    Clear photos are needed. I can't stress this enough. Here is a thread that is a prime example of how proper lighting and camera angles will affect the outcome.

    Take your photos from a little further away to allow the camera to focus. The rest can be done with a photoshop program.

    I tried again doing what you suggested, I sharpened the smaller image in photoshop to try and bring out the marking more.

    I didn't say or infer that I had access to an example. What I said was I have seen references to such a maker, one such being in post #7 here: 1914 EK 2 - ring mark - Germany: All Eras: The Iron Cross - Gentleman's Military Interest Club

    Yes I can see that too now. The S would be on its side though.

    Heinrich Schneider, Dresden?
    eBay Australia Guides - WW1 GERMAN IRON CROSS MANUFACTURER'S MARKINGS (before anyone else jumps on me for the source).

    S also attributed to Heinrich Schneider (?), Schwartz (?), or Sedlazek (?) of Dresden
    Makers of the 1914 EK2

    And S again attributed to "S" (EK I and II): Heinrich Schneider, Dresden

    I'm trying to upload some better images but I seem to be having problems posting images at the moment, I'm not quite sure why

    Edit: apparently this posted? just when I try to upload images it doesn't work, I wasn't having issues last night.
    I think a moderator may have to approve the posts?

    Here's KatheBrum's images. I converted them to jpeg, (png is too big) and also increased the smaller one from 88px to 300px. Hope that helps.
