Default Knight's Cross by Klein & Quenzer

Hi all,

it's been a long time singe i was showing something from my collection, so now i will start with a nice KC by Klein & Quenzer.

The receiptment was Ernst Süß, a fighter ace.
He was awarded the KC as Flugzeugführer 9. / Jagdgeschwader 52, on September 4th, 1942.

Ernst Süß was killed on 20th December 1943 while hanging in his parachute.
Maybe this is the reason why the KC is a bit deformed ???

With this KC also came a DKiG from Zimmermann and a Pilot badge.

For me, personal, a very nice (and tragical) piece of history.
