Hi Bake,

The seller claims this was Neitzel who was also a posthumous ELT. There was certainly some resemblance but the standard pic of him at his RKV did not have him with the Close Combat Clasp or the Ehrenblattspange. There was a second pic of him with a Close Combat Clasp but still no Ehrensblattspange.

However, this looked like summer in Russia and it certainly did not contradict the award date: 2.6.43. If so, then the awarding general could be the never seen before Alfred Theilmann, Kdr. of 122. ID during this very short span of time. Certainly did not look like Theilmann's predecessor Trowitz or successor Chill.

Cheers
Freiherr
