more ...

There will be an auction this fall at one of the major dealer houses - it'll feature some serious items from Mielke.

Among the lots planned for sale are: Karl Marx order with Award Gramota, Sharnhorst medal, uniforms, documents, etc.

HSU may be one of the lots for sale...

The auction will take place in Hamburg, on 11 September 2004.
I don't think it is allowed here to mention the name of the auction house.
Will be auctioned very "serious" pieces of Erich Mielke.

Hereafter is how the auction has been publicised in some media :

"The order medals ''Hero of the DDR'', right, and ''Karl Marx Orden'', left, of the former longtime head of the secret police of the former communist German Democratic Republic, Erich Mielke, photographed in Hamburg, northern Germany, on Thursday, Aug. 19, 2004. Some 170 items that belonged to Erich Mielke are going on auction, including dozens of medals for his service in the cause of Communism and Mielkes former DDR diplomats passport. Auctioneer (...) said he hopes the collection will fetch some 100,000 euro (US$123,000) when it goes on the block Sept. 11, 2004 in Hamburg."

Erich Mielke HSU is included in this top end auction.
Please, have a look to the auction house site. It is extraordinary !!

Here is the description of the HSU lot (Lot N° 129) :

" Sowjetunion, Medaille Goldener Stern zum Held der Sowjetunion. Goldener Stern an vergoldeter Bandtragespange, Verleihungsnummer "11565", im Verleihungsetui. Dazu die großformatige Verleihungsurkunde vom 25. Dezember 1987, anläßlich seines Geburtstages. Die in Leder gebundene Urkunde mit Goldprägung im großformatigen Lederkasten. Dazu der Trägerausweis eines "Helden der Sowjetunion" mit Lichtbild, sowie das Ordensbuch mit eingetragener Verleihungsnummer. Neben Erich Honecker war Generaloberst Erich Mielke einer der wenigen deutschen Helden der Sowjetunion.
I-II
€ 2500,00 "

Another top end item. The order is indeed associated to the document.

Let's imagine what will be the result of the Hamburg one !! The auctioneer's target of 100,000 € should easily be exceeded.

Has someone the complete result of this Hamburg auction ?
What the auction house indicates on its website as the result of the sale, does not seem to be consistent (specifically lot numbers do not fit...).

I contacted them, but no reply....

Any idea ?

Ch.

well, what you saw in the "auction" catalogue after september 11th, was the remaining items proposed at start price+10%. About the Mielke's legacy, everything, absolutely everything is gone. I'll give you all prices. The sales result list is downlodable in Word or Pdf...

Sebastien,

Compared to "ordinary" or "common" HSU's prices, that's a deal !!!!!!

Many thanks.

Guys,

Just out of curiosity, how do you feel about all his medals and documents going to different collectors? I understand that it is hard to find an individual collector, who could afford to buy them all, but still
