Imperial EK1 rarity stats!

Recommended Posts

In light of public interest and a new book that is "in the works", I've decided that it's time to include Imperial EKs to the stats department in more detail. The main focus of this thread are the 1914EK1s, allthough you are more than welcome to add 1870s pieces too. 1813EKs aren't included for the simply reason that they did not have any makermarks (at least at the time of awarding) nor did they have makers that are known today and that could be traced to a manufacturer.

So once again, I'm asking for your support and endurance. Oh and there is just one other thing, there is a similar stats thread going on in WAF, so try not make any double posts. So you're going to have to make a choise and stick with it as I've made. I'll post my EK1s here and EK2s there.

Thank you in advance.

Remember that all EKs are magnetic pinpacks by default.

Here is my one and only tribute to this thread:

"WS"

1 cased

Hi Antti-do you want to count only the EKs with a maker mark or also the ones with just a silver contest stamp? I ask because there are some variations you will find only with a silver content stamp-for example the one stamped"Silber..or just "938".....a very filigran EK with a blued core-my absolute favourite of the 1914 EKs. And your WS-it's the one with the maker mark stamped in a little box or the other one with the slim pin? Totally different ones in my eyes.......

Regards

Micha

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
