Two “Mein Kampf” books signed by Adolf Hitler sold at a Los Angeles, California, auction for $64,850, according to a Yahoo! News report on Friday afternoon.

The two rare and early editions of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” net 11 bids on Thursday. The editions of the book were from 1925 and 1926.

Nate D. Sanders Auctions handled the auction. Laura Yntema, the auction manager asserted that anonymous buyers from the United States bought the two books. According to Nate D. Sanders Auctions, The two books were given to Josef Bauer by Hitler. Bauer was an early follower of Hitler’s and took part in the Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 in Munich, Germany.

While 1930s volumes of Hitler’s “Mein Kamp” are quite common, copies signed by Adolf Hitler are not common at all.

Both volumes that were sold at auction had a note to Hitler’s friend in which Hitler wished him best wishes for the Christmas season.

The auction house receives a 25 percent commission on the sale.
