  1. Not sure what it could be. I'm not sure it is the Chinese one as the one being worn seems to have 10 points whereas the Chinese one has 8 and the tiger seems to be taking up a lot of space in the center whereas it doesn't seem that way in the photo. Maybe another Chinese award - or from another country.
  2. It is hard to say. There have been a lot of these various papers on the market that are described as coming from the archive relating to the Graf Spee and I think the jury is out on whether they are original, fakes or copies of originals.
  3. Some interesting photos showing the PE rune. I have a Soldbuch to a Prinz Eugen Knights Cross & DKiG winner but unfortunately it doesn't have his photo in it.
  4. In that case, all good. And the KvK citation confirms that the unit was based in Nürnberg.
  5. Thank you. There is very little information available about these units which are ordnance depots. Feldzeugommando XIII was based in Nürnberg and from September 1943 to October 1944 it was commanded by Gottfried Riemhofer. The lack of a stamp from a static unit is strange and I can not compare the signature with anything as I don't have another example so I can't be 100% certain that this is a genuine example.
  6. I agree, it is a fake. Wrong stamp, poor attempt at Burgdorf's signature (too large a gap between Burg & dorf) and lastly that is a Luftwaffe variant of the citation not Heer.
  7. Richard Walther Darre Born: 14 Jul 1895 Died: 05 Sep 1953 Highest rank held: SS-Gruppenführer Chef Rasse- und Siedlungshauptamt (RuSHA) Reichsministerium für Ernährung und Landwirtschaft (Reich Minister of Food and Agriculture) Reichsbauernführer Author: Das Bauerntum als Lebensquell der Nordischen Rasse (1927) & Neuadel aus Blut und Boden (1930)
  8. Martin Mutschmann Born: 09 Mar 1879 Died: 14 Feb 1947 - Executed in Moscow Gau-jägermeister Sachsen Reichsstatthalter Sachsen
  9. I don't think I've seen one without a stamp. While not common, definitely genuine examples of these award citations to the two sisters do crop up from time to time so might be best waiting and looking around for one with a stamp just to make sure.
  10. I can't say that I have and if this is coming from the same place as the Gneisenau citation then it's possibly best left alone.
  11. It looks like an interesting item. The date for the trip to Romania coincides with the setting up of the German Military Mission in that country. Although he wears a Luftwaffe uniform the rank of Flugzeugfunker is a civilian term and so it could be that he was seconded to Lufthansa and was flying in various civilian aircraft between the countries, maybe shuttling diplomats, diplomatic despatches or VIP's around.
  12. I recently saw this Narvikschild related Soldbuch. Unfortunately it was already sold by the time I saw it. He served in GJR-138.
  13. I'm afraid I've not been able to find anything about his awards either online or in my books. Have you attempted to check the personnel files at NARA to see if they have a copy of his?
