    That is a rare signed photograph, both war-time and post-war signed examples are extremely rare indeed!

    In 15 years of collecting signed Ritterkreuztrager photographs, that is the first example of Christopherson I have seen.

    Thank you very much indeed for posting.

    Regards Richard.

    Thank you for posting the reverse side of the photograph.

    I know of several RKT signature collectors who would welcome this piece into their collections! (myself included!)

    Regards Richard.
