    Thanks for your kind comments Tom, Eugene had the tabs in his mouth because he wanted to prove to me that he still had the tabs in his possesion. I was afraid that he had sold them to someone else.

    I didn't think of this as battle damaged, as I do not disply it with my ground dug relics. According to the story this came from a Luftwaffe Pilot who had a very hard landing.
    Alan you have some very nice relic pieces , can you post some more photos of the Ritterkreuz , the rear and close up's etc.

    Do you know any more of the story regarding where it came from and how it was found ? It may be possible to work out whose it is ??????

    regards

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Thank you for your kind comments Paul. The man that I got it from did not have any more details other than it supposedly came from a pilot's crash. From the length of the ribbon he was very small or had a very thin neck.
    I'll take a few more pictures and post them for you.
