I found this date and information in the book "Tätikeitsbericht des Chefs des Heerespersonalamtes General der Infanterie Rudolf Schmundt":

19.09.1944, Wolfsschanze:
WH-ceremony
Generalleutnant von Tresckow (Ritterkreuz)

Notice from 17.10.1944:
"Der Führer ist durch die Gesamtkriegslage derartig belastet, dass er bis auf weiteres die Verleihungsberechtigung und Unterzeichnung der Ritterkreuzvorschläge an Feldmarschall Keitel, Chef OKW, abgegeben hat.
Die Aushändigung der hohen Tapferkeitsauszeichnungen, wie Eichenlaub und Goldene Nahkapfspange, hat der Führer dem Reichsführer SS übertragen." (Page 288)

Bake:

Artur Axmann was presented the German Order second class in the bunker on APRIL 26, 1945 not in February.

Konstantin Hierl was presented the German Order First class on February 24, 1945 as confirmed by Bormann's day book now in the hands of the Russian Archives.
