    Nothing wrong with that one, a textbook Klein (134) in a large case, probably a variation III type used by Klein and Zimmermann that should have a 6 segment hinge on the reverse.

    Here's mine.

    I have been waiting for you Ned. I could feel your presence when I hit the submit new thread button. Once again I must truly thank you for your opinion. My brother is thinking about grabbing this one, he will be happy to hear it is original.

    I also must add that you own a spectacular example.

    Thanks.

    The general school of thought on these minty looking Klein's is that they were 'liberated' by U.S. troops from Schloss Klessheim.

    Schloss Klessheim was a castle outside Salzburg, Austria,where the Nazi Medals Office moved their supply of high level awards from Berlin, in anticipation of the heavy fighting that was approaching the nation's capital city. Many of the highest awards Germany could bestow were discovered in a sealed loft in the castle around April/May 1945, and many veterans removed large quantities of these medals to take home. The 20 known DKiG's with diamonds came from there, as well as cased Juncker KC's, cased Oaks with Swords and diamonds, Grand Crosses, KC of the KvK's and many, many other rare and/or desirable awards and badges.

    The one you're looking at grades as mint I should say, the small black fibres covering the medal plate are merely from the case's flocked cushion the award sits on and are easily brushed off. Not a cheap purchase, and not particularly rare, but try finding one better.

    Regards, Ned.

    Have passed the info on to my brother. He sends a grateful thank you to you Ned.

    And as a token of appreciation I have tracked down a more recent avatar pic of you.

    Use it wisely my friend.
