Default Help with EK2 - Maker

Hi All,

It may be difficult, but, by any chance, do you know which Maker manufactured this EK2? The mark looks like M1??

Thank you very much.

Best regards

Antonio

The cross itself looks like EK from this thread:

Besides, vertical bars in "M" are straight, and in "W" a little oblique

Have never seen or heard of "IW" but we have seen many "LW".

Here is an IW, purported to be Iohann Wagner.
Notice that the I is too close to the W for it to be an L.

For me these two (first and last) signatures are very similar
