what is the MM on this cross. i'm having a little trouble reading it.
Sorry my bad, it says L15
looks like 18.
I think this is "The Austrian Fake L15 " "A" type iron core sorry not original.

I'm looking for EK II 1939: B.H.Mayer: A and B core,mm L/18 and schinkel type ,,,EK1 Round-3 with Deschler frame and Friedrich Sedlatzek pin and SB variant
I agree with nick, neither the cross nor case are original.
exactly what i was worried about. i thought it might be L15.
observe the bead overlap in the inner right lower corner etc.
among others, L15 is a mark found on floch fakes.
the catch is typical (punched from sheet metal) as are the sloppy marks around the base of both hinge and catch.
I don't like the look of the case either, can someone comfirm this is a fake case? not seen one before that I remember?
