    EKII Spange document group

    Very nice Jim, congrats!!!
  2. Landed some very nice stuff over the past weeks.... Juncker 1st pattern ek2 clasp, near mint Minty 6. A nice R3 with stippled core and swas on a plateau. and a super-nice Petz & Lorenz ek2 in vgc, best I have seen in all my years of collecting.
  3. Thanks Jim, they are quite rare in BM...
  4. These are pretty rare, since most S&L ek1 clasps have a different model and different hardware. The major part is zinc, this type is in Buntmetall Rare original in vgc
  5. haven't found a number yet, but it won't be a very big part of the awarded crosses.
  6. No problem. Very good, that is one of about 5 I know of. They are very hard to find. I missed one about 15 years ago, it took me over 10 years to find another........

    Unknown German Soldier - photo

    Hi Peter, Erinnerung an den Weltkrieg..... World-War memory is about the translation IMO. At least he survived the war..... Thanks for showing, nice one !
  8. They are rare indeed. No, none of them came from Giel. I don't recall where I did get them, I think on a german forum or auction. There's also a Schinkel with this hardware, those are basically impossible to find.

    My tererium...

    Nice display indeed!
  10. You're welcome Alex! Regards, Ben
  11. Hi Alex, thank you! Yes, those are the cases I usually see them in. But it's also possible to find them in left-over ww1 stock cases. Regards, Ben
  12. I had 2 1914's but ended up selling them again. I had a total of 3 with this set-up, one was an upgrade so I sold 1. To the best of my knowledge these are the only 2 variatons around

    very rare Schinkels

    I have seen that one Chris. A nice example. ek2 versions is very rare, but the ek1 is really hard to find. I got luck and found these 2 about 2 years apart, when they were still "affordable" Toughest to find was this one though, missed one ages ago, took me 8 years to find one...
