    Default EK2 Maker 122 + issue packet

    Back in the early 1980's I bought this EK2 - the maker is '122' on the suspension ring and I believe the ribbon is original.

    BUT, the packet has always troubled me ..... the SS in 'klasse' is different to ALL others I have seen ( even all the fakes )
    The material has the "smell" and the mottled look to it but I have never seen a packet without 'klaffe' ( you know what I mean )

    Anyone seen a packet like this? ( BTW, the paper has faded under the kreuz and left it's shadow ...... quite cool actually )

    Cheers, Dan

    Just had a look at the makers list - Hermann Wernstein WAS a maker but was #5, not #122 .... so the packet is NOT for this cross ...... bah!

    Thanks all - but are there any other suggestions or comments?
    I'm none the wiser and I thought our EK2 experts would know the answer. ..
