  1. No, that date signifies something else, not a time of his death. cheers Matt
  2. Hello Ruslan, Here's the recipient of your medal numbered 1246: cheers Matt
  3. The golden party badge 9817 was awarded to Ernst Einecke. Matt
  4. As much as we know about medals being reproduced for veterans post 1945, they were also produced pre 1945 for original recipients. And not only in Spain but also elsewhere (Italy comes to mind). Your medal has typical Spanish verso set-up, "short" swastikas that are also present on other Spanish made pieces, overall lack of quality when compared to their German made counterparts and few other features that in my eyes make it a variant that was made in Spain. Unfortunately I could not tell you when it was made- perhaps one of our GEO collector friends will pitch in- but judging by toned gilt over brass base- I'd say no later than 1950-60s. Perhaps even pre 1945 but that's an supposition on my part only. Either way- an uncommon piece so congratulations! Here's another Spanish made GEO, this time in miniature- picture courtesy emedals.com
  5. It looks to be Spanish made variant judging by its construction.
  6. Yes, it appears it has been sold.
  7. Last one I've seen come up for sale had a price tag of $60.000 Euros. cheers Matt
  8. If memory serves there are 6 documented originals worldwide, made by Juncker for only a few months. Originals are very rare and very expensive. The above badge is a copy.
  9. Thats a one fine cross you got there John. Congrats cheers Matt
