    There is also another EK2 which had a hump, an unknown maker and a rare cross to find. I only know of probably 5 or 6 such examples. The hump on this one is only on one side of the frame although some examples have the hump on both sides.
    This is the "Odd Date" cross, right?
    I have one of those also. In fact, I had 2 examples, but I sold one of them and kept the best example.

    Yes, this is the 'Odd Date' cross. I had two also but sold the example pictured here and kept the frosty one.

    One will be coming here soon when I can commit the time to write it up and have decent pictures of each maker.
