    enni,
    You mix two things:

    The normal EK2's made by Otto Schickle, Pforzheim
    and
    The Schinkel type EK2

    The one you are talking about are a different form of the EK2
    and that is more expensive..

    Do a little search on the Schinkel type, and you will see what I'm talking about.

    I think this is what you mean, sorry I've pasted it straight from my website, as I sold one this week.....correct me if I'm wrong Thanks

    Eisernes Kreuz 2 Klasse 'Shinkelform' Cross

    This is the very scarce 'Shinkelform' type EK2 in stone mint condition, complete with original ribbon length.Possibly by the maker Deumer The Shinkelform cross is a rare variation of this class. These were made from the 1914 dies and thus have narrower features The term 'Schinkelform' gets its name from the original designer of the Iron Cross, whose general cross form remained pretty much unchanged through the 1914 issues. When the 1939 EK was introduced, Hitler wanted the cross enlarged slightly and the overall shape slightly bigger and bolder. Many of the original makers of the 1914 continued to use up older stocks or older dies for frames to make the new 1939 versions, which were smaller and finer than the typical 1939 crosses; more like the old 1870's and 1914's. LDO regulations eventually forced the licensed makers to switch to the broader frame. Therefore, the 1939 'Schinkelform' crosses are a somewhat rarer variation

    A nice example of an Otto Schickle EK2, not a Schinkel.

    You do see them from occasionally but they are, in my opinion, quite a rare maker to find. Even harder to find an L/15 marked example.
    Here are both of my Schickle EK2s, first an unmarked cross, second a marked one.....
