Imperial EK1, 39-45 manufacture

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have a question which may or may not be answerable but I'll ask it anyway just in case I'm wrong!

I have owned an imperial EK1 for many years, its condition is as close to mint as is possible (To me anyway), it appears not to have been worn,  the reverse hardware clearly indicates that it's of at least 1939-45 manufacture, as it happens, its by Steinhaur & Luck,

The question, due to its condition, it may well have spent some of its time in a presentation case, does anyone have any knowledge or examples of WW2 made imperial ek's in cases, and if so, would the cases come as a standard WW2 EK style box, or a WW2 version of an imperial EK1 box, just to differentiate the two, (Different style of stencil on the top of the box etc).

 

As I said, maybe not a question that can be answered, but fingers crossed.

 

regards

I recently got a mint Mayer ind the square push-button case.
The cased examples I have seen so far were in the ek box with the thin ek on the lid.


Here's an unworn Deumer I recently bought, mint, but a but rust developing under the paint.

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
