Stogieman gave me a heads up many moons ago, ther was this. A wound badge doc and a WWI ek2 doc, all looked to have been pulled from the bottom of a garbage can, were on US ebay!

Hello Kevin

I like the Sonderührer (O) citation, I just scored a photo of 3 Songerführer (G) - one rank down from your fella - with the Eisenbahn devices. I will post it when it arrives.

Nice example. The additional image on the top always makes citations more appealing I think.

Indeed, but what I find kind of neat about this cross ist the thick lines, it is a complete different art style... Usually the artwork is much finer. This looks like a better version of what my kids would bo with a black marker! ;.)
