REICHSMUSIKKAMMER ID CARD (Musician) 1939-43
Issued by the Reichs Culture Ministry

Stock # 1002
Category: ID Cards, Reichskulturkammer
Type:  STAMPS (& Feldposts)
Price: $180.00

Very rare ID card, especially during the beginning of the peak war years when every young available man was needed. This card belonged to a young musician by the name of Karl Sterobasnik. This handsome young man's photo however, reveals his left eye being somewhat defective, both in color and positioning (David Bowie-style for those who can relate to the similarity). Perhaps this is what kept him off the battlefields. Card shows age and mended spine, but is compensated by the fact it is loaded with dues stamps from 1939 through 1943-- a really nice card. Very rare and for a variety of reasons, some which we've already addressed.
