  1. My books are in storage right now, but I'm sure I read about a St. Heinrich Sonderstufe somewhere.
  2. The Saxon kings wore a 'Sonderstufe' of the order, or special class. I think Goering got his SEHO by strong-arming the old Duke in the 1930's.
  3. I have a book entitled 'Bismarck Denkmal fuer das deutsche Volk' which has many shots of his awards. Unfortunately it is packed away in storage. I'd like to know how he got the Rettungsmedaille.
  4. Jesus, that is crazy money for a Feldschnalle. I thought I was nuts paying 200.00 USD for a Trapetz with devices for the Crown and Schleife to the RAO.
  5. It's true. My uncle fought for years in the west and the east, and was nominated for the EK1 several times. It took until he was promoted in the field to Leutnant in the summer of 1918 before he finally got it. I have a letter from his regimental CO to my great grandfather, apologising for his not getting the EK1 in spite of the CO's best efforts!
  6. There was, I believe, only one manufacturer of the third class, and the flames were separately attached.
