We are always pleased to offer you patents (two) for one officer, particularly a naval officer. They are for a medical doctor named Wilhelm Haltermann. The two documents are described below.
1). Dr. Haltermann was promoted to Marine-Ober-Assistenzarzt on 27 March 1909. The document was prepared at the Neues Palais. The document measures 8 ½” x 14″ when closed, and 17″ x 14″ when opened. It is set up with four pages, although only two are used. Its second page features a large embossed Hohenzollern Eagle.
2). The second document is set up in a similar fashion. In this document we see that Dr. Haltermann was promoted to Marine-Stabsarzt in 1912. Again, the embossed Hohenzollern Eagle appears. This promotion, however, features Kaiser Wilhelm II’s large and bold signature. At this time we do not know what service if any that Dr. Haltermann had during and after WW I. Any additional information on him would be greatly appreciated from our audience.
It is a fine pair of documents. As they are to a navy doctor, we can be assured that they are scarce.
