Imperial Eks

Article about: Excellent EKs you have there Chopperman. Can you tell me more info about this one?

    Well, definitely not S-W or WS... It looks like the one you posted, so I guess it's the mystery M or IVI! Is there anything in particular that is known about this maker, as counter-intuitive as that sounds. Is it a common maker? Thanks!

    I will try to get a decent shot of the mark.

    It's just one of the many unknown makers. It's not a real common makers mark but not one I would consider rare.

    Wagner crosses would be marked S-W or WS for Sy-Wagner and
    for Wagner & Sohn.
    BTW-- nice cross .
    Greg, I was under the impression that for the firm Johann Wagner and Sohn by the start of the Great War, used a number of stamps, including, JW, JWS, W, W & S, Wa, WS, and WuS. I take it that Johann Wagner and Sohn and Wagner and Sohn are the same firm....and that Sy-Wagner, started in 1859 by Jeremie Sy and Albert Wagner have no affiliation with 'other' Wagner company.

    You are right, Johann Wagner is thought to be associated with all those stamps.
    That is one reason I would like to see the mark on the cross in question. I have
    never seen a cross that was just marked "W". (not that they don't exsist) but
    I have yet to see one posted. However I have seen many with the M or IVI mark.

    Gents...Ive made this thread a 'sticky', as not only is it showing some superb crosses but I feel it is a learning curve for many, including my self !...and an important reference thread. Thanks to Chopperman, Greg, for starting this thread off, and for showing us his impressive collection, which I am sure has inspired many !....keep those crosses coming gentlemen !

    Nice I would love to see more.

    I've been going through a bit of a dry spell. Slow at
    work so no money for Eks.

    I know what you mean Chopperman. Ive been living on the rest of my deployment money until now, I finally found a full time job. Some of these Ive had a while just never posted them. First up I think is a MM V. Its hard to tell but thats the only thing it could be is a V or U. The second one is a lightly stamped R. I will keep posting more as I still need to take more pictures.
