DESCRIPTION

This pill box was originally surfaced by Andreas of www.OD43.com, who states in his sales literature that it was obtained from a veteran who acquired it from the Berghof in 1945.  The item can still be seen by clicking here.  Here is the text from his website:

Offered for sale is a pill box that used to belong to Eva Braun and that was taken from the Berghof in 1945 by an American GI who had the great luck of being stationed there. His son, Mark Griffith, M.D. was fascinated by the treasures that his father brought home and he started collecting military and Third Reich artifacts. He also wrote two books on Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun memorabilia. Engraved on the lid are Eva Braun's initials. Albert Speer designed a distinctive logo for her, he arranged her initials 'E' and 'B' so that they look like a butterfly or shamrock. There are many Eva Braun artifacts that are having engravings of her initials that look different than the well known logo because she had many of her items 'personalized' by local jewelers, just like in this case. When it came to clothes it was ten done by Eva herself. It is a widely known fact that she personalized virtually all her clothing by applying her 'EB' logo. The dimensions of the pill box are 1-1/4 x 1-1/4 inch. A rare and unusual original Third Reich artifact!

The pill box is part of a group of material, also listed in this auction cycle (the brush, the opera glasses).  I have provided a photo of the group here, but this lot is ONLY for the pill-box.
