Old Gold Bookmark Discovered - Stolen, But Worth Cash

Reuters announced this week that a historical gold bookmark used by Hitler was recovered after being stolen.

The bookmark, made of 18 karat gold, was given to Hitler by Eva Braun, his mistress. It is estimated that the gold piece was a present from Braun after Hitler lost the Battle of Stalingrad in 1943. The gold bookmark is believed to have belonged to an executed armed forces chief prior to being acquired by Braun. The bookmark has a message from Braun to Hitler that is translated as “My Adolf, don’t worry…only an inconvenience that will not break your certainty of victory. My love for you will be eternal”

The gold bookmark was recovered in a sting operation by the US Justice Department after receiving information that someone was trying to sell the bookmark. The bookmark was stolen from a Spanish auction house in 2002 before it was to be sold. The thief faces up to 10 years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine.
