1945. V1-flown leaflet for Allied troops in the Netherlands. "'Know Ye by these Presents'" - site of the find: Netherlands - flown with V1 and dropped on the Americans in Holland in the aftermath of the Battle of the Bulge in Feb 1945. Leaflet printed on both sides; the English text invites General Dwight D. Eisenhower to come to Hungary with a self-chosen delegation and see the victims of the 'bestial' Bolsheviks [Russians] and witness the atrocities they committed. An identical leaflet, coded SKJ 2012 and in a different format, was shelled to American troops in Northwest Europe. Days after the V1 version was dropped it was reproduced on another leaflet with an additional text and a prominent "NO ANSWER"; this was disseminated by aircraft. On the back was the famous French WW-I cartoon "C'est sa main".' A rare V1 leaflet with provenance from the Joseph Nagl Jr collection cited in Auckland's work 'V1 Rocket Propaganda Leaflets'.
For this lot an additional 7% for Import Expenses (Taxes) will be charged.
