St. Michael’s Letter Himmelsbrief

This is the so-called “St Michael’s Letter” version of the Himmelsbrief broadside (heaven-sent letter of protection supposed to have been written by God Himself). The original was said to have been written in golden letters. This extremely rare edition is written in black Fraktur letters.  Obviously the item was frequently handled, but it is miraculous that it has survived such heavy use. It has a number of holes and tears which previous generations of owners taped. Most of the tape has recently been removed professionally but there is some tape remaining which reinforces the outer edges of the paper. Measures approximately 17 X 13 ¾ inches.
