Item 64 - Manfred von Richthofen Catalog 419 (Nov 2013)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $5,948.40 (includes buyer's premium)


Fabled German military pilot (1892–1918) who shot down 80 enemy planes in World War I before he was killed in action at age 25. Rare vintage 3.25 x 5.25 postcard photo of von Richthofen in military dress, signed in fountain pen, “Fr[eiherr] M. von Richthofen, Rittmeister.” In fine condition, with the signature a shade light. Von Richthofen did not become well known enough to be asked for autographs until 1916, and he was killed just two years later. In between, he was usually in combat at the front and, in any case, a veritable recluse, so very few people were given the chance to meet him. The combination of these circumstances account for the extraordinary rarity of this most coveted of military and aviation personalities. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
