    Default Ekii-- maker??

    Hey guys,
    Just picked up another EK2, this one is Unmarked and was pretty cheap. pics probly need to be clicked and enlarged for a good veiw. I was hoping some1 could help me identify the maker?? I was told it could be a "109", but it doesnt seem to have the right characteristics of one. My guess is S&L...but im fairly new at identifying crosses. One things for sure....it looks better in person than in my pics! Thanks for any opinions.

    I would guess at an S&L too, not sure about the core though.

    Thanks adrian! I agree with the S&L.....I just cant figure out the core either. Do you agree with me that it doesnt look like a 109 tho?? or am I wrong about that? The 109s i have seen have the pronounced "balls" at the end of the 9s and 3. This sort of has em, but not as pronounced as others...so i dunno.? Thanks for the reassuance on the frame tho

    I've never seen a marked '109' and I'm fairly sure no-one else has either so it's a little tricky to nail a definite cross to this maker. There are crosses that are thought to be from Walter Henlein but as I said, impossible to be absolutely sure. I'll post my example that came with a packet a bit later to compare.

    that would be great! Id appreciate that. Ya, like you, I have only seen unmarked 109 examples and thought they were all unmarked. But that is the only lead or input that I have gotten on the core so far.....so it was worth a shot at trying to figure it out. Thanks for your help. I hate to be the guy that asks for help all the time.....so I try to use my questions sparingly! haha I really did try to do some homework and look around before I posted the thread too

    Here's what I have for a '109', an S&L type cross. It came in a packet for Walter & Henlein, whether they started life together I have no idea as packets and crosses were often mixed up from the awarding of the medal and from there on after!

    Are you saying it could be an S&L frame with a different core? Is the mixing and matching of EK2 components something that happens very often?

    S&L made frames for many makers. If the cross are unmarked and with a S&L frame, it's hard to find out of who made it.
    W&L also made frames for Juncker.

    thank you for posting AdrianC. I thank u for your time. I see that your 109 core has the defined, almost raised "balls" at the end of the 9's and 3 like I was saying earlier. Like Snni says tho, I think I may never find out exactly who made the core!? It has some charcteristics of the 109, but who knows? Thanks for everyones help! Much appreciated
