DESCRIPTION

Early production Totenkopf Ring conferral document, considered to be the "Type II" as documented on page 70 of my book on Totenkopf Rings.  The type I, which was used exclusively during Christmas 1933, is exceptionally rare (I have only seen ONE such document).  Accordingly, this "Type II" is for all practical purposes, the first style.  The main difference from the "Christmas 1933" documents and this type, is that the opening printed salutation uses the word "verleihe" which translates, "I confer to you."  The date on the document is 14 May 1935, and the pre-printed date field uses "Munich" instead of the later "Berlin."  Also, the "SS" is gothic rather than the SS runic script.  These are all textbook features of the 1934-1935 style documents.  Awarded to SS Untersturmfuhrer Kluge, bearing SS number 6153, the document features a bold black Himmler signature.  The document is printed on the only correct paper for this document, which bears the watermark of the paper maker, KoH-I-Noor.  The paper bears a rust mark from a paperclip on the upper left side, two hole punches on the left side from being fastened in a record book, one very minor tear at the center fold, and a tiny bit of corner damage to the bottom right corner.  Worthy of further research, this is an outstanding example.
