    I agree, everything looks ok from the pics but better ones would help to be absolutely sure. Can you confirm the maker number please?

    L/52 is for C.F. Zimmermann, L/11 is Wilhelm Deumer.

    The makers mark looks like "LK52" to me. But the 2nd letter looks a bit odd so I could be wrong. What are the possible makers marks for a war service cross?

    Thanks

    There are many makers who made this award, not sure of the correct known amount off the top of my head.
    'LK52' is not a makers mark, 'L/52' is.

    Hey Nick,

    What type of photos would help here? I'm pretty much limited to my cameras quality (cybershot h55) and use macro mode with a fluroscent desk lamp to provide light (so I dont have to use flash). Any tips would be appreciated. I thought these photos came out fairly detailed.

    Thanks

    Cheers
