Default First medals arrived today, 2 EK2’s.

Picked these up from an established collector.

First one marked 55 JE Hammer&sohn

Second marked 25 from labor union in Hanau. Picked this one as my wife’s grandfather after the war worked for one of same companies who made this cross. He is a war vet who got wounded in Italy fighting partisans with the 26th pz. Div.

Welcome to the forum Aks. Thanks for showing your crosses.


I've been handling EK's for many years. After well over 500 come and gone
I still get excited when a new one comes in.
