      Vizeadmiral Werner Grassmann

      Foreign awards:

      - Belgium, Leopold-Order military Knightscross, awarded 19.10.1912 to Leutnant zur See Werner Grassmann, S.M.S VICTORIA LOUISE
      - Siam, Order of the White Elephant, Knightscross, awarded 10.8.1915 to Oberleutnant zur See Werner Grassmann, S.M.S. VICTORIA LOUISE

      Grassmann was the only Jewish admiral in the Kriegsmarine!

                    Well as far as i know they came directly from the family so most likely are the originals...

                      I read on this forum that the son of Rommel had his fathers uniforms and awards.
                      I guess he finally sold it...


                      by the way, are those the same awards he was wearing the day he died?

                        I can safely say they are all in museums and that his son did not sell any of them.

                        His medals I believe are in the Munich archives and many of his uniforms in the Panzer Museum.

                          Thanks to the knowledge and expertise of Rick Lundström, this medal bar was positively identified as belonging to Oberst Hermann von Oelhafen. I bought this medal bar in 2006, at which time I was told by the dealer that the medal bar had belonged to an Oberst. He said that he had the name written down at home, but the information never surfaced, so I figured the name would be forever lost to history. Fortunately, Rick remembered seeing this medal bar in 2002, when it was still paired with the Officer's named tunic and the rest of his decorations and ribbon bars. Once again, I am indebted to Rick.

                            This gem of a medal bar belongs to a friend of mine. Thanks once again to the researching genius of Rick Lundström, this bar was positively identified as having belonged to Major ausser Dienst Oskar Bergner. Super, super rare! One of only seven Bavarians to be awarded the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha Duke Carl Eduard Medal during WWI. And of the seven recipients, Bergner was the only one to have both the the Bavarian Military Merit Order with Swords and the Bavarian 24-Year Long Service Cross. It doesn't get much better than this!

                              Great stuff Tom!!

                              Here is my newest one, attributed to:

                              Gen.Maj. Heinrich Seywald

                              (Attributed as this is apparently a common enough combo, but the bar was sold to me with this name).

                                A real gem of a medal bar, Pierce. And in pristine condition too. Is that two, slightly different styles of Luftwaffe eagles on the long service ribbons? One looks to have a segmented swastika and the other not. I always like seeing the slight differences in the ribbon eagles.

                                Best regards,
                                Tom
