    Both items look like good originals to me. The experts will be along to tell you the maker of the EK2. The KVK2 looks like a zinc award that has lost all its finish. Pretty common with these. They don't polish up too well. (Don't ask me how I know this )

    Awesome, much appreciated. The color flatness of the KVK2 is what had me second guessing but what you are saying makes sense. Thanks!

    I agree with Roger, both medals are original. As already mentioned, the KVK is a zinc award which has absobed the original finish, hence why it is in it's base metal state. This is a common occurence on zinc awards although I believe the quality of the zinc has a bearing on the absorption rate and outcome. Some zinc awards, particularly the kriegsabzeichen were coated with a thin layer on copper or brass or even coated in a primer before the final finish was applied. This helps prevent the loss of finish.
    The EK2 appears to have the 'standard' Steinhauer & Luck frame which was used by several manufacturers.

    As a gentle reminder to all members, it is recommended and requested that if you have multiple items to post, please start a new thread for each item. Obviously using the Eisernes Kreuz forum for those awards.
    Thank You.

    It's no problem at all but it makes life easier for searching in the future and very often mulitple item threads can get confusing and less flowing as different members comment on different things. Also sometimes items can get 'lost' within a thread and don't get the discussion they deserve. Every thread will get an answer here so therefore if every item is posted in it's own thread, every item will get a reply!

    KVK2 w/s is a very late war example IMO. But genuine none the less. Stewy

    They look quite attractive in that condition
