Authentic & Exrare olympic Torch from Berlin Summer Olympics 1936 Germany

This is an authentic Olympic Torch from the Berlin Olympics of 1936, given as award of the bearer in the Olympic relay in Bulgaria. It is a 100% authentic, original Torch from Berlin Summer Olympiad 1936. Manufactured by Friedrich Krupp AG. There were only 3840 torches made.
The 1936 Summer Olympics torch relay was the first of its kind, it pioneered the modern convention of moving the flame via a relay system from Greece to the Olympic venue. The route's length in Bulgaria was 238 km, so there were 238 people who ran with the torch. Every torch was to remain for the person who carried it. The Bulgarian Olympic committee recommended that the torch could be used as a candlestick after the Olympiad. We don’t have information whether all torches in royal Bulgaria stayed with their bearers. After 1945, when Bulgarian communist party came to power, all items related to royal Bulgaria and the German Reich were banned and destroyed. The same situation holds true in the other former socialist countries.
