    I believe this is from a seller I've used in the past, for some reason his website won't open for me so I'm only guessing. How much is he asking? If it is the guy I'm thinking of I think he overprices his items so haven't bought from him for a while now.

    With regard to the EK Nick has pointed out, you could email Klaus and ask him for an uncensored photo, I'm sure he will oblige. Then you can see exactly what condition the swastika is in.
    The price for that EK2 mm 100 is 87 Euro while the one at Klaus Butschek is 100. So I haven't got a clue whether it's overpriced or not.
    I'm going to send him an email, like you said. I'll keep you guy's posted. I very much appreciate the help, cheers!

    Lakesidetrader has some decent ones as well. Also, I hate to even promote the site, but Wehr-Awards has a few good ones on e-stand right now. i just picked up my 1st Ek2 as well, a mm'109' for real cheap. bought it yesterday and am already looking into another! haha I think this is gonna be one of those "you cant have just one" type deals. Good luck

    I'd be interested to see this one, as far as I know no marked '109' has yet been found. Please post it when you have it in hand.

    87 seems reasonable, the example on Klaus' site looks like it has better frosting though.........

    Decisions decisions!

    Decisions will be made when I've seen the uncensored picture.
    If the better frosting outweighs the missing color, it'll be a hard choice

    Hi Mametz,
    Here is the list of makers I've managed to collect. To date and as far as I know this is the list of EK2s that can be identified to particular makers. Some are unmarked like Juncker and Paulmann & Crone. Others such as Otto Schickle aren't on the list as they didn't have a PKZ number, just an LDO mark - but the crosses are out there.
    There are also a few crosses to be found that can't be identified to a maker and also makers whose crosses can't be identified to them.

    1 - Deschler
    2 - Juncker (unmarked)
    3 - Deumer
    4 - Steinhauer & Luck
    5 - Herman Wernstein (?)
    6 - Fritz Zimmermann
    7 - Paul Meybauer
    11 - Grossman & Co
    13 - Gustav Brehmer
    14 - L. Chr. Lauer
    15 - Friedrich Orth
    16 - Alois Rettenmaier
    19 - E. Ferd Weidmann
    21 - Gebr. Godet & Co
    22 - Boerger & Co
    23 - Arbeitsgemeinschaft fur Heereshedarf darf In der Graveur-u. Ziseleurinnung
    24 - Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Hanauer Plaket-ten-hersteller
    25 - Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Graveur-Gold-und Silberschemiede-Innungen
    27 - Anton Schenkl
    38 - Unknown (?)
    40 - Berg & Nolte
    44 - Jakob Bengel
    52 - Gottlieb & Wagner
    55 - J. E. Hammer & Sohne
    56 - Robert Hauschild
    60 - Katz & Deyhle
    65 - Klein & Quenzer
    66 - Friedrich Keller
    75 - Unknown
    76 - Ernst L. Muller
    86 - Paulmann & Crone
    93 - Richard Simm & Sohne
    98 - Rudolf Souval
    100 - Wachtler & Lange
    106 - Bruder Schneider
    109 - Walter & Henlein (Unmarked but in correct packet for this maker)
    113 - Hermann Aurich
    120 - Franz Petzl
    122 - JJ. Stahl
    123 - Beck, Hassinger & Co.
    125 - Eugen Gauss
    128 - S. Jablonski
    132 - Franz Reischauer
    137 - J.H. Werner
    138 - Julius Maurer

    So, there we have 45 makers and therefore 45 crosses to collect to start with, then you can go into the Schinkels, Round Threes, Ubergrosse, and the unknown makers and variants.......

    Whats wrong with Wehrmacht-Awards? Seems like a good source of information, or it at least appears to be.

    Just received the picture from Klaus, the cross looks great!
    The 10% missing colour doesn't really bother me now.
    Probably going to order it soon.
