    The Brehmer looks fine to me. The price is a bit on the high side though, you can get them cheaper.

    It's always best to save the photos and upload them to your post, when the item gets sold, the link dies and we have a thread which is useless because we can't see what the discussion is about.
    It's an original Gustav Brehmer in reasonable condition. You can find these very minty with all the frosting intact.
    Regarding the other makers, there's not much to choose between them. The '93' would be the slightly more rare and the '76' the most common. For me, the best looking cross would be the '27' and if it was my money, that is the maker I would buy but there are other and nicer makers out there. Wachtler & Lange are always popular, easy to find, and look good but it is personal taste.
    Buy what you want, not what others want you to buy. Take a look at some of the examples posted here, I bet one maker will jump out at you and you will know you have to have one.

    Follow your heart and your eyes! Buy what attracts you Some of the minty, frosty EK's are irresistable !

    Don't worry you won't stop at one or two. You will be buying these left and right. It's an itch you can't scratch enough. Good luck.
