The Deschler Ones are old modern copies!

I hope you did not pay so much for them!

Hi Demir,

Sorry to say Deschlersohn EK1 is a repro. It appears mostly as 1870 fake, but rarely can be seen as 1914er (with the same crown and W style). Company Deschler & Sohn, Munich never marked its pieces with incorrect name Deschlersohn. They used "D" mark for Imperial pieces (they produced mostly Bavarian Militärverdienstkreuz) or (later) their PKZ (1) or LDO (L/10) code.

If you compare it with your original EK2s a and b, it is no match in quality, materials and construction. EK2 c is the same one piece fake as EK1.

Thanks for the remarks. I bought them when I was visiting Germany several years ago. I don't remember how much I paid but I think not so much. 

I also have these two magnetic EKIIs on ribbon bars.

The first set is with Ehrenkreuz des Weltkrieges 1914-18  (KM&F), Turkish Liyakat and Glory/Industry Medal

Regards

Demir

Ribbon bar with Magnetic EKII and Turkish War Medal ribbon with IRAK Campaign Clasp. The clasp is smaller in size than those seen.

I guess that this group might be a staff officer seconded for service in Germany and so a non combattants EKII as that is a Ehrenkreuz für Kriegsteilnehmer...
