Is this a Schinkel B 1.class or a converted 2.class? The back plate seems to be in silver. It's not fitted 100% accurate and seems to be thinner than normal and the pin...? It got this circle on the upper arm were the loop for the 2.class is fitted but I think I have seen this on other 1939 1.classe's. (I got one on a 1957).

Have not seen any reverse photos of a Shinkel B 1. class, so I would appreciate to see one.

I have just received this Schinkle A Type EK2. Not the prettiest in the world as a lot of the paint is missing from the front, (it looks to me like someone has removed it prior to trying to re-paint it or to remove rust). However, that aside, does this cross look good or bad ?

It measures 42.62mm x 43.07mm. It is of three piece construction, magnetic iron core and carries no maker marks. The ring eye on the top arm isn't attached to the frame on the rear, (whether it ever was I can't tell).

As usual any and all comments and observations welcomed.

Many thanks.

Nobody got any comments or opinions on this one ? I know it's not the prettiest of crosess, but I got it really dirt cheap. I'm ok that's it the genuine article, but having never handled or seen a Schinkel 'in the flesh' I would really appreciate some of the experts opinions.

Many thanks.

Thanks for that Joe. :beer: Why someone would want to remove the paint from the front like that defies logic to me. I like your suggestion, and if, make that when I get another one, which is intact I'll display them as you suggest.

    • 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.
