I definitely would agree that the EK was automatic in this case.

All very nice citations, guys!!

I would not pay spit extra for Sperrle, all the LW ones have a good name on them, but I agree this unit is fantastic !!!!! Probably worth what the Sperrle inflation was!

I agree, and I think the same goes for Kesselring signatures. In my experience he signed A LOT of EK documents from 1940-1943. His is an interesting signature to own but it certainly isn't uncommon. Generally, its the air units on the docs that he signed that are often more desireable than his actual signature.
