1870 EKII Weitze site help

Recommended Posts

I am getting ready to buy my first 1870 EKII, and have seen five on the Weitze site now, but I'm confused! Two with the 25 year oakleaves, both condition 2, but one is 550 euros and the other is 600 euros. If they are both condition 2 shoutldn't they be the same price? Sorry if I'm being simplistic here! There is another condition 2 for 475 euros, and yet another condition 2 for 600. Why would the 600 one be more than one with the oakleaves attachment for 550 or 600?

There is also a condition 2-3 for 375 euros. I don't understand why you would prefer to pay 600 for a condition 2 without oakleaves when you could get a 25 year clasp for the same price, or even for slightly less (550). All condition 2. I can understand the condition 2-3 for 375, as it is clearly marked as not in as good condition as the other four, but I am confused about the other four and their similar condtion but wildly differing prices, especially as two of them have the 25 year clasp.

Thanks in advance! I am getting ready to buy my first 1870 EKII, and have seen five on the Weitze site now, but I'm confused!

Thanks in advance, and sorry if you may have seen me ask this on another site, I am casting my learning web as wide as I can! smile.gif

Don't go for the "375€" piece-the frame is not complete closed.I bought it when it showed up at the Friday update a couple of weeks ago and returned it directly!
