    Hi Jaochim

    The cross is a nice example of a BH Mayer

    I am not good with cases but that one looks fine to me

    Both case and cross are good Joachim, a typical Mayer cross with reverse set up common to this maker. Mayer crosses were found in the famous 'Russian Hoard' although I doubt this one was amongst the EK1 found there judging by the condition. Hoard crosses are either in very good or mint condition.
    Here is my unmarked Mayer below for comparison and also my Mayer Minesweeper badge to show the same style pin, hinge and catch......
