    Hi Greg, You've got a great collection. Here's my EKS.
    First up a EK1 maker marked FR whi I believe to be Friedländer of Berlin. I like this one due to it's highlighted frame & toned edge.

    Cheers,



    Richard.

    Next a late war EK2. It's still 3 piece construction; but the frame is silver plated steel (magnetic). As you can see very little of the silver plating remains & there's rust coming through the paint. Horrible quality really

    It's maker marker MEH. Anybody know who that is?

    You have some very nice examples.
    The first one is indeed a Friedlander. They have a unique style
    crown and very thin, very straight letters in the date and as
    you pointed out, the outer edges of the rim seem to develope
    a very nice dark patina.

    Here is my example. It is the only cased cross I own.

    I really like your convex "800" cross. I like the patina on the
    frame and the wear on the core. I much prefer an example
    like this to a mint, never seen the light of day cross. I showes
    that it has some history behind it.

    As for the MEH , we still do not know the maker.

    Thanks for sharing your crosses.
