    Beautiful crosses. Look at the oakleaves on the Zeich marked cross of Richard's. The crispness of the detailing on the 1870 is superb. I just can't get over the need to collect these things.

    i thought i`d show mine , i`ve only got two but really like them . one is marked WILM on the ring which is for HJ Wilm, Hof_und Silberschmiede , Berlin and the lesser quality example is marked L. W which i believe is an unknown manufacturer , sorry the photography is not the best

    cheers Al

    it happened to my thread, i have shown my L.W. cross earlier on in the post, and saw that the L.W. had suddenly changed to 'Luftwaffe', i know sometimes due to my age i do some daft things but i couldnt remember typing out 'Luftwaffe' !.......anyway, nice pair of EK II's.

    Thanks for the comments gents , there are some cracking crosses posted here , and it`s real hard holding back from purchasing more I would really like to add a nice vaulted 1st class version at some stage Oradour , i know what you mean about the postings , i read mine back and couldn`t believe it , i thought old age was catching up with me i think there`s a programme that tries to stop abbreviations

    cheers AL

    Hi Chaps, Here's my latest. I was really after a screwback; but couldn't resist this EK1 by Wagner & Sohne, Berlin. My pics don't do it justice; but it's got a thick black patination. Probably worn and then it's not been cleaned for the last 90 years. The WS maker mark is by the hook.
