I have always had my eye on this award,and I know it's a rare bird.To me this and the B.O. may be the best looking badge that came out of the Reich.

Anyone, Enlisted or Officer who was awarded the Coburg badge automatically was eligible for the totenkopf ring. I have never heard of this..I did get this from wikipedia,which I normally never do,but I thought it was interesting.

During the Third Reich some badges were bestowed automatically, Soldiers receiving the RK that didn't have an EK1 or EK2 got those two awarded immediately before the RK.

How many Coburg awardees were also given other party awards,especially the 2 ultimate party badges,The Blood Order,and the Gold party badge?

I would assume ALL 450 Coburg recipients would be eligible for the Blood Order,and Gold Party Badge.

I'm hoping someone knows a ballpark figure off the top of their heads( and this wouldn't surprise me in the least!). I'm trying to cross reference but 450 is a lot of peeps to be searching and may take a bit of time :)



A quick breakdown


Coburg badge: 450

Blood ORder: 1500 (16 women received the award,another fact that I was unaware of)

Gold party badge: 100,000

Yeah it would be nice to have a full list, but almost impossible.I'm looking for more of a percentage of the 450 that got all three badges, not necessarily a definitive number.Not sure if that makes sense to you?

Right,but it would be interesting to know who had all 3,I'll get to it eventually :)



SS Standartenführer Jakob Grimminger had the Coburg Badge, Golden Party Badge and the Blood Order.

See the SS Dienstaltersliste 1942. Grimminger is Nr 45 (page 5).

Hi, Eric


So, I have a rare day off, the dog has been walked… it’s cold, wet and windy and I thought that a bit of research in to the holders of the GPB/ BO/CB would be a good way to spend the day.


To help you along a little in your research, I have been through the 432 pages of the 1938/39 “Dienstaltersliste der Schutzstaffel der NSDAP (SS)†and have come across the following members of the SS that were holders of the “threeâ€â€¦.this includes SS Standartenführer Jakob Grimminger posted by Turtle.


So: Members of the SS who held the Golden Party Badge, Blood Order and Coburg Badge (1938/39)


Name..................Party Number / SS Number


Buch, Walter............... 7733 / 81353

Amann, Max................. 3 / 53143

Graf, Ulrich............... 8 / 26

Maurice, Emil.............. 39 / 2

Füss, Simon................ 72008 / 1700

Eggerdinger, Max........... 14463 / 280332

Grimminger, Jakob.......... 758 / 135

Hirschberg, Paul........... 907 / 99829

Kellner, Karl.............. 45052 / 2636

Göbel, Paul................ 14302 / 712

Pertl, Josef............... 25015 / 55332




Extremely low numbers when you consider that there are approx’ 14000 members of the SS mentioned in this particular ‘Dienstaltersliste’.


Anyway, hope this helps…


Found this on the Net... Members of SS Div Wiking, one of which is wearing the CB.

Himmler did not receive the Coburg Badge.

the recipient of my BO # 626 Franz Fuchs who was with the SA Munich was also awarded the Coburg badge, GPB and the 1929 RPT badge.

    • 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.
