    Default L/15 Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse

    Hello,
    New here. Looking for some info. I have the above cross, L/15, was told it's rare, but can not find any info. I know it's a Schickle, but all I find is that when the crosses were first being made, old WWI stock was being used, which made them smaller, and are called Schickle. So was he the only one doing this??

    I have the Iron Times book, but it does not give a lot of info. From what I could find, Schickle was just an "L" code manufacture?? Are these crosses, 1st and 2nd, rarer than others?? I found a 2nd class that is said to be an unmarked Schickle and is priced much higher than other 2nd classes. Why is that??

    Thanks,
    Ron

    Schickle was issued an LDO (L/15) number and then it was taken away and Mayer (L/18) bought a lot of his stock. They are hard to find. There is another L15 (without the slash) and this one is considered post war. Jim
    My word is my honor and bond. Currently looking for an EKI second model screw back Juncker spange. Also, marked EKI screw back cases.

    You are confusing 'schinkel variants' with the maker Otto Schickle.

    Your cross was made by hersteller Otto Schickle and has their standard WW2 frame, which is way larger than the WW1 frames 'schinkel variants' used. A LDO marked Schickle is indeed a hard one to find, so congrats mate!
