    Remarkable the "hanging 3" in the year !

    I catched this IC at a flea market together with the wedding photo of the soldier, (an Lt), dated 6th of Oct. 1944.
    The wedding image was shot in a photo studio in Enns, a lttle town in Upper Austria, (in the yrs. 1938 till 1945: Gau "Oberdonau").

    Hi Reibert, in answer to your PM I thought I read somewhere that a hanging 3 on a Souval was a sign of a post war cross. I think I am maybe wrong though

    As far as I'm aware, the dipping three on a Souval EK1 is accepted as original wartime manufacture. A dipping three on a Souval EK2 is a sign of post war manufacture.
