I traded a WW2 US E tool for this. The condition ain't great but it's a start. It's marked 138, Julius Maurer Oberstein.

I can see the shiny stuff beneath the black around the edge, should I remove the grime and make it shiny? @DAK D

No. More damage has been done in the name of "cleaning" than any other cause. It's a nicely toned EKII. If it was in my collection I'd display it exactly as it is now.

Spot on  @Bill in VA +1

Not sure yet, might move on, sell things until I find what interets me.

Absolutely! Can't recall how many regrets I've heard or read about from collectors who dicked with/'cleaned-up' their mementos....clean a medal and you're merely erasing the history of it lying in a vet's drawer or languishing in a garage or in an attic/loft in a box.almost disrespectful and downright daft! History is history and irreplaceable.

Lovely Item...as completely original...no polishing, no scrubbing or solvol autosol  to polish it and ruining it by making it look good, very presentable and ORIGINAL as it should be....Great...!!!
