    Default Stone Mint B. H. Mayer EKI Cased ?

    Hi guys. I always get suspicious of stone mint items. I wanted to post this guy for review. This piece is cased and from my research compares very favorably to original pieces....

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Hi Matt,

    It's most likely from the 'Russian Hoard' found a few years back, a lot of mint cased B.H.Mayer EK 1's were quickly snapped up when they came to market and i've noticed a few lately floating around again for sale, there's been a couple on WAF Estand lately.

    Certainly looks Russian Hoard! Quite common but striking crosses!

    They're still around, as I said, there's been a couple on WAF lately. They can also be had with the original orange cardboard cartons in some cases.

    Look and you shall find. If you look long enough....

    Beautiful Set...I'm amazed at the condition...You won't find one better than that, friend...hope the price is right for you! I picked up a cased unmarked BH Mayer at an antique-shop in Seattle about 4 years ago for $150, but not nearly as nice as yours...!
    cheers, Glenn

    Beautiful cross!
    You might wanna snap it up if it is at a reasonable price.
    There are two for sale by a dealer. Both for $900-950 per piece.
    Crazy prices.
