    Default E.K 2 unusual ribbon and who is the maker?

    Hello to anyone interested - I have an E.K 2. Klasse from WW1. It seems authentic, it is three-piece, has a magnetic core and has the right look and feel. It is stamped in the usual place with the initials 'LW' ... This I believe was a genuine maker of E.K 2, but as far as I can tell the exact name is unknown today.

    Apart from the mystery of the maker, it has a kind of end-clasp on the ribbon with a pin in it. I notice that the white stripes typically adorning the ribbon edges seem thinner than on standard E.K ribbons. I don't know, it just looks a little different and yet genuinely of the period.

    Can anybody out there tell me why this ribbon might be different or if there are others out there like it? also if anyone knows who 'LW' was I would be grateful, thanks.

    The cross is a nice original "early" cross. I say early because of the sandcast core.
    The makers mark appears to be "LW". That is a known mark but I am not sure
    if we know who "LW" was. Some say Luis Werner but I believe that is just a guess.

    The ribbon attachment is something that I have seen before. I believe this was done
    so that the guy could easily pin his EK to his civilian clothes. I think I have one similar
    somewhere.

    Here is a picture of an LW maker mark that I found on the web.

    Hope this helps,
    Greg
