Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf to exceed $7,000 at History Hunter Auctions?

A copy of Mein Kampf personally owned by Adolf Hitler is up for sale at History Hunter Auctions in the US.

Bidding stands at $7,100, with the auction running until November 1.

Hitler Mein Kampf
Hitler's personal copy of Mein Kampf was taken from his apartment in Munich in 1945

The lot is part of a collection of pieces taken from Hitler's apartment in Munich by 1st LT Philip Lieber following the allied capture of the city in 1945.

The lot includes three other books liberated by Lieber, as well as the chance to meet his family in Miami.  

The auction house commented: "The book is a rather non-descript 1932 edition in near-mint condition, except for the Adolf Hitler bookplate affixed to the inside front cover, the only copy owned by the author, known to exist…

"Obviously, Hitler probably had multiple editions of his own book, but this one was kept in the Munich apartment, and so was almost certainly read by Hitler at some point."

A copy of Mein Kampf signed by Hitler sold for $64,500 at Nate D Sanders back in February, while another edition recovered from his bunker made £42,000 ($67,636) in 2013.

It's likely that the huge historical importance of the book, along with its strong provenance, will ensure it achieves a similar price.

We have an incredible autographed typed letter from Winston Churchill available.
