Signed by the debtor Schäffler and the baron von Gemmingenschen Amtsmann Herrmann, who also seals the document. On the reverse is an inscription in Hebrew letters.

2) Oppenheimer, Sara. Will with signature, Hoffenheim (OT Sinsheim), 17 August 1810. German manuscript on paper, 4 p. on 4 sheets, c. 34 x 20.5 cm, browned, creases at margins. Testament of Sara Oppenheimer (1751-1814), widow of the protective Jew Isaak (Itzig) Oppenheimer (1744-1810), who leaves her entire fortune to her son Emanuel bedridden, but "with quite good and correct understanding", since her remaining five children had already been brought to the point. Made out and signed by the clerk Carl Hess, with eigh. U. the Sara O as well as four witnesses (Schultheiß Kapp, Johannes König des Gerichts, Johannes Egler and Wilhelm Flick), who also seal the document. - With the very rare fiscal stamp "KUR BAD:" to 30 Kreuzer (cf. Eckert/Morscheck/Wagner, Stempelgesetze und Gebühren in Baden von 1628 bis 1952, Leipzig 2015, p. 97 No. 4). - The will was made by the "Jewish leader" Zacharias Oppenheimer (1773-1827, cloth manufacturer).

Isaak Oppenheimer was the younger brother of Löw Oppenheimer. Both parents were Rabbi Zacharias Oppenheimer Hoffenheim and Klara Freud. The cloth manufacturer Zacharias was her nephew.

The Oppenheimer family is one of the most important Jewish families in history. They were related to the Wertheimer, Cohen, Gomperz, and Guggenheim families, produced numerous scholars and bankers, and were of great importance in international high finance and politics.
