A direct veteran purchase by me, this is the amber Mein Kampf presented by the Reichskohlenkommissar und Reichsfachamtsleiter of the Reichsfachamt "Das Deutsche Handwerk" of the DAF Paul Walter, who was an SS member (SS-Nr. 276699).  The presentation page translates to 'To the warm-hearted sponsor of the Handwork Reichsführer SS Pg. Heinrich Himmler, (from) the grateful Deutsche Handwerk'. His signature has a hammer for the 'P' in Paul. The cover is layered with amber tiling with a 3 dimensional early political eagle,  and the title and 'Adolf Hitler' are hand cut from 800 silver.  There are metal bosses in each corner, front and back, to protect the covers from wear and damage.  The spine and back cover are bound in beige leather.  A hand embossed metal latch keeps the book securely closed, as is found on medieval books.  Inside the back cover is a metal plate noting the amber work was manufactured by "Norddeutsche Bernstein-Industrie" in Königsberg/Pr. 1. Bernsteinhaus".  Just in: I have located the video that I shot on the day I purchased this directly out of the woodwork.  It's 14 minutes long, and the seller rambles a bit, but all the information is there.  Also note that I will be more than happy to connect the winner to the family/seller of this artifact.
