    The black in the core looks like it's been filled in with a marker pen.

    Moved to the correct forum. Please can you rotate the photos too.
    Best Regards,

    Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....

    I agree with Gary, looks like its been coloured with a marker or paint

  6. #5


    Yes, it is overpainted for sure. What are the measures in millimeters of that cross? Maybe it is just a EKII modification?

    anyone care to comment on the large difference in how low the dates sit when obverse is compared to reverse?

  8. #7


    Your right! Did not clue into that

    there's variance, or course, with respect to the distance between the date and frame from cross to cross, but i was wondering if anyone has seen this kind of variance within the same cross.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    This is an interesting cross. A forgery but certainly interesting.
    Further to the observations above.
    Looking closely at the frame although both the obverse and reverse dies show some similarities there are I believe some marked differences, indicating to ME that there are two dies in use.
    I wonder where this one originates it is not a quality fake I am familiar with.
    I have changed the pictures to make them more acceptable.
