    While I do not collect documents myself, I enjoy seeing
    some of them. It amazes me how some are just a typed
    sheet of plane paper and some are very artistic.

    Hi Chaps, here's my latest. It's my first boxed EK1. It's maker marked S-W for Sy-Wagner, Berlin. It's also got a crescent moon stamp under the pin, which I think is a silver mark. It's the classic S-W with the pin being slightly longer than the body of the cross. Greg, the box has a different design to yours on the top. Is it the right style for this maker?

    Cheers,

    Richard.

    Sweet cross Richard. Text book S-W style.
    As for the box. I think yours is very typical of later boxes.
    (mid to post war ) Earlier boxes tend to have a different push
    button. BUT you have to remember that Imperial boxes can
    come in many different sizes shapes and colors. Some boxes
    are maker marked in ink under the velvet tray.

    If the tray is not easily removed, don't force it. Makers marks
    in boxes do not increase the value of the box or the cross. It's
    not worth risking damage to the box just to satisfy curiosity.

    Chopperman, thanks for showing more super EK II's. Godet, AHH now your talking quality, its no wonder they were appointed court jewellers !....even the lowly 2nd class Iron Cross was finished to their high standard, here's mine, stamped to the suspension ring with the 'G' for Godet. Notice the crisp detailing, the sharpness of the date & crown, almost seamless on its construction !... infact flawless !......enjoy.
    Hi Chaps, I thought I'd post my latest EK2. As you can see it's a Godet on perhaps the smallest ribbon you'll ever see I'll have to get a frack bar to mount it. Oradour says it all really & I can only second his comments. The core is as perfect as it could be with no wear or paint loss. There's only one defect a slight knock to one of the points.

    Cheers,

    Richard.
