How about posting your photos of these interesting badges, 1st and 2nd class, as worn on uniforms. Here's the 1st one from me...I'd love to know his name!

Ribbons too blurry for me, but maybe Glenn can get the General from his face.

A highly unlikely recipient:

Bizarrely, he's wearing his 1st Class Silesian eagle with an UN-updated pre-war medal bar!

:Cat-Scratch: Not only that, but the weirdo is wearing his Brunswick "Bew?hrungsabzeichen" on his tunic pocket instead of on the ribbon of his Ernst August Cross where it belongs!!!! :speechless1::speechless1::speechless::speechless1::speechless1:

Count Drakkalah too:

Ohhhhhkay, his name was really Paul Hartlaub, a former career officer who went into the Landwehr and had himself snapped in buzz-cut, white tie and tails, obligatory monocle, and NSDAP Officials stickpin... for Christmas 1938:

5 years after the Xs were supposed to have been banned. :rolleyes:

And here is another Freaky View over in the New Improved Authorized Ribbon Bar Article-In-Progress:

I have one to add. There are swords on the ribbon bar but not on the badge.

That looks like a Meybauer glossy enamel one. :jumping:

Great photos. The elderly gent in post #4 is wearing the Iron Cross 1st Class, but no 2nd class...?

hallo christophe,

if you check the other thread concerning these silesian eagles you will see a possible reason for the crooked swords.
