    Bringing this thread back to life again with a new pickup, an EKII marked "CD 800" which I believe stands for the maker Carl Dillenius, Pforzheim.

    It looks like a good original to me (perhaps with some resoldering of the ring where it meets the frame). Please tell me if it isn't.

    I think you are right mate. It must have been repaired at some point.
    Nevertheless still a nice cross

    Good for you!

    That is a nice cross. The CD marked crosses are indeed thought to be made by
    Carl Dillenius and they are very well made crosses. If it was repainted, someone
    did a good job. I don't see any brush strokes or paint overlapping onto the frame.

    I am glad to see you posting it in this thread. I wish I could post more but I've been
    on a real dry spell lately. ----- Lack of funds.

    Thanks for your reply! Do you also feel that the ring has been resoldered onto the frame? It is a nice cross anyway, yes

    It's an expensive hobby we have! But at least you have your Napoleonic EKII 1813 too look at when you're feeling a bit down

    Very Nice Collection of EKs from before 1939. It is refreshing to see the older ones.

    Kenneth---
    I do not think your cross as been repaired. I checked my CD800 Ek2 and it
    also has a lot of solder where the ring is attached. I think it is just the way
    they put them together.

    BigJohn,
    Thanks, The members have put together a great selection of crosses. Some
    are just downright great. I personally own just a sampling of TR crosses. I
    really prefer the quality and variety of the Imperial ones.

    Here is a bit of variety-----

    I went back in this thread and looked at another 'CD 800'-marked example, and it seems you are correct. This is simply the way they made them. Thank you Greg!

    Good Day Gentlemen,

    I didn't really know if I should post this one here on just in the general WWI forum. But, since it's related to the EK, I figured here (or it can be moved?)

    To start, I also collect WWI german uniforms and I have a pair of HBT Drille hose that was missing a buckle on the back. I located two exact ones on ebay, bid on them and won (all for the adsorbent price of 5,95 euros) This is the photo that was on the auction.

    Now, when it came in, I received a pleasant suprise on the ribbon that came with them (I was expecting a couple of pieces of new ribbon) To what I've read on the forum, I believe both to be original. They passed a black lite test, a burn test and they have the "feel".(in the photo, the top two are originals I already owned and the new are the two at bottom)

    The seller told me that they were in a box of "stuff" which he had no clue about (Would love to see that box) I couldn't believe the luck, as I stated earlier, I was just after the buckles.
