Actually, he was Hauptdienstleiter. So, push him up.

Eh, not so fast, guys. I was right, when I talked about his last rank as Hauptbefehlsleiter. Apparently, Bormann had a very good coat, for which Baur had carefully looked after.
So, here we have a chronology of Baur's ranks at a certain date, compiled by me using original documents.
1. Rank - Hauptdienstleiter, Date - February 6, 1942;
2. Rank - Hauptdienstleiter; Date - April 9, 1943;
3. Rank - Oberbefehlsleiter; Date - April 16, 1943;
4. Rank - Oberbefehlsleiter; Date - December 3, 1943;
5. Rank - Oberbefehlsleiter; Date - June 22, 1944;
6. Rank - Hauptbefehlsleiter; Date - August 21, 1944.
Anyway, the point is that it was possible to jump from two to three grades in the party hierarchy. For example, in September 1, 1942 the Oberdienstleiter Arno Schickedanz was presented to the award of rank Oberbefehlsleiter, but Oberbereichsleiter Walter Malletke and Oberbereichsleiter Dr. Georg Leibbrandt (which Mark mistakenly identified as Oberbefehlsleiter - so correct your list, Pitino) - of Oberdienstleiter. Of course, it doesn't mean that they actually received the reffered titles, but I'm working to obtain confirmation or refutation of any of their promotion.
-Great work on the Baur chronology!!! I will bump him up to the list of Hauptbefehlsleiter as soon as I come out with my new list. Also, are you saying that Malletke and Leibbrandt jumped from Oberbereichsleiter to Oberdienstleiter? If so when did this take place, because I have a positive transmission listing Walther Malletke as holding the rank of Oberebereichsleiter der NSDAP on (Janauary 8,1943).
