    All good pieces ... as you might know, the KC with OLS is the earliest version out there.

    The DKiG and EK1 are early-mid production pieces.

      Thank you

      Is the KC a so called S&L-type B-frame 1. Pattern?

        Correct, 1st pattern "B" frame with undrilled loop eye, magnetic core.
        Big chance the OLS has a small "o" mark on the back ?
        Case and ribbon also look good to me.

          Case KC & DK

          Cannot find an O mark, maybe under the solder of the loop!
          Some pictures of the cases:

            Hello again Henk!!!
            You really do have a great set there!!!
            Earliest 1st pattern RK with the un-finished loop eye, great OLS, earliest type of case, with bevelled bottom edge....
            DK, with the slightly later (but not much) 2nd style pin and early hinge-less case with the pin holding the inner tray in place....
            And a fine EK1 from the same date as the DK!!!!!!!!!
            Wonderful!!!!
            -Nigel

                The OLS clearly has the cross guard flaw (left hand upper), present. Super cross
                Why is patience a virtue, why can't hurry the f*** up be a virtue.

                      Value and what some one is willing to pay for it are 2 different things.

                      Dealer price or collector to collector.

                      I would probably pay between 1000 to 1250 Euros for the set.

                      Dealer price probably around 1500 Euros if not more.

                        I think that's a bit steep going above 1K .... those are Schickle prices .

                        I'm more around 650-800 Euro for the set.

                        Grtz,

                          Just opinions but I still think more from what I see dealers charging.

                          If I saw this set listed at 650 I would buy it even though I have one just like it.

                            650-800 Euros for such a set is way too low in my opinion. That’s wishful thinking.
                            A dealer price around 1500 euros sounds much more realistic.

                            Regards,
