Default 1813 ek2

My latest acquisition. I believe it's known as the bent stem core from the Gleiwitz foundry. Can anyone tell me when this cross was most likely produced?

(The first two pics were taken with diffused sunlight, the rest with direct sunlight.)

That is a nice collection!
Where did you get the information that this is made in Gleiwitz?

Thank you all for your kind words! I'm glad you like the cross and display

To Michel's question - I've been under the assumption that this type of core is a Gleiwitz product due to the serif style 1813 date. However, after speaking with an expert on the subject today, I'm not so sure anymore. Apparently it remains a mystery just who exactly produced this core.

Best regards,

Eric
