    Default 1939 EK2 spange question

    Hello All...

    These little birdies are not in my collecting area at all and I know very little about them.
    However, this one is on it's way to me and I would like to hear some opinions on it, be they good or bad.

    It's unmarked and missing three of its prongs. It looks good to me, but as I said, I'm pretty clueless on these.
    I already have a Deumer L/11 and this one doesn't match it.
    Is it a good one? and any ideas on the maker? (Just hope it's not Floch!)

    Thanks in advance for any help.
    Regards - Danny

    Hi Danny

    It looks like a Deumer to me

    Hi Danny,
    Nothing wrong with this piece other than the broken prongs, it's an original piece by Ziemer & Sohne, commonly known as the 'Big Eye'.
    Here's the one I used to own - also with broken prongs..........

    Thanks Adrian.

    Yes, that's the one alright.
    I was initially concerned about the softness of the detail on the swas, but yours looks exactly the same.
    Cheers for that!

    Nick -
    They are at first glance similar to Deumer, but when I compared it to my L/11, I knew it wasn't a match.

    Regards - Danny

    Here was discussed in this forum my Ziemer & Sohne:

    EK2 spange

    ...I was checking it also in WAF and it was proven as a good one there
