    IR 90 was part of 20 Infanterie Division until 1943, the doc appears to have the signature of Divisional commander General Hans ZORN although i cannot confirm the signature. I;m not sure why the doc has two signatures and i cannot read anything on the stamp apart from Feldpostnummer which is strange as it should have a Div stamp ?

    regards

    As Paul says part of the 20. Inf reg (mot) part of Army group North. I'm with you Paul 2nd sig. is odd,but not unheard of. The stamp phases me a bit too. Stewy S

    Hi Doomula,

    There's nothing wrong with that cross, except what looks like a bad re-paint. From what I can see in your pictures I would say it is a genuine wartime example. Jablonski crosses are frequently known to have distressed paint work, so maybe someone at some stage tried to 'tidy' it up.

    Regards - Danny

    Sorry, can't help you there, I have no experience with them at all, and very little with packets either.
