    Imperial: 'G', 'S'

    TR: '4', u/m '7', '13', u/m '60', '65', '93', '100', Moritz Hausch?

    57ers: all S&L made pieces, except for the tri-fold (K&Q).

    Hello there,

    Interesting idea for a thread. Collecting EK's is quite an interesting subject in my opinion. Several collectors actually collect by maker as truly some pieces are works of art. I started collecting them when I acquired one I had to have another....

    I personally don't collect by maker specifically, though it is nice to have an uncommon variant. I truly appreciate the visual appeal of an Iron Cross, it is simplistic in design and yet holds such a strong history. I am most interested in the heroism and honor that was behind the award, as it truly was a combat-awarded medal for valor. The mint ones that sat in a box for the duration of the war don't do it for me - I go for the patina and the wear and tear from seeing the battlefields of WWII.

    To each their own, and either way - once you have one you can't only have just one!

    A sample from my personal collection...

    Us and them - and after all were only ordinary men. Me, and you - God only knows its not what we would choose to do. Forward he cried from the rear, and the front rank died, and the general sat and the lines on the map moved from side to side.

    I was in high school , more then 20 years ago , when a class mate brought in a EK1 screw back ! I bought it off him for 5$ ! He started my collection and brought me several other badges Blockade runner , Tank and Infantry assault etc and I bought them all . And I still have the EK's and always will ! But I only have 5 or 6 but its enough for now , if I could find them for 5$ I'd have a hundred .
    Cheers Chris
