Thanks for the addition Martin. I believe Generaladmiral Otto Schniewind was also a recipient of this badge, with diamonds.

Schniewind was, according to him and few sources, the only recipient of the High Sea Fleet Badge with Diamonds. His example is display along his other awards at the Hamburg Maritime Museum, Germany.

Hi Martin: Don Frailey took that photo of Rogge's badge at Rogge's house in 1972.  There are several different views in the series Don took that day.
