  1. hello all, I wonder what medal or badge was given to the wounded and killed in combat, in the Imperial German States before the establishment of the wound badge in 1918? either during the first years of the Great War or earlier (Franco- Prussian war, Austro- Prussian war, Prussian-Denmark war, and even further back if possible, the Napoleonic wars, etc) Thanks in advance Humberto
  2. Thank you all for your contributions! 2 things come to my mind: First: could then be said that just the EK II German States equivalent medals were awarded in the same way to a wounded soldier in combat? not higher awards? Seccond: when see the set of recommendations for Friedrichkreuz that Dave show us, surprised me the thoroughness and elitism of some German states to grant their awards, even the lower grade, compared with Prussia to grant their Iron Crosses. it looks like their considered better their awards because they wait until the soldier had already earned or been proposed for the Iron Cross as Dave said, is that correct? I hope I have expressed myself correctly Thanks again!
  3. Thanks Gordon for show this awards! did not know them. if I am correct, the silver ehrennadel was issued in two versions? silver with blue enamel as the sample at the right and also in just silver finish like the one awarded with the document? is the same for the gold grade? thanks Humberto

  5. thank you very much for all your help gentlemen! I got the autograph years ago from a friend and is supposed to be signed and delivered at the moment by Otto Kumm himself. but throughout the years I have seen some postwar signatures of him somewhat different from the one that I have, but I think for your comments that is more likely to be original than a fake. Cordial greetings Humberto

  13. hello all, Recently I read in a spanish blog (was announced as a recent discovery) that there is a proof that the generaloberst Eduard Dietl were promoted to generalfeldmarschall by Hitler and that he also received the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds, soon before he died in 1944 but this was never announced. what do you think? is this true? is the first time I read something like that.

    Fake 1957 RK?

    thank you very much to all for your help, I have learned a lot from you. I think then if the cross in question is not a fake, it is just a piece simply not made by no one of authorized 1957 "version" manufacturers. I am wondering if there is always a way to find if an 1957 version medal or badge was made by one of the authorized manufacturers, I mean have you ever seen an ugly and low quality badge or medal from any of them??? that it was seen prety bad??? copies made by Godet for various dealers with dishonest intentions?? this were manufactured after the war and tried to sell as wartime pieces??
