    I guess the rounded corners should've given it away. I'm not entirely convinced about the 'young die' theory and die wear making the differences in the frame details. I'm sure there would be some re-working of the die as we can see on the cross above some cross hatching on some of the inner and outer corners.
    There would still be some evidence of this even on a worn die yet the beading pattern on an older and marked cross doesn't show it, in fact the beading pattern, especially on the outer corners looks very different.

    Best Regards,

    Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....

    Thanks Adrian, so a reworked die ? How often would a die be reworked in its lifetime ?
