DRSILVER #45398 Reichsbahn “DR” Lobster Fork from Hitler’s Dining Car

This lobster fork is a very rare item and it is the DR silver that is marked 800 being from the service used in Hitler’s dining car. It is also marked “244” which is the number for this car.

The fork is 8 inches long tapering to a very thin end with two prongs. It has the flat edge of the sides and the flat edge at the bottom which identifies this as the “fancy” pattern reserved for Hitler’s car. At the bottom there is an open winged railway eagle clutching a swastika with the initials “D” and “R”. The reverse is marked with a crescent a crown “800” and an eagle.

The piece has never been cleaned. Just think of how rare this must be as in Hitler’s car I doubt there were more than 6 to eight people served at the table and certainly there were not many occasions to eat lobster let alone use many of these lobster forks. A very rare artifact here.
