    Hi,

    I haven't been able to find anything like this on the net. I have what I believe to be a Luftwaffe paratrooper Commendation for the winter campaign of 1941/42 on the Russian Front. Loosely translated reads:
    "A hero for Fuhrer, Folk and Realm suffered in Russia
    Corporal Helmut Kirsten
    in the Company "Winter Storm" Storm Regiment"

    It measures about 8" x 10 1/2". As the picture shows it terrific coloring with the Luftwaffe symbol in blue, with a yellow paratrooper eagle with the soldier's name in gold. Signed on the bottom by his commander.

    I have no intention of selling it but would like to know what value it has.

    TIA

    Bill
