    Hi Jonas

    I know that Karl Hensler has not been attributed to any EK2 cross out there. But how can anyone be 100% sure that Karl Hensler did not make any EK2? There are EK2 out there like the "unknown 8" and "Lug variant" which has not yet been attributed to any maker? So who made these? I have seen EK2 packages from Karl Hensler, Assmann & Söhne, Franz Breuning, Eugen Schmidtdhäussler, Josef Feix & Söhne, Wilhelm Hammesfahr and Carl Forster & Graf.

    This is the cross from the MB Militaria update this afternoon correct?

    QUOTE:

    "An example of the Iron Cross 2nd Class 1939. The cross in a very good, very slightly worn condition. The core with nearly all of the black paint, the frames with patina.
    Not marked but a known variation that can be attributed to the company of Karl Hensler from Pforzheim.
    The fitting large blue envelope in a very good, slightly used condition. Printed on the obverse with the designation "Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse 1939" and on the reverse with the cross maker "Karl Hensler Pforzheim.".

    So what is the concensus as far as these crosses and packets are concerned at the moment, good or bad??

    Yes, it did came from this update. That is why I wanted to know more about the cross if it might be a variant that has not been attributed to any maker. The packet should be genuine since it (not this one) has been discussed on WAF.
