    Grand Cross has a gold star body and Grand Officer a silver star body-- cannot determine color for this one.

    I thought the Grand Cross and Grand Officer have a golden star and the Commander the silver star?

    I would say Kolbe is wearing the breast star of the Grand Officer class.
    Firstly, the sash of the Grand Cross is missing. And we can see he is wearing his parade uniform because it's most likely a state visit to Portugal.
    Secondly, the english wiki (I know wikipedia is not always reliable) says: "Colonels, Brigadiers, Navy Captains and Rear Admirals: Grand Officer" which would fit with Kolbe's rank on the photo (Konteradmiral=Rear Admiral).
