    This KVK 2nd class with swords is from a grouping I bought to an SS mann,
    Fritz Limbacher of the "Deutschland" regiment, Das Reich and Schwere Panzer Abt. 502/ II SS Das Reich in 1945. He was killed in the battle at Halbe, near Märtens Muhle. He died with the rank of Obersturmführer. The interesting thing with this one is that the packet looks like it was going to be awarded to someone else. Then scribbled out and then Limbachers name penned in. This was awarded to him on 22nd August 1941, with the original award document "im Felde" hand signed by Paul Hausser.

    regards John

    Thank you for posting guys, good to see these crosses and the ribbonbars are great. I like the KVM buttonhole, you don't seem to find these very often.
