It looks like an inofficial award given by the regiment. The breast star is a Garde star.

Gefreiter (private) Cohn served in the 3rd bataillon of the machine gun department of the 2nd Garde Reserve Regiment.

Does anyone know any information about this plaque? Any help is appreciated. Trying to find some lost German family heritage.

Many units had things like these... as the Iron Cross 2nd class had to be approved at Divisional level, and after a soldier had that there was a biiiiiiiiiiiig gap until the Iron Cross 1st class, units made awards of things a regimental commander approved... certificates, engraved watches, plaques... a nice piece indeed!

I like it, do you have access to the German forum SDA? If not I can post your question there, if you don't mind and give you the answers here in English, if that is okay for you. Just let me know.

Sure, that would be good, I'd like to know if anyone has anything similar.

Thank you all for the information - and you as well Chris! Super happy to find this piece.

    • 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.
