    No idea on current values, sorry.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I have read that they are for navy so they don't rust at sea, but that might not be true.

    You are right Jerry, its just a story and not a true one !........brassed cored EKI & II's are not for Navel personel, its just one of a number of non-ferrous materials used by a number of makers,in the course of constructing EK's, especially in Imperial times, remember, there were no official bodies to supervise quality...such as the LDO, as in the TR period...and it still happened then !
    Prost ! Steve.

    P.S. Jerry..... Looks like I balloxed up when I answered your post...pressed the wrong link, edited ! not replied ! sorry ! too much Sherry ! hic !

    No worries Steve and it's good that you could supply the truth of the matter about non ferrous EK's.

    Your cross is a good one. Possible made by Deumer. This style of cross is sometimes referred
    to as a "replacement" cross as these were made in the 1920s-30s. This was done for those vets
    who wanted to have a second cross or to replace one that was lost or damaged.

    The frames are made of a alloy (probably Tombac) and is silver plated. The silver plate is almost
    always worn off the beading, showing the yellow metal underneath.

    Personally, I like the look of these. I like the gold beading between the silver rim and the black core.
