You only have in all our country 3 specialiced shops with this kind of items. Of course you can find some medals in antiquity shops or flea market, but don´t in large amount. We haven´t many people collecting these items, unfortunately.
I don´t know exactly why is so dificoult to find the spanish EK crosses. These crosses were made inmediately after the volunteers´ return in 1944-45 to replace the pieces lost in the front. The main part of the veterans didn´t buy this items, and didn´t be made in a very high number. As the quality was very low, officials and rich people preefer to order best pieces in a jewllery. A lot of crosses made in Spain came unworn to international market when the bussines of german III Reich militaria begin in other countrys.
And there is another point: the spanish familys don´t like selling the things which belonged to their ancestors.
So, these are the reasons why is not easy to find these crosses in Spain, I think.
The Spanish soldiers won 2 RK (one with oak leaves), 3 german crosses in gold, approximately 150 EK 1st class, and 4.200 EK 2nd class. It was a good number for a division because the men was in the front only for 1 or 1 and a half year. The crosses won by spanish soldiers in Waffen SS are not included in this number, because nobody know it.
