I have this little wooden board that's written in German, which says Caution don't touch bodies hazardous burns on it. I'm assuming this is from the 1945 Nazi Concentration Camp of some sort. So the question is how much would it be worth if it were real and I had all documentation? I don't have a picture right now, but I can surely get one.

@jbloom,
I dunno, but provenance is very important.

I have a 9mm German Luger P-08 date stamped: 194O.
I wish I knew its provenance. It must have an interesting,
probably tragic story; very sleek looking, with its 55 degree handle.

@jbloom,
I wonder why you get the idea that this board is from a Concentration Camp.

@saab,
I suppose that it might be something similar to this notice Wink

@Walter Hinteler,
Thank you.
The English translation seemed like a internet translation.

There's no market for Nazi stuff these days, anyway.

@saab,
I don't know if it really is this (or a similar) notice - but that is quite common, today and since we'd got labour security rules, which happened in 1845.

I don't think that it is Nazi-Stuff, at least, if it is wooden, it's not from a KZ but seems to be from some ... e.g. timber/wood craft works, a sewing mill or similar.

@jbloom,
Kind of a guess from far left field, but the "hazardous burns" might be from white phosphorous.

@PUNKEY,
A report in today's Independent
Quote:
The trade in artefacts linked to Hitler is booming in Britain.
[...]
"The trade is booming," said Malcolm Claridge, an expert on militaria for Dreweatts. "There's always interest in the big names: it used to be Wellington and Napoleon; now it's Hitler, Goering and Himmler. The trade always gets good money for quality things, and the design and quality of the German stuff is particularly good. But I had no idea it was going to go mad like that."
