    My contribution to this thread, a post war made blank cored Souval EK2 for Austrian veterans.

    Frames are animal glued...
    Nick,
    Do you know when these surfaced? Was this before or after 1957? Never seen a blank one.

    Nick, very interesting threes. It maybe my imagination, I believe it looks like to styles of threes on that one cross. The obverse with a more compressed loop (bottom section of three) and the reverse 3 with a more bulbous loop.
    Indeed! Also two different 9's, a strange 8 ....

    They were made several years before 1957, the early examples are animal glued while the late ones are soldered. For more information, see here.

    Adrian,
    Great mix of mounting styles and I must say I have never encountered a one piece cross. Thanks for sharing!

    There are a couple of different variations of one piece EK2s. Not easy to find original examples.
