    Roger...It will be "L W" a known mark, unknown maker......just a mis-strike by the maker, a Friday afternoon cross !
    Prost ! Steve.

    That was my first though too Steve so I compared it to my 'L W' and Roger's cross has a different frame and core.......

    Good theory but Deumer's L/11 mark is quite different to this. They used an incuse stamp.

    Steve, I know exactly how that feels and sometimes post before I've even had coffee. I like to live on the edge you know..........

    Here is an L W marked cross that looks to me like a match to the one posted.

    I lifted these images off another forum, hopefully everyone is cool with this.

    I received another EK2, marked 'K', today. It looks very close to the one I have started this thread with, with the odd mark. I post them here for comparison.

    'K' on the left, unknown on the right

    And now that I blow it up, I can see a big difference in the '3' in 1813. Back to the drawing board.
