    Hello, I am planning on purchasing this EK1 the price is up there but I think it’s about what you’d expect to pay. I need one for the collection and this one is in beautiful condition. It looks good to me but before spending a chuck of change like this, I’d like some more opinions.

    Hello, sorry I forgot to mention the price, it is on a bid ending in around seven days. Current asking is $300. Is that too much??

    Cheers

    Looks very similar to my own unmarked example, right down the case! For the sake of reference, mine is an unmarked Wilhelm Deumer.

    That price sounds about right for a cased award. That's about the equivalent of what I paid in Euros. As for authenticity, I'm afraid I can't be of help. It looks fine to me, but I only have the one example to compare to.

    Thank you very much! I was wondering about price because when I first looked at buying on a couple years ago the price wasn’t as much, it’s crazy how fast things go up in price. I also must say yours is in very good condition!

    Thanks,

    Unfortunately, that’s true in all areas of militaria collecting. Prices will continue to rise as long as the demand keeps up, which it will.

    It’s good to see more younger collectors on the forum as of late!

    Looks like a nice frosty Deumer.

    Compare the two swastikas, Bohdi's example looks much thinner

    Hello thanks for the reply, you say it looks like a Deumer, the seller says it’s by C.E. Junker? Are they wrong?

    PS these are the only photos I can get.

    Cheers

    Definitely not a Juncker. There is no cross-hatching on the inner corners of the beading and pin is not Juncker

    Hello thank you very much! I will not be calling it a Juncker, as I would of without your help. Sorry about the late reply just got home form school and work.

    Thanks,

    Hello, again the price is now $360, that’s right on my price range limit. Is this still a reasonable sum of money to pay for the EK1??
