    As Justin has said it's impossible to make any judgement without photos of the document

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    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

    Follow the link to some Nordland promotion documents and compare the wording etc with yours.

    I don't like it , the stamp is unreadable and i can't make out what it says , the doc refers to 1 . SS Leibstandarte which looks like an Infanterie Kompanie but at signature which doiesn't seem to have any flow to it it refers to 1 SS Art Stand which is Artillierie !!

    If it was offered to me i'd walk away i'm afraid,

    regards

    Paul

    The promotion document was also an important piece of a soldiers life which it was usually done on a formal type of document even in the field not what appears to be a spare scrap of paper
