    Looks good to me, and welcome to the forum.
    About 85-90 euros from a collector maybe about 110 from a dealer.

    Hello and welcome,

    There is no need for better photographs, this is a textbook Franz Petzl cross.
    Note the extra large suspension ring and distinctive broad spacing of the numbers on the stamp - both are well known features of these crosses.

    Maybe I have been out of the loop for a while but I would have thought these could be picked up slightly cheaper than John has stated, as they are not the hardest to find, but then again, I haven't purchased a 1939 EK2 in a long time.

    Regards - Danny

    I agree, a good original cross from Petzl. The only known maker who used such a distinctive stamp on their crosses. They must've had a very foolproof way of stamping them because I've yet to see a mis-stamped EK2 from them.

    Here's mine to compare:

    Nice example Andreas with a lovely clear stamp!

    John is correct with his evaluation
