Hello everyone

I recently bought a poster of August Von Mackensen and I would like to know which decorations are in the picture. https://www.google.com/search?q=august+von+mackensen&client=ms-android-motorola-rev2&prmd=isvn&sxsrf=ALeKk01-K6iGhPLIh3DkRxlDVlXsxdnFbw:1586810825592&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjL59b8ouboAhXD2qQKHST7AU0Q_AUoAXoECBMQAQ#imgrc=hx4S_9irK0tnAM  I know most of them, but there's one I didn't know he had or I don't know what it is. I think that these are the ones he is wearing ( from top to bottom) 

Pour le mérite ( with oak leaves)

Grand iron cross (beneath pour le mérite)

Iron cross 1870 (with oak leaves ?)

Grand star of the order of the black eagle

And the last one I don't know. Its an iron cross of some sort but I'm not aware that he has any more. Could someone tell me what it is or provide a list of his decorations? I appreciate the help!
