    Hi Guys,
    I bought this from one of our members on the forum. I cant remember the maker ( its unmarked) I only read it 400 times now I forgot. If I don't put it up now I will forget,
    Anyway
    I loved nicely toned items. This one is great

    Deep russets and gold with even toning. which makes it look flashy and gold plated,

    Been waiting a while for one I liked, and this one fit the bill.

    Wanted to Share and will update who the maker is once he gets back to me or I find it on my own.
    Thanks

    Is this an unmarked B.H.Meier?

    "The maker is Souval, it is a textbook wartime produced one."

    The 'Crow's feet' gave it away to me as a Souval also.

    Bead flaw on 12 o'c arm left side of frame, "crows feet" as Glenn mentioned, rounded corners beside hakenkreuz and correct frame bead width to name a few...indicate a wartime RS Wien!
    Enjoy your first cross General.

    I'm looking for one of these also, if anyone has upgraded or whatever let me know. In fact I bought one on the forum myself in the classifieds, only to have the payment refunded with an email that it has sold on the WAF... I wonder if the gold toning could be the result of living in a smokers house? A vintage guitar collector friend of mine calls it "bar tan" on vintage guitars where the white binding has virtually turned an orange color. At any rate, on a metal piece like this, smoke stains would just be a film on the surface.

    I know little about EK's, virtually nothing actually... but one thing about this one that I maybe haven't seen on other ones is that the 3 in 1939 seems to hang down a bit?

    My main focus for years has was coins, the toning her seems to just be a function of silver and time it had to have been in laying on its reverse as the reverse is pretty much tarnished over. well aged like a good steak
