    Go for the early to mid versions, Terry! Leave the open hinge blocks aside, except if you want a gap filler for the rare ones. Like Steve said; they were made for collectors and lack in overall quality. It doesn't mean all late pieces are ugly, Steve has some beautifull late examples in his collection and so is your HSF badge. I've seen much worse!Regards,Nick
    Terry...sound advice from Nick....
    Prost ! Steve.
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."

    Here's a composite image for illustration, showing the hingeblocks of two items in my collection.

    The cross on the left (an early EK1) has a "closed" (i.e. massive) hingeblock, whereas the one on the right (a KVK1 of later manufacture) has an "open" hingeblock:
