  1. I am hoping that some knowledgeable members here will offer an opinion on this cross which has been in my collection for over 35 years. It was purchased from a reputable dealer who had an outlet in Brighton Lanes back in the early-'80s. It was a tad over-priced being inscribed for a pilot of Jagdstaffel Boelcke but the significance of the recipient was in no way reflected in the asking price so I snapped it up. So far so good but a few years later, an illustration of another EKI bearing a similar inscription appeared on p140 of V.E. Bowen's Prussian and German Iron Cross (1986). This vaulted cross is held by the IWM in London along with its Godet case. I have long since theorised over what I may have here but would truly appreciate more knowledgeable and objective opinions. Thanks.
  2. Guys, Bit of scrap iron again. Can't make out the maker! Home made bar?
  3. This was a little more than I usually am willing to pay but, the condition made it worth it.
  4. here's a very fine cross that i am on the fence about. while the core does not have the traits of the established type, the cross has an attribute associated with hansen, and found only on certain hansen crosses. the screw post is very finely done, with a flat finished end. it's done so that the end will fit the disc flush. overall this FLAT cross is finished very well--the corners are all hand finished, some nice higher-content silver frames (unmarked) that have a beautiful rainbow tarnish, and a decent core the fact that the inside of the disc has the same panoply of colors in the tarnish-- many hues of yellow, green, brown, purpley blue, and black, as the tarnish on the back of the cross--is a very good sign for me any ideas? either way you look at it--- it's a very, very nice cross!
  5. Hi Guys, Just arrived this is a piece to me. What do you think about the box?
  6. A 1914 EK Stickpin - Its nice enameled. How ommon are those enameled ones?
  7. Found this Photo in a Train Set from ww1 and after. Interesting addition - sword on a single mount Ek ribbon. Probably a new "fashion" Anyone has something else to show?choose files... Click to choose files Stefan
  8. here's an uncleaned example that appears to have a moon, crown, 800 stamp on the ring. which maker are are these attributed to? i forget!
  9. Hi, I would like to share my 2 piece EKI (Deschlersohn) and 3 piece EKII collection (2 of them are magnetic) and would like to receive your opinios please. Thanks. Demir EKI (Deschlersohn) 1870 EKII 1914 Magnetic (a)
  10. Hi Gents, I wan´t to share this very nice document with you. Unfortunately or not it´s glued into his Militärpaß Comments welcome Kind regards Andreas
  11. Had a bit of a porcilane day today, bit worn but still ok for its age.
  12. hello, i am a brazilian collector and i need help. This ww1 iron cross is real or fake?
  13. This cross has a barely legible W? Could be a K or H.... any ideas? Thanks Chris
  14. Hi, Sorry, Typo in the title... I meant Wagner... I am not really big on EK2 variations... this liiks to be W&S ? I cannot remember having had one stamped like that before...
  15. After doing a search, I see that Wagner crosses get all the attention here over Sy-Wagner crosses. So, I thought I'd start a new thread... These scans are the first with my new Epson; so, I'm still experimenting to get the best scans. This one has a "7" on the reverse of the pin near the hinge. Google search yields little about the number other than it's a common quality control mark. That same Google search turned up a number "9" but not much else. Also, not much out there about the Sy-Wagner firm itself other than being in Berlin.
  16. any ideas on this type of core? the one feature of this 800-marked cross that i particularly like is the presence of score marks on the nuts so that the maker could accurately drill holes! never noticed them on any of my other double posts
  17. Hi, this came in a KO packet, but seems to be marked W(K?) or (?)M ... Any ideas?
  18. If I remember correctly, K.A.G. is considered as unknown maker of Iron crosses. Browsing the web I found some references, that crosses marked K.A.G. were produced by company Franz Kühmayer A.G. in Poszony (today Bratislava, Slovakia). They were ordered by Königliche Eisenbahn Zentralamt and started being delivered since April 1917. I am posting the link to one of the sources in German. Author of the post with this info (Thorsten) is claiming he will show the evidence in his book "Eisernes Kreuz 1. class version 1914". Post is from 2012, so the book should be out now, Does anybody know this book? http://feldgrau.pytalhost.com/vbulletin/archive/index.php/t-28885.html
  19. Guys, Did not know where to post this so here he is. Shame that there is a bit of damage in his hair (woodworm). I guess he was in a frame at some point it is A4 size. Signed and dated but no name of the subject. Jock
  20. Guys, From the weekend, not a fancy unit but I liked the design of the document. Jock
  21. I have popsted this a few years ago, but found the photo againand it fascinates me... I have a few old EK2s missing the ring and loop.... but this is not a collection of rings that just happened to fall off..... someone removed them... and sold this on ebay.... - Was this the guy who seems to use EK2s to make frankenstein EK1 ? - Have these subsequently been bought to repair old EK2s, now resulting in EK2s from one maker with stamped rings from another... thereby giving us "variations" that we have never seen before?
  22. Hi Guys - I have recently come across and EK1 from the Brussilow Offensive. Specifically, it has the following engraving on the reverse... Bohuszowka Kol. Nowy Mozor am Stochod Juni 1916 It seems quite clear that this cross was partially earned for the fighting on and around the Stochod in June 1916 given the engraving. It also appears that Bohuszowka is a small town in the vicinity of Luck so this fits in as well. The confusing thing is the Nowy Mozor reference. From what I can see, this appears to be Polish - the words for New Cemetery. The Kol. likely stands for Kolonia and, perhaps, this is a reference to a small, regional cemetery in that it is even smaller than the smallest village. While I'll never know who owned/earned this Iron Cross, I wonder if it could have been a member of the Polish Legion fighting in the area. The Nowy Mozor makes me think that its a Polish reference that could be referred as something slightly different in Russian (or German). I asked a Polish friend about it and he said it's tough to determine given the area; the northwest part of the Ukraine, just below the Belorussian border, and not far from Poland. It's an area that varied over the centuries in terms of rule, and the influences of the various people in the region overlapped. It's quite possible that a Polish name/reference could be shared by others. So, does anyone have any thoughts? At this point, we can surely say its Brussilow related, and for the fighting in June when the Russians were taking heavy casualties from the Germans (and possibly Poles?) in the area.
  23. i thought these were fakes http://www.ebay.com/itm/GERMAN-IMPERIAL-IRON-CROSS-FIRST-CLASS-MAKER-MARKED-KAG-GERMANY-WWI-WW1-MEDAL-/131430906001?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2047675.l2557&nma=true&si=aU1sJXFqbRXWHKbEfYZShXYRxjU%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc was i wrong?
  24. hi all, here's a spiffy cross...with multiple proof marks. inside of pin. it's a 2 that matches the 2 stamped on the left arm of the cross
