Nick has a goal to have one EK for every German soldier who was awarded one during the war. He has a loooong way to go
If thats the case we should buy a few before Nick finds out about them being for sale and clears the stock of ek's
I have a small EK collection, I am happy for now. I applaud Nick for sticking with what he loves. And sometimes he sells a few and is a gentleman salesman.
I agree keeping to one particular area is very hard when you see so many other beautiful pieces
Well, maybe I have got it wrong but was it not so that EKII was with the ribbon only 24h after awarding it? Later only a ribbon in the buttonhole marked that the EKII was awarded. So I belive it is quite OK to keep EKII and the ribbon separatly.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
I can agree with that, Adrian. I know I put an unissued ribbon through a loop and didnt care for it. Personal preference I suppose. We all like it how we like it.
