A pair of Adolf Hitler’s cufflinks have gone under the hammer at auction in the UK – and sold for a whopping £1,600.

The swastika-shaped cufflinks were reportedly a personal gift from Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini to the German Nazi leader.

They have the fasces, the original symbol of fascism in Mussolini’s Italy, superimposed over the swastika.
