    Default 1957 EK2 - Steinhauer & Luck marked.

    This is my newest arrival, a 1957 EK2 marked '4' for Steinhauer & Luck. I've been after a marked '57er for a long time so I can cross (no pun intended) another off my list.
    This one came with a 25mm width ribbon sewn to be worn as a Ritterkreuz. I obviously don't know if this is how it was worn, the estate it came from wasn't a listed RK winner and even if he was entitled to one, why not get a '57 RK?
    The price was not inflated to reflect the RK setup so as far as I'm concerned I bought it as and it is just a regular EK2.
    Apologies for the pics, not the best light here today.

    When are you getting a 57er EKI?

    Adrian,
    Wow! Minty and marked!
    that is a very fine addition to your collection, congratulations.

    I've been after an early 57 EK2 for ages (not even a marked one) and I cannot seem to find one. There was one on the WAF estand recently, but the price seemed excessive (to me). 5 or 6 years ago they seemed to be everywhere.
    Can you recommend any site where I might find one?

    Regards - Danny

    Adrian...nice mm EK II ! looks like 57er EK II's were also worn as RK's, as in the TR period....also by using a 2nd class ribbon, as on my TR version !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Cheers Danny, I happened across this one purely by chance but will keep my eyes open for one for you.

    Thank you Steve, it's the first time I've come across a '57 EK2 set up to be worn as a RK but I'm guessing the supply of regular '57 RKs wasn't as prohibative as TR examples so I'm sceptical that this was worn as such - but there is no way of knowing of course......
