CHESAPEAKE CITY, Md. (AP) — A Maryland auction house is selling a telephone owned by Adolf Hitler.
Bill Panagopulos of Alexander Historical Auctions in Chesapeake City says occupying Russian officers gave the phone to Brig. Sir Ralph Rayner during a visit to Hitler's Berlin bunker. Rayner's son is now selling the red phone with a Nazi party symbol and Hitler's name engraved on the back.
The phone is estimated at $200,000 to $300,000 and Panagopulos says bidding will start at $100,000 this weekend.
