  1. Made a mistake, the general was the last person to be awards Oak Leaves to his KC. Also, the unit was NSKK - Speer before it was merged with the Wehrmacht, he still maintained his NSKK rank.
  2. I just received this spange document that was issued on 2 May 45 and signed by the last person awarded the Knights Cross Generalleutnant Joseph von Radowitz. Jim
  3. Finally with the help of Ben on another forum I have added a long sought after Prinzen Deumer 4 prong spange. I have never seen the case it came in as it looks like a match case. Comments are always welcome. Jim
  4. Agree, nice Deumer. Jim
  5. When it is too cold outside to do anything I decided to redo my collection. Now every spange has its own label, instead of mutiples over one label. I will work on the rest of the collection later. EKI spanges second model. Thanks for looking and thanks to all my fellow collectors who helped me put this collection together. Jim
  6. Beautiful bar and I love the history behind the bar. Jim
  7. Yes Juncker first model and looks like the short vein style. Jim
  8. I bought a stack of documents for Dr Geis who served in WWI and II. Here are his WWI documents.
  9. Bigger pictures of the cross only front and back would help, very difficult to see details with small pictures. But it looks like an L/55 (W&L), has the characteristics (low pin and disc). There are only three makers who didn't mark all their crosses (Meybauer, S&L, and W&L) that I know of. Jim
  10. EKI cases should either marked 621KB or 2420DB under the insert. Jim
  11. I was lucky and picked this up from Militaria-Berlin. A matching set cross/case in outstanding condition. It has a Souval frame.
  12. On the ring is stamped "22" which is the code for Boerger & Co who made the cross. Jim
  13. Forgot to mention but most of the fakes are one piece. Jim
  14. I have gone through my EKI SBs and I think maybe a Meybauer but not sure. The disc is trying to say it is a Wiedmann but I have never seen this disc before (maybe fake). Here is a picture of my Meybauer for comparison. There are new fakes out there that make it hard to be certain (I don't know the fakes).
  15. Nice selection of crosses. Jim
