    Default Ek2 mm 70

    Another cross from the same dealer in Germany. I am a little unsure on its authenticity, can you guys help me out?

    The cross is magnetic and appears to be three piece construction as you can slide the corner of a piece of paper underneath the frame, the ring is clearly marked 70 for Lind & Meyrer Oberstein a.d.N., the only thing that concerns me is that on the bottom edge of the cross one end is thicker than the other and I was told that if this happened the cross would be sent back and redone, but it might just be extra solder that is causing this.

    Can you show a close up of the maker mark as 70 is not an EK maker

    Could be an unclear '76' mm for Ernst L. Muller...

    I have been using the Ek2 list on Wehrmacht awards and 70 is on there. Do you have a correct Ek makers list I can work from?

    It is a sloppy 76 mark.

    70 is not an EK2 maker.

    So its 76 for Ernst L. Muller not 70, but my main concern is with the soldering at the bottom of the cross, how it gets thicker near one end. I though that was a bad sign.

    I wouldnt worry about the solder job, the maker probably wasnt wearing his glasses for this one, nice cross

    The '76' stamps are very often found missing part of the '6' and therefore commonly mistaken for a '70' mark. Maker '70' did not produce EK2s.

    There is a list here on the forum which is one of the pinned threads on the main Orders and Decorations page that I have compiled according to the known PKZ makers of EK2s. As far as I know this list is accurate and reflects those known makers that I have collected.
