  1. Hi Bombarder, "... so i guess it was awarded early 1950-ies?" There existed different organizations with there own numbering. And these badges had been awarded for one year or for three years of excellent service. For a correct date you need the associated document. Uwe
  2. This is my highest rank, Generalleutnant Johannes von Busse, commander of the 210. Infanterie-Brigade, later commander of the 111. Infanterie-Division
  3. Here it is for a direct comparison. Mielke loved to receive many decorations! Please see here, nearly 200 decorations Mielke Auszeichnungen Uwe
  4. Hi Megan, "I'd guess this is a fantasy bar of whatever ribbons the vendor could get his paws on." Please see my previous comment. This bar is based on a bar of Armeegeneral Mielke, but it is not the original. The various organisations set great value on conferring their decorations on Mielke! Uwe
  5. Hi, the basic motto of the organization was "Treu in Freud und treu in Leid". For the Freud (Freude > joy) stand the Fez, and for the Leid (Leiden > suffering) stand the Totenkopf. Uwe
  6. Hi, in traditional German shooting clubs we find an annual shooting around the best shooter (Schützenkönig). The second best shooter is often called First Knight (I. Ritter), the third best shooter Second Knight (2. Ritter). Uwe
  7. Hi Deutschritter, "... why did Generalfeldmarschälle sometimes wear the General-Kragenspiegel and sometimes ones like in this picture?" Those Generalfeldmarschälle were also Colonel-in-Chief of a regiment, and they could wear the Marschall collar tabs or the regimental collar tabs. Uwe
  8. Im Prinzip ja! There are several different badges with "Typ 1". They are mostly older than the same badges with the other Types (2 - 5), and yes, they normally have a higher value. For the differences you need the appropiate catalogue from Frank Bartel. Uwe
  9. In his calalogues about DDR (GDR) decorations and medals Frank Bartel classify these nuts as "Typ 1", a srew with a large base and the nut with PRÄWEMA. "Typ 2" is the same screw and the nut without any marking. The time range is from the 50s to the 60s. Uwe

  11. This is the first type, awarded 1956 to Manfred Ewald, since 1961 president of the DTSB (Deutscher Turn- und Sportbund) in the DDR: Uwe
