Default Juncker Lazy 2 RK opinions

Good afternoon gent,

This Lazy 2 RK was delivered to me today and would like your opinions please.
I am confident in the originality and love the condition. I am just looking to see what others with more knowledge think of it. Thanks for you comments.

Gus

Hello,
cross and suspension loop looks okay to me. Small scratches on the swaztika?

Regards Alex

Alex,

I will never claim to be good with a camera. Here are a few more.

Thanks for the comments so far. I am going to eventually display it on a bust in one of my cases, but I am waiting on a bust. For now I think it looks good here.

Maybe he found his first combat worn lazy 2 at an antique show 18 years ago where the dealer wanted $60.00 for it but got it for $50.00 with it's full ribbon....or maybe he bought it from the brother of a WWII vet the day he moved out of state and sold a large manila envelope chock full of early breast eagles, qualification patches, chevrons, and shoulder boards, but then didn't take the time to look through everything (except the initial glance prior to paying the $85.00 he wanted for everything) until later the next day when he dumped everything out to sort through it all only to have a combat worn K&Q Knight's Cross on a button hole sewn cornerned EKII ribbon unexpectedly fall from the very bottom of the envelope....? Who knows it might happen.

Not that lucky, I had to save up.

Falls right within the dimension and characteristics spelled out in Dietrich Maerz's book on pages 23-24.

Yes it was definitely blind luck. I did have to save up for my next two though and when I bought them I had to pay very good money for them just like most of us.
