    Thanks for the pics Nick.

    Is anyone else seeing a cross remarkably similar to a '24'?

    Similar frame Adrian, what about the date?

    Here is a nice clear shot of a 24's obverse to compare

    Hi,

    An addition to this thread. Today at Militaria Berlin there was a Eugen Schmidtdhäussler set for sale with an EK2 which to my eyes looks as a match to the one Ned posted before. Can this cross be attributed to any maker or is it an unknown one?
