    Hi Rory and welcome to the forum. Thank you for posting your EK, an original cross. I can't give you a clue as to the maker right now but I can take a better look tomorrow. Can you post any better photos and one of the makers mark perhaps? There is a sticky thread at the top of this sub forum with some tips.

    My guess, although I am NOT an EK expert, is that it could be a "65" marked Klein und Quenzer. Hopefully Adrian, Nick or somebody can confirm the maker for you soon enough. Some better photographs would certainly help, if possible.

    Regards,

    Carl

    It's not a '65' Carl. K&Q marked their crosses with a direct stamp, not an incuse one like above. This maker has used a stamp which makes a large indentation and the numbers are in raised relief within. Have a search for '65' and compare the marks. Good guess though, I can see why you thought it by looking at the '3's in the date.

    They all look like Souval crosses from the pics. The distinctive 'birds foot' corners can be made out. Obviously less shaky pics would help...........

    Yes Adrian, it was the '3's that lead me to that belief. I will check on the '65's in a moment, thanks for that. And good luck Rory, with guys like Adrian around, help is at hand!

    Cheers,

    Carl

    Tell us about your collection Rory, what do you collect? Do you specialise in a particular area? What interests you? What collecting goals do you have?
