I would like to mention first that I have, on the 9th of November 1923, created a cast medal, the "Hitler Putsch" (K-302) which hit the bullseye."
The medal shows the then Ministerpresident, von Kahr, at the lectern in the Bürgerbräu cellar just as Hitler stepped on the podium with a drawn revolver. Below the podium sits a typical Munich citizen, with his stein of beer, looking puzzled. The reverse shows the march to the Feldherrnhalle. This building itself is shown as the scene of a puppet show with the title: Munich Theater. In front of it, teenage men with swastika flags, gallows, etc, are sarcastically presented. Behind the curtain stands von Kahr with a mounted gun. Between them, as a laughing third, is a Communist pointing at both of them.
This medal I sent to the coin dealer, Fr. Gebert, in Nuremberg, one of my middlemen. Since I settled in Munich in 1904, I had a very pleasant relationship with the father and founder of the company, C.F. Gebert, an honorable man who commanded the respect of all, in scientific as well as business connections. But how different is his son. During his frequent visits, the senior discussed his son in a critical manner. This I remember very well, because of the unfair treatment I received from the son. Gebert junior rushed to Julius Streicher (the Nazi editor of the pornographic and anti-Semitic periodical, Der Stürmer) to obtain a judgment on my medal design, "Hitler-Putsch." In his little numismatic news bulletin that he issued, he mentioned this meeting. The Stürm also repeated the story (June 1924) which can be read in the clippings. It was clear that I had hit the nail right on the head, which did not bother me too much.
