  1. Non Combatant EK Portrait

    Time Left: 11 days and 13 hours

    • FOR SALE

    Wonderful, Large Non Combatant EK2 portrait with family. Just look at that Bavarian medal bar!!! The recipient is named on the reverse. $55 plus shipping Please send a PM if interested


  2. Very helpful. Thank you. I would guess that Kiel is a reference to where he received the EK, probably after the war.
  3. Thank you, Andreas. This is very helpful. I don't know much about Imperial Marine Infantry units... any idea where 2. Marine-Infanterie-Regiment would have been based out of or who they would have been subordinate to?
  4. Hi Guys - Is there any chance more information can be found about this officer? Someone posted a query on him on the WAF a while back and guys like Paul C were able to confirm that he was a POW in England after the war and that he, at one point, was with 2. Marine-Infanterie-Regiment. His private purchase EK1 is engraved and includes Kiel below his name. The fact that Kiel is included makes me wonder if he was actually on a ship when he earned his EK1 before he was transported to the infantry. Any info or any thoughts? Thanks, B

It includes its original box and is engraved on the reverse. Also included is Gast's WWI Victory Medal with Aisne-Marne, Muese Argonne and Defensive Sector clasps.This set is featured on the wonderful website, To Honor Our Fallen. http://www.tohonorourfallen.com/wwi.htmIt is a rare, early set from 1937.$365 plus shipping.

  10. Machine Gunner EK1

    Yes, how?!?!?!
  11. Definitely a fascinating award document and it's always amazing to see the way you guys can dissect and interpret such pieces when the details are so overlapping.
  12. My EK1 small collection

    A Godet and a Wagner & Son - if you are only going to have two these are the right choice!
  13. Rarest 1939 EK2 ?

    I'd guess a duplicate or replacement, especially due to the mounting. It really is a great one, especially that it is attributed to family. And, if it was 3rd of January 1939, it surely would be the rarest!
