It is interesting as it has the 57er version of the wwii spange attached. Worth showing in the 57er forum I think. It might be a postwar cross to go with the spange, but I don’t know enough to confirm.

The pin looks like a post-war S&L.

Really nice early Westwall and KVKIIX by the way.

It's a nice 1957 Steinhauer setup, with honest wear. These are not that common with the WHS mounted on top.

The Simm minesweeper also looks great. Great obverse finish.

I don't know if the producer of this EK cross is S&L, because after the war there were too many combinations with EK crosses parts (frame, core and set-up's), but IMO it is definitely a post-war cross.

The question on who and when this post war cross was produced has already been answered in the 1957 section of the forum, no need to further guessing...

Regards,
Alex
