    Evening, gents

    Could anybody pls explane me, what kind of WW1 EK2 this is?

    It is bigger than EK2s of WW1 era - reportedly the same size as EK2s from WW2.

    Any ideas why it is like this - bigger? And what about producer?

    Its an Imperial EK2 made in the Third Reich era and using Third Reich frames. It doesn't have the 'Schinkel' shape commonly seen with Imperial EKs.
    It's a very nice looking cross and ribbon.

    An excellent variant....with an Austrian style tri-fold ribbon, nice !
    Prost ! Steve.

    That's a nice cross.
    I believe that this one was made by AWS, "A. Werner & Sohne"
    They used a very distinctive style of crown and were know to have made crosses
    in the larger TR size.

    Great comparison.
    Now you need to get a Prinzen cross so you can show all three sizes.
