    Again--- My thanks to Strepile for allowing me to use
    his pictures.

    The type 2 and 3 are easily recognized. The type 3
    because of it's crown and the type 2 because of the
    very stylized numbers in the date (and the paint loss)

    Nice presentation. Greg is right, 2nd and 3rd core are easily recognizable. First core too, but there is one core, which is very similar to 1st core AWS. I think itīs made by unknown maker, but I can be wrong in this. Would be good to post that one as well, unfortunately, I donīt have it in my folder.

    Here are the AWS crosses.

    WAF member Streptile did a lot of research on these
    and took some very nice pictures. I chose to use his
    instead of mine because of the great picture quality.

    Thanks for posting these ! Very informative, I see the differences clearly now .

    Gentlemen, here is another cross I would like to share with you: EK2 made by Carl Dillenius.

    I have always admired the very fine and precise craftsmanship of this maker so I am more than willing to overlook those few stains on the frame.

    Speaking of the frame and beading: what is the reason for its quite goldish color (especially when compared with the ring)? A different material or perhaps some other factor?

    That is a really good looking cross.
    You are right about the quality of the CD crosses.

    I am guessing that the frame and the ring might be
    grades of silver.

    Very nice CD cross :-)
    Color variation could be difference in finish too, polished pressed sheet silver oxidize different than tread . Or it could be, as Greg says, different silver contend !?

    Nice CD cross.
    I think itīs different silver content. It is nearly impossible for producer to have same amount of rings for same amount of frames in stock. So it is natural that you run out of frames sooner than of rings from same silver content (or vice versa).

    Thank you all for your comments and helpful explanations. I am glad I could learn a new thing or two :-).

    Greetings, I would like to share with you my very first EK I by Sy&Wagner.

    Given my rather modest budget I spent several months by nearly day to day looking for the right one and this one here is the winner. I cannot exactly explain why - perhaps it has the right degree of "weariness", to my eye. Maybe it is the contrast between the silver beading, on the one hand, and the blackened frame and slightly worn core, on the other hand.

    The German dealer mentioned it could be produced around 1917. Would you agree?

    That is a great looking cross.
    Like you, I think that the wear and patina gives
    the cross a better sense of the history behind them.

    congratulations.
