Post your favorite Imperial German item
Things have been rather quite on this forum lately. I thought I would start a thread to generate some interesting post. I am sure many of us that have been collecting for awhile have one very favorite Imperial German item, be it a medal, decoration, document group, uniform etc. So post your favorite Imperial German item that is in your collection.
To start things off mine is a EK1 and 2 in a combination case. The case is massive and measures 4.25x7.5x1.5 inches. The EK2 is marked FW and is in prime condition. The EK1 is a beautiful vaulted example and marked 800 GH. Both have a very heavy patina. The case has a recess for both crosses and the ribbon and each item fits excately in the recess. The underside of the lid has a heavy cotton backing and is really plush. The push button seems to be made of brass and heavy construction. I would love to know who made the case.
