    Is it possible the core might have been made by Klein & Quenzer?

    I'm trying to understand how a S&L core can be so similar in date style to a K&Q?

    Why would S&L make a core with the style of numerals so consistent for years and then make one that is completely different but looks very much like another manufacturer?

    I'm aware the seller is a very knowledgeable collector of 1957 awards but has the above been discussed anywhere or and questions asked?

    Here are a selection of Klein & Quenzer cores found on 1939 EKs, look at the number '3's and judge for yourselves..........?

    Adrian, It is my belief that Ralph's cross is a St u L made example...with the first St u L core made between 1958-1960, there was a later core varient in the early 1960's...other than 57'er RK's, there are known examples with Klein & Quenzer frames, but it is unknown if they made them..K & Q were certainly around, they closed down in 1985, but there are no known attributed EK II's from K & Q.....I show the early St u L "1939" core in the first photograph, notice the flat top on the bottom dot/blob of the "9" of 39, it is the same as Ralph's, but it is not a feature of any K & Q (wartime or other) cores that you show in the montage..... I also show the varient in the second photograph.
    Prost ! Steve.
