Imperial Eks

Article about: Excellent EKs you have there Chopperman. Can you tell me more info about this one?

    There are period examples of medal bars with
    the Ek2 mounted backwards. (most often seen on
    Bavarian bars ) Some say it was done out of some
    sort of protest or that some turned them backwards
    after the Kaiser abdicated his throne.

    This cross makes me wonder if it has something to
    do with that or if it's just a "Frankensteined" piece
    gone wrong.

    Unfortunately these were the only two pictures provided by the seller, neither was there any description of the cross. As far as I know the cross was not sold back then (I am ashamed that I let this opportunity to slip away - call it a rookie error) but I still hope it might appear one day again. I would definitely be glad to have it in my hands and be able to share more detailed pictures with you.

    I don't see any prices that really excite me at all. Everything seems to be retail or more.

    looking at this Hamburg cross, I can't tell if the ribbon ring is flattened or not. I had read that the non-flattened ones were of a newer manufacture.

    Here's mine. I took the picture to show how it should look flattened.

    I don't like the Ek1. It might be good but hard to
    say for sure. I most definitely would not spend that
    amount for it. The loose ek2s look good but the
    ribbons look like new replacement ribbons.

    I am not good with medal bars but I would be very
    very cautious. I would have someone who really
    knows "other states" ribbons check them out.

    As mention above --nothing really exciting.

    Which crazy guy is prepared to pay 129.99 for unmarked EK1 57 version? Or 56.99 for common 1914 EK2? Show me such person, please. I have a couple of great crosses for him...
