  11. one can speculate so much about those kind off stuff I am just glad some off it is now confirmed to a maker a second thing came along thinking about it interestingly enough I ones where reading an artical about the impact off WW 1 on the jeweller world besides the economic problems ,,, amazingly telling about two highly regarded jewellers where drafted in to service and actually died during that period . but that book was more fore the throe jewellery artwork artist kind a jeweler. dont remember they're names ether ,but fore the trench art lead an interesting thing to know . as far as deutscher offiziers verein go's ,they to,, had difficulties as specialized craftsmen where drawn in to service . so ,yes ,,trench art is plausible enough , distinguishing What is made by who is the difficulty .
  12. well makes cence ,,surely soldiers where acoupied with a lot off other importand things in those trenches

  17. so much detailed info lost . I found evidence off ek collecting going back 130 years ,,,, but somehow the detailed info about producing these is lost . ek collectors failed to be interested in preserving the most important insider info part off collecting over 130 years . and INTERNET came to late all there is left is,,,,,, shallowly history with huge holes in it to have discussions about . only light in that is , sometimes old secondary period info allows us to make careful assumptions about how things done but,,,,, by far not enough to fill the smallest hole in history. and sure even this is disputable ,,,, as there are enough EK grabboids who don''t feel that way,as fore them there are no holes left and the world is perfect regards kay
  18. hy Crister ,,there are many assumptions,opinions, about that as well in this EK1 case the L12 mark is the tell tell tale as the LDO numbers started to appear 1941/1942 ( don't have the exact date ) the overall shape and design off these crosses can be found back on period photographs ,,,some off these are even dated . also advertisement off the medal makers have being found that show in some cases the particular crosses and dated in many cases as well and the period books that have being written about these crosses do show some leads to dating these crosses .. as fore the tools these could not be used endlessly. as far as my own research reveals until today the pressing form fore the frame wood last around 30/40 years before they had to be renewed the mother model fore the sanded caste core they could be used almost endlessly got some presented about that on my site Holland verzamelt.nl - 1870/1813 OBSERVATIONS but that is fore the 1840/1880 period . as fore the WW1 and WW2 tools it may be the same . but could be different as the industrial material choice wood be better and off better quality and it is quit possible that the so called maybauer schinkel (and others) crosses with swastika made with the same frame tools as the crosses produced at 1914/1924 . until LDO came (as the general believes go's ,, and the Moore straiter look and design was generalized ) hope this helps be aware there are many opinions about this to ... regards kay
  19. there you are,,,,,,,even a juncker frame . mistake from my side ,,(about the frame .) sorry fore that . kay
