    Default Manufacturing progression of EK's

    In a study with a learned friend and collector there are some interesting comparisons as the war progressed.

    Here are some photos taken by friend with his excellent camera! Much better than my IPhone !

    Important detail in the manufacturing progression of the Iron cross and the impact of material shortage on medal fabrication .
    I would say the W&L frosting went through stages as well . Very interesting combination association with cross size and frosting type or more colour .
    This line up speaks volumes look at these 3 W&L crosses for this .

    All crosses are on a flat surface lined up perfectly ... the 2 side by side comparison show the size differance quit well !

    The crosses get thicker and thicker . From late to early production .
    To save on material and make more ... the plachets got thinner and thinner !

    My light tan W&L is compared the thickness of my trifold Deschler .
    The Deschler as you can see is a bit thicker than the W&L . The dark tan possibly is as thick as the Deschler . If I recall correctly the R3 EK2 is as thick as the Deschler

    Frame sizes vary due to filing etc . . These sheets had to be ordered with a permit .... so I wonder if planchet thickness was regulated ?
