The Vintage German Nurnberg Rally Matchbox was produced to increase morale and promotion efforts for the 1939 Nurnberg Rally. This rally was set to be the "Rally of Peace" for the German people and was to begin on September 2nd, 1939. The German government cancelled this rally the day before it was to begin as this marked the beginning of the offensive against Poland which ignited World War II.
We found these matchboxes in the Baltics and knew we wanted to import them. Due to regulations on shipping matches and wood products, we had all of the original matches removed to satisfy US Customs regulations. No worry though, we've put 10 brand new wooden matches into each box, allowing you to display the matchbox or use it as intended at your next historical event.
