    Default Scarce EK1 '24'

    Finally added this cross thought to be made by Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Hanauer Plakettenhersteller, maker 24.

    From the Marz/Stimson book 'The Iron Cross First class' I quote ..

    "The clues to it being made by AdHP is the fact the obverses of these crosses and those of the EK2 made by '24' are identical, even including the wide frame which is the most notable characteristic of EK2's made by '24'

    Another hint linking the crosses with this maker is a recent example appeared on a dealers site matched with a case and a cardboard outer carton which bore the name of 'Juwelier Robert Koch, Frankfurt Am Maine' which is a town near Hanau."

    Hope you like it guys, its the 30th EK1 in my collection

    i took it that was a stray solder globule or some such thing occurring as it was made and slipping through quality control. to my eyes it has been there since the cross was made.
