EK I 1914, Award Cases
EK I award cases from 1914 -1918.
The first award case where in leather with gold-stamped, stylized EK on the lid, inside in white silk and violet velvet, from the production of Hofbuchbinder H. F. Schwartz, Berlin, who supplied the award case as GOK sole supplier until the end of 1916 in this high-quality version. The version next, around 1916-17 is IMO a sort of transition case, imitation leather and iron push button. After that, the black cases with the diamond motif appeared.
