    Why so few EK doc collectors?

    I have a few WW2 EK spange documents and a few are sets (one has 32 documents). Jim

    My tererium...

    Nice display Chris and I like the bits and pieces that you have included. Jim
  6. Dealers will only pay at the most 50 percent of the value. If you have the time and do not need the money sell them individually as you will get more for your money. A great site for selling is on Facebook "Military Collectibles for Sale/Trade". If they have been shown on military sites and members have said they are good post that link in your sale. Good Luck.

    very rare Schinkels

    One of the hardest crosses to find as there was so few manufactured. Nice find Ben.
  8. I would like to see clear pictures straight-on and not blurred. The reverse hardware is found on Meybauer zinc. The spange looks like a Mayer (head), but without good pictures hard to tell. Sorry I am late on this as I generally look at the Iron Cross forum. Jim

    2 x EKI, genuine?

    They both look good to me, but I am no expert on EKIs, but I use this site http://www.ek1-dna.de/eisernes-kreuz-1.-klasse---iron-cross-1st-class.html to help me determine if the EK might be authentic. Jim
  10. Hi Tony, it is a Slavic name and probably from Czechoslovakia. Jim
  11. A good close-up of the disc would help, but from what I can see it is not German. The word appears to be "Technicka" which make it either Russian or Slovic. Jim
  12. Fake as stated, before you buy look at the spange database and see if the spange is there, if not don't buy but take pictures and post. We are here to help provide expertise. Jim

    Strange "iron cross" - 1788 1913

    In order to get a definitive answer you will need to post individual pictures front and back close-up and straight on. I would like to see the combo set-up (spange and cross) along with the other two spanges. Jim
  14. Fake. First there is no Juncker spange stamped with their name, second the date box is wrong, last it is a one piece construction which is an immediate give away. Jim
  15. It is about right.
