    Do you have all the rest of the Schinkels? There are 9 in all, right?

    Yes, there are nine as far as I know. I'm not too worried about the non magnetic/magnetic variations, just the visual differences. No-one will know if they stick to a magnet when they're behind glass.

    Hi Franz,
    I would say it's possibly L/56 - Funcke & Bruninghaus.
    For example, Steinhauer & Luck had the PKZ number '4' and the LDO number L/16. While L/16 marked EK2s are very rare to find, '4' marked crosses aren't so they wouldn't be classed as a rare maker.
    Funcke & Bruninghaus only made L/56 marked crosses, they don't appear to have made them marked or unmarked in any other way, therefore this could potentially be the rarest maker of EK2s.

    Other than the LDO marked crosses I would say the maker '60' - Katz & Deyhle are a rare maker to find, especially marked.

    Interesting question, I wonder what anyone else thinks...........?

    "20" Zimmermann is a very very rare too, marked 14 Lauer also IMO.Usually the rarest is what you are looking for at the moment, to me now the Godet is the rarest....

    very interesting, got keep eye out for L/56, 20, 14. (probably never see one)

    One last question, how much more does LDO go? for let say the L/16? (ribbon and cross)

    Just a moment.. Zimmermann didn' t produce EKIIs marked 20. Where are these crosses ?

    Yes, the 14 marked are very very hard to find.

    @ Sonny : what a great collection !!! it 's great also because it 's rich of uncommon/rare EKs !

    Hello Fabri,

    I don't said marked "20", just C.F. Zimmermann("20").I beliave Zimmermann made EKII-s.Maybe this type belongs to him:

    Hi JŠnos

    thanks for show this very nice cross. You 're right this cross is very hard to find but I don't see anything in common with EKIs manufactured by C.F.Zimmermann.
    I 'm really surprised that someone sayd that he produced this one... dates and frame are different. Has someone just seen a packet from this maker too ?
