    guys this is my latest ek2 i got a while ago it came from the same dealer where i nearly got a mm 333 cross so i would like to see if it is origional.

    also it is unmarked and im stuck on the maker, the frame looks uneven against the core like its been cut out by a blind man.

    Hard to tell because the photos are slightly blurred, what is the dark area in the area highlighted below? Are the frames mis-aligned?

    sorry about the quality adrian ive had to ask someone at home to take pics for me. yes looking at the pis it does look like the side of the cross but i will find out over the phone later for sure. i have to say i dont really like the cross it looks thrown together. could it be late war?

    also on the edges of the beading there are uneven parts where it looks cut out more so on the reverse could it have been a hang over day for the maker?

    Mis-stamped frames do occur from time to time and sometime you wonder how they escaped the factory, I have a grossly mis-stamped '16' where most of the beading is missing from one of the arms.
    I still think the above is an original though, just a hangover day as you suggest or a Friday afternoon piece.

    haha yes cheers adrian is there any way of telling a maker then or are some of the features lost to the frame? the core looks like a 65 maybe?

    The beading looks almost cast to me! No definition between the beads.

    I would leave it

    Not, a Klein & Quenzer. I'm thinking along the lines of a S&L 'standard' frame type but would like the better pics to be sure one way or another.
