Default Opinions on Hitler Engraving

This was given to me many years ago by a New York doctor who found it stashed in a colleague's closet, along with a lot of other Nazi material. It measures 9 3\4 x 12 inches, is engraved by O. Krenzer and printed by Bruckmann of Munich. It is on high quality paper, and I'm assuming the signature is printed.

I think that it is wonderful! Do you see any year marking?

No year on it, but I'm assuming 1930's? Any ideas on what this thing is worth, as I'll probably put it for sale

O. Krenzer was a period artist who's forte was mediocre quality portrait sketches of Adolf Hitler. His work appeared in numerous NSDAP and SS publications; song books, guide books, holiday books, etc.

The signature on your sketch is a facsimile, and the document would have been part of a larger volume, or sold for relief efforts or fund rasing.

Value is minimal.
