    Looks like a Deumer L/11 to me. No red flags that I can see.

    Looks honest enough to me too. I have one similar less the box around the makers number.

    The last pic doesn't show the same cross as in the other pics, just look at the catch and the finish.
    Your cross is an unmarked K&Q, if i'm not mistaken.

    Hello there,

    I can only agree, two different crosses start the forum thread, a salty unmarked "65" and a LDO marked Deumer.
