    Recommended Posts

    Dear forumites,


    I'd like to show you a group of ribbon bars I managed to purchase at Reichertshofen which belonged to Generalleutnant and Ritterkreuzträger Friedrich Zickwolff (see also: http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/Personenregister/Z/ZickwolffFriedrich-R.htm )

    His uniform and medal bar were sold by Hermann Historica, years ago in 2013:

    Very nice items Claudio. Of course it's always depressing to see Nachlaesse being split up.

    at least here we still know the origin of the single pieces of the group. There are so many pieces forever detached from their former owner.
