7 German trophies owned by the family of a Soviet General

German trophies owned by the family of a Soviet General

Posted on August 19, 2016 by Andrey

The story about these photos is that they were obtained by a connoisseur of antiques from the son of a Soviet General. The photographer said that when the Soviet troops left East Germany, his father sent all his valuables to Krasnoyarsk. The son didn’t want all these trophies, and intended to get a small fortune for them. Besides the items shown in the photos, the General’s family possesses a collection of paintings and other antique valuables.

    The Mauser pistol is garish, but the Luger is beautiful. It must have really been an Uebernazi who had stuff like that.

    How did that Russian General get his hands on Ben Garrison’s handgun?

    I’d like to take them to a gun show here in Ohio. Just to see how bad the buyers would drool, then give lowball offers, and I could laugh heartily at them.

    My father had a Luger like that in his collection, not as ornate though. At one point he had over 30 of them.

    LOL, the Luger and Mauser pistols are both obviously overdone postwar engraved fakes. A pity, as the garish “nazi – ss” engraving ruined two real examples.

    Typical stolen or robbed trophies of soviet soldiers.

    AL…why would one go through so much work to produce fakes like this? Your comment makes no sense. Please elaborate your comment.
