The Neck decoration could correspond to the "Kgl. Preuß. Hohenzollern-Kreuz d. Komture mit Schwertern am Ring".

Can anyone confirm if he was indeed awarded this?

Re: Konteradmiral z.V./SS-Brigadeführer Franz Claassen (1881-1945)

Thanks to some great information from Michael D. Miller I have new updates regarding Konteradmiral z.V./SS-Brigadeführer Franz Claassen viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2186105&hi ... n#p2186105

Firstly, he confirmed that Claassen was indeed awarded the Kriegsverdienstkreuz (1939) I. und II. Klasse ohne Schwerter.
So, moderators please delete the "(not confirmed)" brackets behind these 2 awards and also delete the last sentence on the post, "I am still waiting to confirm the KVK I ohne Schw. and KVK II ohne Schw...".

Secondly, you can add the following award dates:

(02. 08. 1941) for his Spange (1939) zum Eisernen Kreuz II. Klasse
(05. 10. 1941) for his Spange (1939) zum Eisernen Kreuz I. Klasse
(01. 03. 1938) for his SS-Ehrendegen
(30. 01. 1942) for his SS-Ehrenring

And lastly you can add the following awards:

-Dienstauszeichnung der NSDAP in Bronze (add this below the Ehrenzeichen der NSDAP)
-Ehrenwinkel für alte Kämpfer (1937) (add this below the above mentioned award)
