    Nice cross! I would pay between $80-$100...as it lacks the ribbon. I hope to see other opinions as well...
    cheers, Glenn

    L/12 EK2's are very hard to find! I would say around $320.

    I have been looking for one forever!!

    Good luck and keep us posted

    Ingrid is correct, just read that the L/12 was never stamped on the ring, always on the frame, seeing it on the big screen now and there is no cross hatching

    Ingrid is absolutely correct.

    This is a Deumer cross with a post war L/12 mark.

    Any Juncker crosses which bear the L/12 mark will always be marked on the reverse top edge of the frame, normally just to the right of the suspension ring. They were never marked on the ring and were never marked with the PKZ mark for Juncker which is '2'.

    All LDO marked crosses will be marked on the ring except for the Juncker as I described above and Wachtler & Lange whose 'L' number is 'L/55'. This company marked their LDO crosses on the reverse bottom edge of the frame. Their PKZ numbered crosses are marked on the ring.

    Bear in mind that the cross in the opening post is not worth the amount quoted, in fact it would be less IMO than a regular EK2 as it has been ruined by the addition of this incorrect maker mark.

    As a rough guide, the last LDO marked Juncker I was offered was being sold for 500. Not worth it to me at that price. I would perhaps pay half that amount but they do command a high price.
