SMGL-24694 Czechoslovakian SS Gestapo (Sipo-SD) allied “wanted” Card Leopold Schaffelhofer
1 in stock
To the best of my knowledge these cards were used by allied forces to try and track down members of the Gestapo (Sipo-SD) based in Prague. Many of the cards mention that the individuals were captured by US forces and then transferred in July 1945 to somewhere “unknown”. Apparently after that they lost them or they escaped. I’m sure with research you can at least get some idea of what happened to these guys. These come from the advanced collection of Jay Gillespie and are absolutely authentic, being produced just after the war. I’ve have not seen anything like these available in the collector market and it’s possible you will never get a chance to own one again. All cards are roughly 5.5in x 3.5 in on standard photo card stock. AGFA produced the cards so they have the same glossy look that period photos have. Card condition does vary as well as amount of gloss present. All cards are numbered, the highest we have is 37, but there may be more…??… #19 is described as a Gestapo agent and photograph(er?). The card is in pretty good shape but there is some staining to the right side of the picture. The photo is rather dark.
