Hi Demir,

Sorry to say Deschlersohn EK1 is a repro. It appears mostly as 1870 fake, but rarely can be seen as 1914er (with the same crown and W style). Company Deschler & Sohn, Munich never marked its pieces with incorrect name Deschlersohn. They used "D" mark for Imperial pieces (they produced mostly Bavarian Militärverdienstkreuz) or (later) their PKZ (1) or LDO (L/10) code.

If you compare it with your original EK2s a and b, it is no match in quality, materials and construction. EK2 c is the same one piece fake as EK1.

Thanks for the remarks. I bought them when I was visiting Germany several years ago. I don't remember how much I paid but I think not so much. 

I also have these two magnetic EKIIs on ribbon bars.

The first set is with Ehrenkreuz des Weltkrieges 1914-18  (KM&F), Turkish Liyakat and Glory/Industry Medal

Regards

Demir

I guess that this group might be a staff officer seconded for service in Germany and so a non combattants EKII as that is a Ehrenkreuz für Kriegsteilnehmer...

    • 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.
