Hptm. Humburg (Malta campaign) - Luftwaffe Honor Goblet (Alpaka)


Description

Luftwaffe Honor Goblet to Hauptmann Hans Humburg serving with Kampfgeschwader 54. In June 1942, he did not return after a night flight over Malta. With him, three members of the Wehrmacht were also missing. Due to his rank and his upcoming transfer to the headquarters in Berlin, he should not have carried out this mission. The mission already gave rise to speculation at that time. He was also a close friend of Generalmajor Otto Höhne. Humburg was declared dead in 1959. 

The Honor Goblet comes directly from his daughter and has never been on the market.

Luftwaffe Honor Goblet. "FEINSILBER AUFLAGE ALPAKA" marked and "JOH.WAGNER&SOHN" maker marked to the bottom. Engraved "Hauptmann Hans Humburg am 25.6.42. No dents. Lovely patina. 

Weight: 370 gr.

We also offer the Iron Cross 1st Class of Hptm. Humburg in our 41. Contemporary Auction. Please note item number 2000000523422.
