    Default Ritterkreuzträger Stecknadel

    Bought this small stickpin a couple of weeks ago. Measures 9mm x 9mm with initials OdR (Ordengemeinschaft der Ritterkreuzträger) belongs to veterans organization of Knight Cross holders. Organization formed in 1952 from surviving Knight Cross holders. Reverse is plain, not seen one before, thought members might like to view it.

    Yes i have one as i am a member , the OdR has four classes of membership , only the first two are awarded the OdR stickpin.

    The first group are Knights Cross winners themselves , the second is those who have been personnaly recommended by at least 2 Knights Cross Winners,

    regards

    Paul interesting post - you write there are four classes of membership, but you only mention the first two, could you post information on who the other two classes of membership were for?
    I have been able to find a organization members card belonging to Knights Cross Holder - Generalleutnant F.W. Neumann, unfortunately the picture is not the best. As a member could you post your members card, certainly blacking out all personal detail, I'm interested in the card format not the details. Here's the general's card

    The membership card is no longer in a format similar to the one you post but does contain pretty much the same info.

    The Four member sections are

    1 Ordenstraeger
    2 Ordentliche Mitglieder
    3 Foerdernde Mitglider
    4 Sonstige Foerdernde Mitglieder,

    cheers
