    Default Ww1 ek2 ??

    Hello Gents

    I was wondering if anybody could help me out a little with reference to an EK 2 question?..
    WW1 EK2 with a civilain ribbon...I take that the cross is the same as a military one??.I'm thinking of buying one. Just waiting for some photos of the Kreuz..I think/know the ribbon is repro but I was wondering if it is a crime to change the ribbon?? Thanks again I will post the pictures when I get them... Cheers Terry.

    Yes - nurses, stretcher bearers, any soldier or participant
    not involved in direct combat. The medals are identical
    except for the ribbon.........

    Terry...do not pay over the odds for this cross.....the ribbon appears to be repro as you stated in your first post, a WW1 EK II should be around 35-40 (with a combatants ribbon)....the non combatants ribbon approx 6.00 (UV Neg). Most Imperial EK's are mm. Remember...It is common for some people to add a non combatants ribbon to enhance value......
    Prost ! Steve.
