Hi Gordon

Excellent piece of information. Do you know what year this list is dated? Just asking because I'm curious if it is complete ie. if dated early to mid-war maybe more firms were later added?

Regards

Rich

Küst = Paul Küst, Berlin

Arbeitsgemeinschaft für das Eiserne Kreuz = Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Heeresbedarf in der Graveur - und Ziseleur-Innung Berlin

No other info I'm afraid.

Don't know when the list was from. I realised that there were others not on this list that made EKs but I was more interested in the new named makers that I hadn't encountered before.
I suspect its probably late war as most of the names not on it we know of are higher contract numbers.

All,

I have updated the list by including those being sold by Hanibal on the e-stand, those from George and those matched by Gordon.
This would be a great opportunity to complete this list. Does anyone else have (or know of ) a marked EKII that is not highlighted on this list?

Let's be pro-active folks!

Rich
