    Heres another without a MM. I normally am not looking for unmarked crosses because you can accumulate so many but I have a hard time turning away once Ive held it. It has a very nice patina like you find on many Imperial crosses so I grabbed it. Any thoughts on a maker? EK2 No MMEK2 No MM

    Interesting, the '1813' is not level and the Hakenkreutz seems to have very thin arms. I look forward to seeing what the experts have to say.

    It looks like a standard Steinhauer & Luck to me.

    My thoughts exactly Adrian, with lovely dark patina

    Interesting cross and very nice. It seems to me an early Wiedmann, especially the back date remember me this manufacturer.
    I don't exclude that frame has a low portion of silver but it's just a thought, probably it 's another metal that give this nice patina.

    Interesting Fabri. I'll compare it to mine when I get home this evening.

    You guys are the best! The nice patina on the frame is what attracted me to this one. I think it has silver content as well. I really appreciate you guys taking the time to compare it with crosses in your collections as I dont have as many to compare with.

    Hats off to you Fabri! Good eye, I completely agree with you based upon the '3' in '1813' and also the small flaw on the second '1' in '1813'. A standard S&L frame used by this maker but not the core.

    Wild guys! Good detective work! So we have a S&L frame with a E. Ferdinand Wiedmann core!
