RK kvk "20" Weitze?s page


Recommended Posts

Saw that Weitze got a Rkkvk Zimmermann goldplated...

Sounds that 6000euro is a very "good" price for a goldplated rkkvk!?

Can it be a real rkkvk in gold class or is it a "simple" silver one?

Picture found on Weitzes page:

I think its an error in the decsription. This is a regular silver Cross. They did have a cased Gold Zimmermann RK a couple of weeks back and there was no doubt the colour was Gold. Can't recall the price but it certainly wasn't 6000 Euro.

The price was ?27,000 from memory but I can't recall that it was a Zimmermann.

I know the guy who bought it and he is very happy with his purchase!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but these version with swords were never actually awarded where they? I remember reading somewhere that the only RK d. KVK in Gold ever officially bestowed were the versions without swords. The Reichsminister of Transportation (can't think of his name off-hand) was one of the recipients - I think.

Quite correct. There are no known awards of the Gold RK with Swords. Only two awards are known in Gold without Swords, to Karl Otto Sauer and Franz Hahn.

Even here, it is far from certain that they actually physically received the award. More likely they were simply notified that they had been awarded the decoration but never received it before the war ended. (e.g. Hahn's letter notifying him of the award is dated 20 April 1945)

Only two awarded and perhaps only 2-5 pieces made...must be one of the most rarest awards ever...with the Grand cross and Gold/Oaks/Swords/Brilliants...

    • 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.
