    Hi G43,

    The maker isn't rare (S&L), but the double stamping of the PKZ no.4 and the LDO no. L/16 are fairly rare and desirable. I'm no expert on these, but I think Nick (Woolgar) has a nice example in his collection and will be able to give you more info if required. The case is a nice bonus too.

    Regards, Ned.

    Ned is correct. The maker is arguably the most common one out there. The rarity lies within the double stamped makers marks, their PKZ number 4 and the LDO mark L/16.

    Double stamped crosses do crop up from time to time but I wouldn't say they're massively more valuable than a regular cross. I personally wouldn't pay anymore for a double mark but for those who like the anomaly, they might. It's an individual call.

    I'll move it to the EK forum as well.
