The award document for the German Cross in silver is a fake. See:

http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=31793&hl=

Since you have just received it, I hope you have no problems with getting your very real money back. :speechless1:

While it also always possible for CLEVER bad guys to try mocking up award paperwork to somebody real, they can't get away with imaginary recipients any more. The rolls have been published, and what may well be the COMPLETE seniority lists for the entire German army officer corps in WW2 have just been discovered in various places in Germany and are being scanned now.

GMIC is the place to ask first. :rolleyes:

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this.
