Default EK1 + EK2 case

This goes on 955 euro. I think is a fake.

Even if it is real the price is way to high.

Actually it looks legit to me, but I agree that the price is somewhat insane.

I think it's a generic inlay that could fit any pin, and by coincidence would accommodate a mousetrap also.

This is a private made commemorative box (nothing official), probably from the 1920s or early 1930s. Different types for EK1, EK2 or both together exist - I saw also for EK + a state decoration.

greetings

I think one of the very few good double cases seen German Ebay... 98.255% of them are bad... this one has the best chance I have seen of being good in quite a few years.....

This is actually the most common type and absolutely original double case for the iron cross. From time to time you come across them. Price is very high but i must say the condition is just beautiful.. one of the better ones i have seen.
