    Default EK2 - Original, or no? Unmarked

    Hello all:

    I have this EK2 which I'm not sure about. The corners of the cross are kind of rounded, and there are file marks on the ends. Looks like the sections are separating as well. There is no makers mark. The ribbon looks like it came out of a buttonhole. Ideas, anyone?

    Weight 21g. 44.5mm across. Magnetic core.

    Thanks,

    Hello
    yes this cross type is a bit strange but original, unmarked 75 (by unknown manufacturer).

    I was comparing it with a '65' maker and it just didn't measure up

    No question with this one, '75's are very distinctive, especially the date.
    Here's another just to convince you......
