People interested in this topic shpould buy the book below, published in 2013. It shows all the photos of this thread. It also touches base on some other products of Deschler, like the Golden Party Badge, KVKs, GC, but only very briefly.

Very interesting

So what was the "treat for the eyes" the engravers had? The ivy? Green is supposed to be soothing to the eyes

I have never seen such a in-depth presentation of iron cross production. A superb thread.

Absolutely fascinating...I had always assumed that the core received its black finish before assembly. Thanks for taking the time and effort to put it all together here.

To round the thread off nicely, can anyone post minty examples of the Deschler EKs ?
