Does anyone have an award role for this decoration? I wonder if many enlisted men earned this award.

Deruelle's, Don's, and the first one posted by Thomas (Homerjey) appear to be all from the same dies.

What's opinion on the second cross Thomas Posted? 

The first one I assume is a bury.

A special one being sold on the next Thies' auction... "mit Brillianten"... ;-)

Eine Sonderform des Kreuzes mit Brillianten wurde nur einmal an den Kommandanten des 6. Thüringischen Infantrie-Regiments Nr. 95, Oberst von Selle, verliehen. Der Herzog selbst besaß auch ein Exemplar.

Interesting thread about pictures of von Selle, posted by Christophe.

What's the general opinion about this one? A good Meybauer? Does anyone know who made the award pieces?

Stunning crosses!

Quite interesting that at least 3 different pin setups exist of a badge awarded for so few. Of course some may be private purchase pieces, but anyway.

So it is.... Is this cross still in your collection Thomas? I found my pics from an auction on eBay.de

So does Bury and Leonhardt Hanau supply award pieces and is this one?

I notice that it does not have the notches either side of the pin that Don's and Christophe's show.
