No idea but I think his Reichmarshal Interimsstab ( white ivory shaft) or his Fieldmarshal Interimsstab( black shaft) are extremely rare.

[QUOTE=filfoster;8647816]OK, 2 cups of coffee and 45 minutes later, I have gone through this wonderful thread. With the Mythos book, it's a great reference. QUOTE]

The book contains fakes also.
The Reichenau one is bad amongst others.

Amazing and unique display of 2 batons, seen at the table of Jason Burmeister (Military Antiques). Historical pieces of Walter von Reichenau and Albert Kesselring. (Photo credits to Pieter Verbruggen)

Seeing these pics makes me envious that there's a MRS Burmeister who would allow the expenditure for these beauties.....

I would be given a choice of which I preferred to live with.

Everyone who has seen the original von Reichenau baton at the SOS will see the differences now

Does anyone know what any of these batons sold for in their histories? I can assume any value is highly subjective.

I do believe this is Kesselring Baton which sold for $731,600 in 2010.

Wow! That is much more than I could have ever imagined. While it’s cool and all, that’s a ton of money for an object that really had no bearing on history! I am kind of curious what was the subject matter and the price of the most famous WWII German document ever sold.
