Some of you will already have seen this EK1 marked GODET-BERLIN, but for those who haven't, take a gander at the quality of their workmanship.

Why is it that some of the rarest things I own are made of cheap 'synthetic leather'... wink.gif

I've returned to this thread several times now. I can only say that this EK makes all other EKs look like crap. Talk about Shock and Awe!!!.

I am beginning to harbor a fantasy that this is not the only one out there...that somewhere, someplace, sometime another will emerge...It keeps me in the hunt! wink.gif

Bob... et al

The EK's marked GODET-BERLIN with hooks can still be found - the fitted out Godet marked case is a whole different story.

Best of luck in your hunt - and thanks for all your comments.

Dumb question, but when a individual won the IC, how did they get something of this quality? Were some awards Godet and some other companies? Or was worksmanship of this quality strictly a private purchase piece...while the awarded cross would be cheaper?
