    Then it is mid to late production...the hinge block will determine......it is uncertain when St u L switched to non magnetic cores....sometime in the early to mid 1970's it is believed, but they switched to open hinge blocks in 1968.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Tom........on the Deutsche Kreuz in Gold it is a genuine one, but to date check on the hinge block as the EK I, and the "red ring",was early/mid enamaled, for late pieces painted, how to tell, painted rings ALWAYS bleed some where along their circumfrance.......
