    I'm fairly sure you'll find most of them on here Tom, if you can't find a particular mark, just shout, someone will have one.
    Gordon Williamson has written a book on the 1939 EKs and Dietrich Maerz has written a book exclusively about EK1s with an follow up EK2 book due out very shortly.
    If you want a complete list of makers and a list of EK2 makers look at the sticky thread at the top of the page regarding PKZ/LDO makers.

    There are several unknowns, '75' is another. I'm not sure why some remain unknown but maybe over time and with dedicated collectors examining things with minute detail they will become known.

    I've always wondered why some numbers are missing. There's most likely a reason. But as a badge collector i've never really thought about it. Stewy

    Here are both Tom, bear in mind, the '38' is a bit iffy, the cross is original but as this is the only marked '38' anyone seems to have seen, it is best left with a question mark over it......
    The frame and core on the '75' are very distinctive and unique, easy to spot.
