    Hi Roberto,
    I like the cross and ribbon. I like the case to but
    I really don't have much experience with cases.
    Hopefully someone else might be of more help with it.

    Have you tried spinning the ribbon ring to see if it
    is maker marked at all ?

    very nice EK, with mounted ribbon . There were no regulation cases per say, people had them made after the war with different inscriptions and colors. The wear and age look correct.

    Nice cross.
    Did you compared the size of this frame with EK 1939 ones? I guess it might be that this cross was made in IIIrd Reich era - those frames are couple of mm-s bigger!

    The maker we can see on the box is Austrian! Did Austria made WWI IC's as well?

    I like the individual components but I can't say if they started life together. I do agree with Bruno about the possibility that the EK may be a TR produced piece though.

    There is a severe frame misalignment as pointed out below and also quite a large die flaw as arrowed.
