    Of all of my first class crosses, this is my favorite. It's not the
    most valuable but the quality of the constuction is first rate.
    Pictures just do not do it justice. In hand, it's easy to see
    why Godet was the court jeweler.



    1914 Godet with "fangs"--this is an unmarked example.

    This is another of the must haves for anyone collecting Imperial
    Ek varients. This is a cross made by Meybauer and has the
    cruciform style backplate.

    This one is sometimes (mistakenly) referd to as a Flyers cross.
    The backplate is drilled so that it could be sewn directly to the
    tunic or jacket eliminateing the chance of the pin becomeing
    unhooked and the loss of the cross. While it is a good story,
    there is no proof that this style was prefered by pilots.

    Hi Greg, You've got some great crosses there. A 'fangs' was for sale on ebay for 550 recently; but didn't sell. I wonder what the true 'going rate' is for one? Cheers, Richard.

    That is a bit on the high side but I have seen them go for
    350-400

    Here is one you wont see too often ---or hardly ever.

    1914 Ek1 made by AWS (A. Werner & Sohne, Berlin)
    It has some bad paint loss but holds some nice surprises.

    Flip it over and you find it is a pillowback cross, double screwpost
    with cruciform back plate. In five years of posting on four
    different forums, This is the only one we have ever seen.

    This is one of the more unique varients. Their unusual mounting
    system and their rareity make them highly sought after and they
    bring a premium when they are found.
