    1. I found the accounts of E. Scherhans and L. von Versen - regarding their Iron Cross award, written in their own words (btw, in 1936 both got also awarded the Hindenburg Cross with swords). If you are still interested, I will post the accounts here.
    2. Andy, are there any names with it? I.m looking for a Lübeck Polizeibeamter by the name of Heinrich Wolf Thanks
    3. A case in point for the old axiom: "With great mustache comes great responsibility" Awesome photo, thanks for showing! .
    4. I have some "Hartpappe backing" photographs from during and after the war but they all without exception have the photographers studio embossed or printed on the cardboard. Also the cardboard is a different type. The cardboard backing on the eBay photograph is not legit IMO. I believe it is a modern copy.
    5. I think The initials SW or WS are not of a wife to a king or even a Grand-Duke - since the five pearl pointed crown indicates the lowest nobility rank. More likely a gift to an officer with the above initials.
    6. the first heraldic crown (Rangkrone) is a king's crown - the second with the 5 points and pearls is a German nobility crown.
