Thanks Paul, like you I am also novice when it comes to a badge like this. One thing that I would expect to see with something as scarce as this would be some provenance, this the seller does not have.

Cheers stephen.

I'm afraid this is definitely a copy. One of the East European fakes usually referred to as "Latvian" made.

Most instantly obvious give-away is the far too wide and too bright red enamel ring under the wreath, but there are lots of other problems with it too.

(The details are correct in that an officer named Rudolf Meyer from U-1055 did win the German Cross on 7 Feb 1945, but not a snowball's chance in hell of this being it.)

Any opinions on this DKiG would be much appericiated, maker Klein.

As you can see it has been engraved and awarded to OBLT R MEYER 07.02.45 U-1055.

Thanks Stephen.

Dear Stephen,

in my opinion the cross is a sure reproduction.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
