    Interesting that the reverse of the cross is quite tarnished, and yet
    the front - along with the inside of the case - are not............
    Regards,

    Hello Doug and thank you for posting.
    I'm not sure about the case or the outer carton but I would be unhappy with the EK first and foremost.
    Souval crosses marked L15 were the subject of a thread only recently. Have a look here.

    I would stay away from that cross

    It doesn't have the short needle so I think that could indicate it is a post war Souval with correct hardware? I think the jury might still be out on that. The case and box look OK to me but I have doubts that the cross is original to the case as i would expect the patina and indeed, rust to have stained the lining.

    Here we have an interesting set to debate.
    Cross has a Souval frame and maybe the core too but I don't see it well. The back, right, it has the long pin. In my opinion this cross has all contemporary parts just I would like to know when was produced.
    About the back look: I think it 's not rust but patina/light oxidation, it could be happen where the back plane of cross don't touch the base of the case so the air/humidity could let that patina.
    Case: nice and original, the so called domed case.
    Overcarton: it 's a minefield, unfortunately I have no knowledge because I don't collect them.. so I let someone else to say his opinion.
