    Default A Deschler 57er EK II

    Ladies and Gents, my new addition a Deschler produced 57er EK II...a rather salty example (originally from a smoker, I suspect), that appears to have had the core (which is non magnetic) repainted at some time, Deschlers Iron Crosses were renowned for there paint loss....notice the design of the oakleaves device...different from most other manufacturers and the Deumer style hump on the point of the suspension ring attachment....I suppose it could be cleaned....but.....
    The firm Deschler und Sohn survived the war, despite their factory being utterly destroyed by Allied bombing...they went on to produce new awards for Bundeswehr/Government in the 60's & 70's...they were sadly bought out by Pichl AG in 1997..who promptly removed production to Austria and the Munich facility was closed down.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Very nice example Steve and rarely seen. Most likely made using frames left over from wartime production.
