Incredible price for a photocopy of a FB

Two bidders bid over 100 euro for a photocopy of this FB:
https://www.ebay.de/itm/Flugbuch-Sie....m43663.l10137

Does anyone know why this FB is so special?

Re: Incredible price for a photocopy of a FB

Hi Rudi

I didn't translate all the German text in the listing but a quick search showed he was:
"General of the Waffen-SS and SS-Obergruppenfuhrer commander of the SS spiritual capital the castle at Wewelsburg"
And flew quite the variety of aircraft.
Just what I found, obviously some one really wanted it no matter that it is a copy.Hope it's helps

Vince...

Maj Richard Taubert was the Kdr of II./KG54 from Oct 1st 1942 till Mar 28th 1943 and at the same time he supposed to be "2nd Burghauptmann" of the Wewelsburg with the rank of SS-Obergruppenführer en General der Waffen-SS???

Clearly 2 different persons. This is what I found in Henry L. deZeng IV and Douglas G. Stankey Luftwaffe Officer Career Summaries DB:

Re: Incredible price for a photocopy of a FB

These offers from the provider in ebay I also noticed already.

Many of the copies are mostly bought by the same person when you looking at the ebay-reviews from the seller.

It's crazy what the seller (former book author) with these copies in recent months has earned a money!
