Default 1870 ek ii

I've had this EK II with it's interesting spange ribbon for a few years, finally getting around to posting it for review. I'm not really well versed in Imperial, I'm interested to hear you comments.
Thanks for looking,
Steve

Thanks guys. What type of core is it? Is it attributable to a maker?

It's a Type A core. I can't name a maker to it personally.

I agree.
I don't think any of us can claim to be able to identify the maker of a 1870 Ek2
simply by it's core or frame. Most of the cores were cast at two foundries
and the 2 big makers, Godet and Wagner are thought to have shared frames.

It's a very nice cross and I really like the ribbon bow.

I am so glad the correct historical reality is finally used as Gide here .
Well spoken Greg .


Maybe on that point I could offer ,,,an idea .
maybe now we can open a thread of what this interchanging of frames and cores historical reality could mean's .

what we know fore sure ,,and what not ,,and conclusions we can make from it.

our views ,,,,still have to sink in to all of us ,as the right info is scattered all around the imperial section in dozens's of separate threads .

to me ,

I think ..it could be a very interesting thread ...

They are AWS style but I believe more than one maker is thought to have used the same dies or design. This design is pictured in the AWS catalogue.
