And this is a nice little Deumer in a Deumer marked packet (one of three variations I've found in makers name, and desigantion) with the faded type ribbon, often reffered to as 'older' is there any truth in that ?

And another Deumer zincer marked 4 came in this nice little box, it has no catch is very much like the late war boxes. A nice interesting logo on the lid though.

I have the feeling though this is not a latter war box as such.

Here is the cross, it's seen better days but the poor little mite has been untouched and left alone as it came from a vet group (Czech pilot group on WAF)

Marcus,

Where's the unlikely place then? Hopefully not of ill repute.

Hi Tony, (ynot ?)

It was in the backend of beyond, near France in a house of a German collector, it looked like Steptoes Yard crossed with a house in Bosnia, one of the nicest guys you could ever wish to meet though. I think he had running water and electric no other mod cons though....I could have spent hours in there.

He did house clearance for a living, and he had some very nice wares !

Hello Marcus,

Yes that me. That place sounds like it could be any house in France.

Dave,

I'm really pleased that you like the cross, now I can't wait till you get me a Military Cross in return. tongue.gif

Here's my only KVK, it's another family piece and I've only just realised it doesn't have a ribbon.

Hello mate !!!!,

Good to see you on here and Dave and all the other guys.....it seems a very pleasant forum. Have you found any more packets Tony........I just love the one you sent me biggrin.gif

Here's another odd KVK an L/53 with weird pin, it's a genuine set up and Frank from the WAF has another example with the same hinge and catch but a slightly different pin.

The KVK case has the silver blocked out cross to the lid and is 621.K.B marked so I'm afraid the 57 cross just couldn't live there anymore,a Steinhauer TR KVK is now in it!

Nice, very nice and by the looks nice clean cases !!!!

Here's my S&L.....I love the outer carton, it's a more later carton in so much as it has the makers name on it, before that they were more generic........then the Ldo stepped in upper most in 1943 and changed the rules as a whole.......every thing once used went to the Ldo boxes.

Tony,

I may own this mate, but how I got it, believe you me was no 'purchase' as such, it was in part and parcel of a refund......my collection before educated by the likes of you etc...was fake upon fake, I was ruddy clueless (still am if honest ssshhhh!)

Here is the Steinhauer cased mini RK set. One on buttonhole fitting with ribbon, and the other two in stickpin form along with a KVK1 with Swords.

Looked down on by some today, but even the lowly KVK2 was accorded a degree of respect at the time. Here the whole unit is paraded to see some of their number being awarded the KVK2 with Swords by the commanding officer.
