Default Need opinion on this Blood Order

This is the second one of these to come through my doors and I still know very little about them! I like the detail and the overall feel is good to me. what say you?

Thanks!

Gary, I recommend posting it in the Political Awards forum -- John Fish and Bob Hirtz are the go-to-guys for BOs.

Hello Gary,

this is a good one - a nice and fine catch.

It belonged to Hermann Koetzold from the Sturmabteilung Rossbach.

Congratulations!


Best Regards

Max, what's interesting is that Rossbach himself didn't receive a BO.

SS full Röhm inscription dagger with serial #76637 on the cross guard has survived as well. What a phenomenal reunion that would make.

Hermann Koetzold was my father. He died in action in 1944 and was buried in Serajewo. I am not interested in the medal or any monetary value it has but would like to know where this medal was these last 70 years and how it got into circulation. I live in Canada
