3 envelopes 3 U.S. Stamp Covers Signed by Former German Officers.
Two of the covers are First Day Covers of the "C" stamp, postmarked Oct. 11, 1981, at Memphis, Tennessee. One is signed by Karl-Friedrich Merten, the U-Boat ace. As captain of the Sea, he sunk 27 enemy boats. The other is signed by Kapitan Leutnant Klaus Bargsten, who commanded the boat U-521. When it sunk, he was the sole survivor. The last cover sports an 18 cent "amber waves of grain" stamp and was postmarked June 6, 1981 (the 37th anniversary of D-Day). This one is signed by Bundeswehr General Alfred Mueller. All three have been kept in plastic sleeves.
