A nice original private purchase cross with a "slant W" core used by several manufacturers.

To the best of my knowledge, Meybauer was actually NOT one of the users of the "slant W" core! The hinge on the example is imo not Meybauer and the shape of the main pin is similar (in that it is "coke-bottle) but imo definitely not Meybauer ("sexy" coke-bottle) either.

Here are the reverses of 6 x 1914 Meybauer EK1s.

Good cross, interwar period (late interwar in my opinion), maker is currently unknown.
