    Love that example Adrian, the beading looks so sharp!

    Adrian, is this manufacturing error - the metal edge being bent or folded
    under - seen on many #16 Iron Crosses.........?

    Not to my knowledge Steve, It's just a one off mis-stamped frame seen occasionally from most makers to varying degrees. Note that Rettenmaier used S&L type frames so it may have come from that factory.

    Sorry guys, I had forgotten about this thread!

    There is an EKII listed in an upcoming auction and I am making an effort to figure these things out for myself. It's not that hard really, all one has to do is compare what's being sold to photos of known originals of that type. I often find myself just posting things for opinions without trying to figure it out myself. I am trying to change that.

    I have done a lot of comparison and I am confident that I have found a good '16'. I will update this thread if I win it!

    Thanks you for the photos gentlemen. How does a '16' rank on the rarity scale? There are a few other crosses in the auction and I like the '16', but I always try to go for what will be harder for me to find in the future.

    Just for the record, the other crosses include a salty Anton Schenkl '27', and a decent J. E. Hammer u. Sohne '55'.
