    Hi

    Two nice crosses

    The first is an L/13 not a 113

    L/13 is Meyabauer and L/11 is Deumer

    The Krim shield is by the maker Friedrich Orth of Vienna, and is the rarer variant by them having the outer edge lateral prongs rather than the more often seen soldered inner flatwire type. This may be an LDO Krim shield that was generally supplied without cloth backing, and often no backplate as well as the lateral clips were designed to be able to be utilised without using them, The material is sheet metal (steel) that's been bronzed.

    Although I wouldn't condone doing it, you'll more than likely find the maker mark "f.o." stamped lightly in the reverse side at the bottom pointy end bit of the shield, but you may break a prong clip or two in the process, so i'd leave it.

    Nice photo's as well.

    Regards, Ned.

    These guys are pretty good. Check out their shop on the top right, lots of choices at what I consider fair prices.
