A 7cm piece of Hitler’s desk is up for auction at Reeman Dansie, with an estimate of £300-500 ($387-646).

It was smuggled out of Soviet occupied Berlin by Lord Balfour.

Lewis Rabeet of Reeman Dansie told the East Anglian Daily Times: “It does not have Nazi insignia on it, so it may not attract interest in that sort of memorabilia, but market for militaria is very strong at the moment and the provenance adds more to it.

“The story is really what makes this special, being sneaked out of the Chancellery building right under the noses of Russian soldiers and whisked back to Britain, it is straight out of the pages of a Cold War spy novel.”
