    Yes, it's a period conversion...I can see that in the hardware and workmanship, It's actually a very sturdy set-up, not as flimsy at it looks, lol...
    cheers and continued good luck,
    Glenn

    The new book "the iron cross 1813-1870-1914" suggests the mmK could be W. Kluge & Co. !

    This is also the first "K" marked Ek1 that I have ever seen or heard about.
    I do like the look of this cross. The paint loss and the patina make it very
    believeable to me. I am just a bit unsure about the makers mark.
    If you don't mind, I would like to post some pictures on another forum to
    see what the opinion is.

    To be quite honest , I have never been a fan of the this style cross.
    ( Large crown, closed "4" ) There are plenty of good ones but also
    a few fakes with this style core turn up every now and again.
    I have a h3ll of a time telling them apart. I do know that "Deumer"
    made a lot of crosses with this style core.

    Glenn,
    I like that Ek2 -Ek1 conversion. Some collectors are not
    to crazy about them because it's hard to prove just when
    the work was done, But I like them. They most definately
    so some character.

    Thanks, Greg...It's a Screwback EKI converted to Pinback...I've always felt very confident of the hardware, pin-plate, C-Catch and workmanship being period to early 1920s, having seen similar quality work in the past...
    cheers, Glenn

    I knew that I was typing without thinking again

    Hi Greg,
    I was hoping on your opinion :-)
    Please post it where ever you feel appropriate, I am looking forward to the verdict, holding my breath :-)()()(
    I must say, is it a fake, they did a hell of a good job on the "old" patina !!
