    A Souval product, with this pin-type considered post war by many collectors.

    As said in my previous post, the maker is Rudolf Souval. A legitimate wartime Hersteller of both EK classes. They were located in Austria, where they didn't have a swastika ban. Souval kept on producing EKs well into the 1980's and maybe even later, first as souvenirs to Allied soldiers and later to the collector's market.

    So how do you see the difference between a cross made pre May 1945 and immediately post May 1945? That's where the frustration starts......

    Btw, I should have said this pin-type in combination with the catch.

    Regards,
    Nick

    I'm a passionate EK1 collector with a manufacturer, I generally keep my hands off Souval pieces, then I'm on the safe side too, greetings

    I understand,too bad Souval kept making these after the war ,that has condemmed every original Souval out there ,for you and some others.
