Mine is photocopy of an ink signature.

In thinking about it, yours is probably ok. Just von Brandis on a bad day. There's absolutely no reason to think that someone would bother to fake it. It's...

You might be right. But, I seriously doubt he had 50 or 60 EKII docs to sign. This was certainly common during the war. But, post-war, especially EK docs named to a specific Freikorps such as this...

So, the signature on the document, although there are some similarities is...

I'm not suggesting it was forged. I could be wrong. But, I think it was not uncommon for an assistant to sign on behalf of a commander.

If I get a chance, I'll post von Brandis' signature for...

Nice pieces. The Reichswehr/Reichsheer is an unappreciated area of collecting.

There are some similarities, But, it's not typical of von Brandis' signature. My guess is that a subordinate was tasked with signing his name on his behalf.

The cross is an original private purchase piece likely from the period 1945-1960.

I think it's 'Suban' because I think the first letter is an 'S' and 2nd letter is a 'u' as it's common in old German to write a short 'u' with a stroke over it and the "S' is written similar to this...

Hi Dragnet

Thanks for showing that. Now that I've seen the page, I am sure that the identification is wrong. I'm pretty sure those helmets are all Wehrregiment München.

Not Freikorps. Not sure what it is. Although it's a common skull design from the Weimar period. Could be anything from some other paramilitary group to a student society.

I'd like to see a scan of the photo reference from the book as I have my doubts that it's Einwohnerwehr Muenchen. I think it's likely the other Freikorp unit I mentioned, Wehrregiment Muenchen.
