Price: $235.00

Beautiful VIP ticket for the 1937 "Day of German Art" in Munich. This ticket is for a VERY high-ranking Reich official and is for the plush front box seats which was built for the opening ceremony, the first three seats equipped with a desk and microphone for opening speeches, etc. This ceremony seating box was built to hold 100 people (plus the three desk/seats in the very front which consisted of a main seat for Hitler, plus two seats on his right and left, just about 12" behind him) . The one hundred seats were divided into 25 elevated rows, each row having four very plush, roomy chairs - (theorectically 25 Reich VIPs and their wives and/or guest). This ticket is for row # 22 and is, amazingly, unused-!

The ticket itself is a beautiful work of art, measuring approx. 5x7" and having a higly detailed embossed image of the Day of German Art logo in gold.

Card has a light vertical stress crease on the left side and just a hint of a very light crease on top, but otherwise the ticket is super bright and clean and VF+. Very high grade.

A phenomenally important piece of the Reich's cultual history and certainly a piece which will not appear anywhere else any time soon- if ever-!- and available for well below the price of a well-used army helmet (of which there were millions made).
