Okay - here are my two eK2s. Sorry it took so long - my camera s***s and I've been trying to get some shots like those I've seen elsewhere on here. I finally gave up and decided to try again later. There still not the best but at least you can see them! I need a better camera....
I do have some questions about these though:
#1 - why do the ribbons not have clasps, or such, like other awards for other countries? A lot I've seen look like these. How did they pin them on, or are mine missing a top pin?
#2 - the one with the dirtiest ribbon has what appears to be dirt in the crevices; should this be cleaned out or just left alone? I'd hate to think I was doing away with part of the Western Front!!!
#3 - this one goes along with #2... Should you ever clean the metal part or just leave it alone?
One last thing... I did try to get a picture of the maker's stamp, but no matter what I tried all of them came out fuzzy. Both are hard to read; one looks like the typical mark, but the other one looks funny. Even under a magnifying glass I had a hard time with them. One looks like it could be "DCO" or "BCO" or some such. The other - it looks like a bunch of hash marks in one spot, but in another spot looks like something that has been worn away.
Anyway, here are the pics.
