    Default WWI EK2's What do yo think???

    I had just recieved these 2 WWI 1914 EK2's and 1 ribbon bar. The one on the left has a larger ring and marked MKH? the crown on this one is different than the one on the right. The one on the right Has a Smaller ring and marked L something. It appears to have been repainted at one point and the ribbon replaced. Both have magnetic centers and appear to be three piece construction. The ribbon bar appears to be of the period and was made up as it doesnot have a backer. I need some opinions on these. Their seems to be some of these becoming available these days.
    Thanks,

    They appear to be originals.
    The one is marked "MFH" and the other could be "KO". You need to separate your crosses. Post only photos of one at a time, you make it very confusing.
    Not in the best condition, but still worth having.

    Thanks Ralph

    Sorry. I will see to it. The MFH is the one in worst shape. The other one is The KO? Was told they both came from estates. One in Washington State and the other with the bar ribbon fron Arizona. What's happening these days??? I am seeing more of these WWI EK'S showing up.
    Thanks for the help.

    Hi John,
    I agree with Ralph.
    The one cross is definitely a "MFH". It is easily identified
    even without being marked. The crown on their cross is
    completely unique. Not used by any other maker. The
    other cross very well might be a KO. Good pictures of
    the core and frame details such as the beading at the
    inner corners would help in nailing down a maker.

    We are closing in on the 100 year anniversary of the war
    People are going to start moving ww1 items trying to
    cash in on the increased interest.

    Hi John,
    Sorry, I don't believe so. If marked, it will be either on the ribbon ring, or on the jump ring. Some other makers have quite a bit of detail in the crowns as in this one made by Godet.
