    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.

    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

    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.
