There is no such Ek2 maker as 112, maybe 113? Hermann Aurich, Dresden.
The mark is '113' as Adam points out.
Worryingly the makers mark does not look like one I would associate with Aurich. The ring is also not soldered so could be a replacement.
I will also point out that the cross does not look like any '113' I would be happy to call original. In my opinion it is a fake one piece.

Agreed there were a batch of fake 113's made in the 80's I believe

Thanks to all! I am also of the opinion that is the copy - simply, when you have it in your hand - it's not good.
