    I asked about the code thing awhile back too but no-one really knew what it signified (if anything).

    True, a quick web search has found the 621KB to be very common on EK1 and KVK1 award boxes. Oddly enough the 626KB that started this thread seems to be connected to LW Observer and pilot badges (according to the survey conducted over on the WAF over the last few years)

    626 kb ?? the first box is numbered 643 KB are you referring to that one and if yes , what can it mean that its a mismatch of parts old and new or that the producer of Luftwaffe Observer badges also made ek1 boxes ?

    here is one example for sale that i think is genuine and it has the same KB number .

    No idea about 643KB, this isn't a speciality of mine, you can refer to this thread codes in cases question - Page 3 - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums but even there the 643KB isn't mentioned, it might give you some useful information otherwise though.

    yes you are right it isn't mentioned but there is a 642 KB , witch belongs to a gold wound badge . there they tried to get to a understanding of what the KB series stand for , but from what i read there is no valid explanation for the meaning of "KB", and even if some of the ek1 boxes have the 621kb number it isn't a general feature . a thought popped in my mind what do 1957 ek1 boxes look like and can this 643 KB be one ,because from what i understand they were made from original remaining ww2 parts and pieces considering this is there a way in with one could identify a 57 box .

    Well usually the cases go for around 150 euro, so with some uncertainty over the inlay with your example I'd probably go as high as 100 euro. It depends on how much you like it really, obviously the cheaper you can get it the better. Good luck!
