  1. Very nice one Ben. Jim

    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
  4. 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.
  6. Chris has asked me to make a thread with all of my spanges, so this will be one long thread. I would appreciate it if everyone would wait until I have them all posted before making comments. The main purpose is to make a reference library. Jim
  7. 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
  9. Hi Tony, it is a Slavic name and probably from Czechoslovakia. Jim
  10. 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
  11. When it is too cold outside to do anything I decided to redo my collection. Now every spange has its own label, instead of mutiples over one label. I will work on the rest of the collection later. EKI spanges second model. Thanks for looking and thanks to all my fellow collectors who helped me put this collection together. 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.
  16. Appears to be a good Meybauer cross. See this link http://www.ek1-dna.de/7-paul-meybauer,-berlin.html
  17. I have no problem with the cross. Here is a picture of mine to compare against. Jim
  18. It is good, if you can always remove the cover from the swastika so we can see the center. Jim
  19. I have put together a .pdf file of all the EKI spanges that are not listed in The Iron Cross 1st Class book, pictures only. If you would like a copy please send me an email jdrabourn@yahoo.com and will send you a copy. Jim
  20. Just received this rare (hard to find) Juncker EKI spange, without veins on the inner feathers. It also has a nice L/12 stamped on the back. It is one of the rarest Junckers and the rarest EKI spange. Jim

    L/53 SB EK I 1939

    A hard to come by cross, nice find. Jim
  22. I sold two crosses to Alexander Povo, 115573, Russia, Moscow, Shipilovskaya st. 50, korpus 3, str.1. I did this before I seen Jamie Cross site were he warned against dealing with this person. Yesterday the same thing happened to me and fortunately the other four he wanted the credit card would not accept the charge. I believe he is using stolen cards to buy with and then the owner cancels the order later. So stay away from him. I am not done with him yet as I will contact some friends in Moscow and see if I can´t make his life a little more challenging. I will also file a claim with Paypal to get my money back. email address: hlee71037@gmail.com Name: Alexander Popov Jim
  23. I just received this spange document that was issued on 2 May 45 and signed by the last person awarded the Knights Cross Generalleutnant Joseph von Radowitz. Jim

    Spange document

    Made a mistake, the general was the last person to be awards Oak Leaves to his KC. Also, the unit was NSKK - Speer before it was merged with the Wehrmacht, he still maintained his NSKK rank.
