Ek2 75. Unkown maker?

Article about: by rube233 I found it in an RZM list. Also their LDO number was L/65. Look at Militaria Archive of Photographs, Photo Albums and postcards relating to WWI & WWII or Janssen-Militaria See

    or Janssen-Militaria

    Seems to be a great complete list.

    Thank you for those links Joe, I guess the ultimate question is does either of those who compiled the lists have proof this maker and number belong together? Where did their info come from? Was it taken from wartime records - if so where are they and why haven't they been discussed and this matter been put to rest years ago?
    I can't take lists such as those on the websites above at face value without knowing there is definite proof. We know maker '1' is Deschler because there is proof of it, I haven't seen or heard of any proof that number '75' is Franke & Co.
    I'm just trying to question the info and where it came from, not you Joe.

    I agree with your sentiments on this Adrian. The list I have compiled lists 75 as an "unknown" so when exactly did it become Franke & Co? Was it because someone looked at the hardware and decided that was who it was?

    I'm certainly not saying that it isn't, all i am saying is show concrete proof that it is.

    As another point of interest, I've seen on another forum a marked '75' that came with an envelope marked for Franz Breuning, reportedly coming from a vet.
    Can we take this as proof? Possibly - but we know how crosses and envelopes get mis-matched so possibly not!

    Hmmm... I have to see some kind of proof, before I will take this list seriously!

    Yeah, we need proof.

    Here is another "75" in better condition.

    Hello! I sent a question to Klaus Butschek in Germany. I have bought the Third Reich awards from him. One of the EK2, marked "75", is still available.
    .The answer was: "I am afraid I cant help you. There are a lot of discussions about this maker. ;-) enni.

    Anton,
    Can you take a close up shot of the area circled below please? I've seen this feature on '75' crosses before and still don't know exactly what it is. From the examples I've seen previously it seems to be a plug of a different material, can you confirm or describe it please?
