It would be great if a list of named 2nd Issue BO awards could be found, and a complete list of GPB awards from the files of Der Ehrenzeichenskommission in Munich!!

Best wishes, my friend,

The list of names is known for 2nd pattern BOs but we don't have the key that matches the names to the numbers on the medals.

Right, Erich...It would be great if such a record of names AND NUMBERS turned up! Right now, even though we can check for a name in Patzwall's referece work, we can never be certain of what BO NUMBER that person held.

While I have long recognized that the CB is one of "The Holy Trinity" of foundational NSDAP awards -- the CB, the BO and the GPB -- I have never owned a CB, primarily because of the cost but also because of the rarity of original pieces and the inability to connect a particular person with a particular badge.

I'm sure your badge will sell quickly and again, I wish you very well indeed.

Hi BR James,

Yes - I hope the badge will sell - I had lots of interest and some interesting offers, including a trade for some badges but I would prefer an outright sale (or maybe a two-part layaway). Big items like this rarely come up, so the interest has been good.
