It is an original Schinkel so no worries there.
Can you get an image of the supposed makers mark?
It is highly unlikely to be a manufacturer stamp but I suspect a mark left by a tool such as a pair of pliers, possibly when the cross was assembled.
I have a Juncker cross and bizarrely, there are marks around the ring that could be interpreted as the word 'Juncker' but are just marks left over from the ring being grasped during assembly.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....

Will do Adrian, I do not have it in my possession as of yet. I wonder if it is a mark or a reflection from camera flash. Hope to see in person soon.
