    Default Interesting EK 2nd awarded Posthumous? in very strange case

    Hi Guys,

    I keep finding these weird ones.
    I have never seen this type of case.
    I do not understand the case?
    Is it Posthumous ?

    Here is what it is EK 2nd class marked on ring 800 & CD or GD.
    Burgandy case marked:
    zur erinnerung an nieine Kriegszeit im res. inf. regt nr 74

    Best I can get out of this is:

    to the memory of nieine Wartime in
    res. inf. regt nr 74


    Masbe one of you can explain this one?
    THANKS

    Greetings Wblastoff,

    Case's style appears like many cigar/cigarette cases I have seen before. Note the similar shape/construction of the one below from this website
    Currently Available Area-- WWI German Kaiser Wilhelm Cigar Case Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Lance
