Belloq German Passport
(click on image to enlarge)
This original replica prop of Dr. Rene Emile Belloq’s German Passport with 12 FREE inserts has taken many months of research and creativity to complete. It is based on an authentic 1930's German Passport. The outer cover has the period accurate German eagle on it as well as the texture and color of the cover itself. The inner faces of the cover also features paper veins as caused when the passport book is handled. Each page also has the accurate watermarks in the background.
The inner pages have some rubber stamps purposely cut off the page, which are similar to real passports. There are a total of 32 pages, of which 20 of them have stampings on them along with 16 “glued on” duty tax stamps. Each page is packed with many of Belloq's travels from around the globe in his quest for the Ark of the Covenant. The passport measures: 4” wide X 6” high X 1/4” thick (10.6cm wide X 15.2cm high X 0.64cm thick).
The entire passport follows Belloq’s pursuit for the most coveted treasure of the Israelite's: the Ark of the Covenant. Each page is printed double sided with an industrial Laser Jet book printer on heavy bond paper for detail. Since these replica passports are entirely assembled by hand, there are some very minor variations to each of them making them completely one of a kind. Once you see the passport yourself, you'll feel like you could have traveled with it as Belloq!
