    Hi, it looks ok. Any maker mark on the ring? Cheers, Richard.

    Perfectly good cross
    The unique style of the crown on this would lead me to believe
    that this cross was made by "MFH".

    Unfortunately with still don't know exactly who "MFH" was.

    sorry chopperman, i'm new at determining fake vs original. when i first started collecting i thought all this stuff was real but now since i joined this site i've gotten a real education. i got a wwi ek 2 with no makers mark or at least i can't tell. the ring is pretty beat up, what do you think?

    Most of my crosses are not maker marked. Not having a stamp on the ring is not a good indicater of fake vs. original. If you have any doubts about one you might be looking at, post it hear. I'm sure someone will give an opinion or send me PM and I will take a look.
