    Original cross but very poorly stamped makers mark, perhaps postwar applied. This number was not used by any maker of the EK.

    Could it be a double struck '25' ?

    We ask the same thing hiva Adrian, if possible double labeling in the ring, seeing his iron cross, I can say that the numbers are watched very closely resemble their own.
    Too bad I suck making photographs, I have to learn a lot from you two, but a lot.
    Also I've noticed that the numbers before "1939" and behind "1813" do not look to his example or I do not know.
