Gille signed Iron Cross document to follow later today. I have to cut the grass.
Perhaps more close up photos might help to have any opinions offered, this one is certainly too dark with no real detail to it at all
No beter pic's??

Thanks for posting, Mark.
Good to see a dagger in this condition.
Especially one such as this.
Look forward to more Gille items.

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
