    Hi Greg, thanks for the info. I didn't realise it was a Zimmerman, Cheers.

    Hi Chaps, here's my 'closed 4' EK1. The blued core originally had paint as you can see the remains of some in the detail of the crown. The frame, back plate & pin seem to be made of nickle silver instead of silver. There are no maker marks,

    Cheers,

    Richard.
    Hi Chaps, looking closer at the EK1 the backing plate & pin are nickle silver; but the frame is brass? The core is magnetic as usual, Cheers, Richard.

    Just got back from the OVM collectors show and grabbed some things including a nice cross. It is not marked it only has the silver content mark so I assume it is 20s or 30s. Also this is probably a dumb question but what is the difference in the ribbon length? The ribbon bars I just got today in the mail. I figured I would see what the opinion was on them.

    That's a perfectly good 2nd class cross you have there. It could
    be from the 20's and 30's but it could also be war time. Being
    marked for silver content would make me think that it was more likely
    than not, a private purchase cross and not awarded but it could still
    be war time. BTW, the length of the ribbon has no meaning what so ever.

    Thank you chopperman I was thinking maybe the ribbon length meant it could be mounted differently on a medal bar

    Received 2 EKs in the post during the week and today I was bored so I decided to play some Iron Cross Jenga...

    It's been a slow collecting season for me. This is only my second
    purchase this year.

    Nothing special at all, a pair of Ek2. One Godet marked and one Wilm.
    I felt it was about time I contribute to my own thread.

    Sounds bad mate. I hope nothing serious is going on.

    Just a lack of funds. Had a couple home projects that took priority
    over collecting.
