Default 1914 EK2 (with a grain of salt)

What to make out of this one?
Definitely not three-piece, weird crown, but it appears to be well-made and naturally aged.
COULD it be a private purchase?
Be easy on me, I’m risking a lot of credibility on a very dubious hunch.... ��
It appears as if there is a possibility that at least the obverse is pebbled.
Would a jeweler REALLY let that crown pass?

Bill,
There have been lots of discussions over this style cross and I don't
think we have ever come to a conclusion as to what they are.

here is just one of several threads ----
