    Nice Rettenmaier Rory - don't forget it's L59 and not L/59.

    Good to see a decent compliment of extra marks too! Can you post some larger pics please?

    Nice cross i wonder what the different marks stand for or how they originated

    Very nice addition !! My belief is that the marks are quality stamps

    It's strange that Rettenmaier felt the need to inspect and stamp their EKs so many times, unless each stamp represents one part of the process of manufacture but if that is the case, why do some have more marks than others and of differing shape?

    One of those little intrigues within the hobby!

    Defiantly Adrian there are many little things like this that just makes you want to know there must be some employees left around somewhere who worked in the factory they could answer a few questions i bet
