction on November 13th in San Francisco and is expected to go for $15,000-$20,000.
