    That is possible Sam , he could have received the award very late war and the official paperwork never issued so no appearance on official lists !!

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    That's an interesting point Paul, and one to bear in mind perhaps. Personally, I have stated that I wouldn't buy it. However, if you feel ok with the fact that it can't be proven, i.e. the recipient was Udo Panter, then go for it Sam. After all, it is a nice award in fine condition.

    The inscription puzzles me slightly, it might well be original, I don't know that for sure but if I had been awarded such a prestigious decoration I would at least have made sure my name was inscribed on the reverse properly, and made sure it was square to the decoration. Why do it in such a place and at such an angle? It's obviously more than just a quick scratch with the point of a bayonet so if you're going to the trouble of doing it, why not do it neatly and tidily?

    Good point. It also looks as though it has been cleaned in the center back to further inspect the inscription. I will let everyone know tomorrow what I get back! I have done a good bit of research over the weekend and like was already stated, there were allot of these unaccounted for towards the end of the war and on the eastern front.

    The mystery is over. They stated it was late issue Eastern front hence no paperwork. They stated they have handled many of these and the inscription Udo Panter is genuine. I was able to get it for $2500 so it was a good deal to me and it gives me something to research as well! Thanks for everyone's help and input. I love this forum!!!
