    Hi Mart

    EK2s from the TR were either number marked or were prefixed with L/..

    It could be a poorly stamped 100 mark

    Any chance of a pic?

    As Robert says, was it definitely a TR EK? First class or second class?

    it was supposed to be ek 1 sorry no pictures it was on a stall at a antique fair,,,, to be honest even with my limited knowledge and no spectacles with me i just some how knew to walk away, as i have some good reference books and not once is any type of ek 1 or 2 refered to having letters instead of the single letter and number system, but thanks once again for your replys, mart
