    Hey Sonny,

    Starting with the Round Three, this is the variation known as 'Swastika on a pedestal'. Note the stippled core too, this is a good addition and one I'm still looking for.

    There are five known types of Round Three EK2:
    Thick
    Thin
    Deschler
    Swastika on pedestal
    Schinkel 'B'

    Which brings me nicely onto the other cross! Not a Schinkel 'B' unfortunately but still a sought after variation. Usually referred to as the 'Odd Date EK2'. This is generally believed to be an original EK by an unknown maker. There is a thread here showing a few examples.

    As for prices, the Round Three I would guess at about 250 and the Odd Date EK2 I can't really say for sure. I've sold one of mine for 160. I think it was a fair collector to collector price, these are rarer than the Schinkels and Round Threes but very hard to price as they don't come up for sale very often.

    Thanks alot for the help, Adrian.
    The prices you mention are very close to what I have to pay.
    I think I will take them both! My wife will kill me one day!
    Who wants to inherit my Ek2 collection in that case?

    Nice couple of crosses Sonny.
    The EKII in Shinkel B style is hard to find, rarest than that R3.

    Hi Fabri,
    You mean the real Schinkel B or the Odd date, as shown here?
    I just have to be sure not to misunderstand it.
