    Always a joker in the group... Actually its a good way to start the day! All who have responded I am very thankful. I will get some photos uploaded later today so you can give me your opinion/s. It is very possible I may be misreading the markings. Again thank you and all of you have a safe 4th!

    Both (15 & 75) look similiar, but here it is the "15" - so manufactured by Friedrich Orth, Wien (Vienna). You can compare them here: [15] Friedrich Orth, Wien - EK1 DNA


    PS. MM "75" is also known for EK but on 2nd class only

    Note the little raised "dink" on the frame that indicates the place to drill the hole for the suspension point of EKII class that Orth were known to do from the same die tool.
