My wartime Souval EK1
One of the 1st things I picked up when i got back into the hobby 15 or so years ago. Always wanted one as a kid, but never found one(isn't the internet great for us collectors that grew up without it!) As I remember it, this one has all the characteristics of wartime production, beading flaw, magnetic pin, low 3, etc. If I had the resources, I would have a room full of EK1's from every time frame, as it is I have too many interests and am happy to have this one and a 1914.

Nice cross Jim!
There is no reason why you can't get a room full over time
