    EK1 Screwback-for review

    I would like to get your opinion about originality this EK1 Screwback type.
    Cross is magnetic, multi-pieces construction, slightly convex.
    What puzzles me here is the missing of the stabilizing pin on the obverse and not typical disk.
    Thank you in advance for your comments

    Looks to me like a good Deumer ("L/11" or "3")

          IMO the cross a good early type Deumer sb type ,but the disc solution not the ordinary type

          I saw already such dick type ago ,but yet never on a Deumer type.
          The items not related ,because the box of course original ,but have on a LDO code ,and the crosses these pieces always unmarked
          Kind Regards

            Early Deumer which IMO should have the big clamshell disc.

            Very nice condition though

              Thank you very much for your comments and info !!!

              Attachment system of this cross is not as per book. There is no guarantee, that the present disc originally belonged to this piece. It could be the "standard" one or the clamshell type.

              I have another screwback type decoration with the "traditional' disk: War Merit Cross w/o Swords, marked L/14 ( by the way, another controversial item...). Below are the photos.

              My EK1 accepts both types of small discs: the present and the traditional one. Threads of the War Merit Cross and present EK's disk do not match. As consequence, I think, there is no guarantee that the big clamshell would fit to my EK. Only one way to know it, is to try to place the big shell on EK.

              Do we know, if only one bolt thread type was used by fabricators or each company, which manufactured the screwback decorations had its own?

                  THE early deumer with the clamshell disc has no anti-rotation pin.
                  Like this cross.
                  So it misses the clamshell disc.

                  This disc is some kind of replacement disc, I have seen these before on crosses of different makers.

                  Now the challenge is to find a disc that fits to the cross, a Deumer clamshell

                    Thanks a lot for the info about the threads. So in general, it is a challenge to find matching disk. We never know, if it matches the item, before we try to install it.
                    In case of this cross, missing pin rather indicates clamshell as the original hardware. One of the previous owners was lucky to find matching small disk.

                    Best regards,
                    Klaus

                      Thank you very much for the additional information.
                      Since good 10 years I have one lose clamshell. It matches very well the thread of the screw post. Diameter: 39.5-40.0 mm. But it does not mean that this is a Deumer disc. After I make photos, I will show it in the separate thread. I do not want to mix the topics.

                      Best regards,
                      Klaus

                        No, it's a generic replacement disc that can be found more often on different crosses.

                        It is not a Deumer disc.
                        And I think it's a wartime replacement.

                          Ideally, it would be good to find the matching Deumer clamshell. But, this is the life time project.

                          Best regards,
                          Klaus
