ID:	369919. On the rear lightly enscribed is "K Werner, Feldwebel, Russland, 12.2.1943. I have never found a corresponding name and date in the list of DK recipients. Possibly, the date listed in reference material is that of the engagement the decoration was being awarded for and the date on the back is the actual date of award and receipt. The enscription is put in lightly with a punch and hammer. It is definitely period to the badge. I wonder who the recipient was.

    Nice Otto Klein cross that's the sort of 'one looker' piece that every collector dreams of Bob! The inscription is also one of those that instantly screams 'original' too. Much better than the false machine made dedications that abound on fakes and originals alike. Thank you for posting.

    The date on the DK is only 10 days after the surrender in Stalingrad. The owner must have had mixed feelings on this day.
