    Hi Greg,
    Looking forward to the new book in progress .
    Keep me informed when it arrives at the shops, please :-D
    Sounds really great ;-)
    The other book mentioned by Wernitz, is the one I allready have ! Really great book, very comprehensive !!!I recommend it to everyone , and it comes in english too. It is actually 2 books, one with the history and a lot of pictures and facts and another one only with pictures of crosses, a lot of them ;-D

    There is a book in the works that will show most
    of the 1914 Eks in all of there variations. It has been
    in the works for a couple of years now and will
    probably be another year before it is published.

    I know that many of the cross collectors on the
    WAF and GMIC forums have donated close up
    detailed shots to the project. It should be a
    great reference once it comes out.

    Hi Guys,

    What I miss the most, is a referrence book, that helps identifying all the unmarked crosses !!
    In the previous mentioned book, it allways says "cross made by unknown maker", even though some of these makers are known here !

    Unfortunately some will never be known.
    It is believed that there were a lot of little mom and pop
    shops assembling crosses with the parts being made
    by other firms.

    I would be happy if we could at least identify the ones
    that are marked. Some are well documented like
    Godet or Meybauer but we still can not agree on who
    KO was or put a name to MOST the the maker marks
    that we see.

    I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
    myself around.

    Well, i think the way to collect these, will be to buy those that appels to you, and be extra happy if they can be identyfied ;-/
    I know this about to be the case for me ;-)


    ps I find the KO story very very strange :-?
