Default Very nice EK2

Got this from a member and wanted to share some pictures. It will add a slightly different dimention to the crosses in the collection as I didnt have a cross with the "frosty" frame but now I do.

Ring is marked but I can't make it out.

Looks to be unmessed with...not cleaned, core not repainted.

Thanks for looking and added comments.

Suspension loop slightly bent, no big deal to me. Ring still connected and maker marked, just can't make it out.

After viewing the ring with a stronger loop and sunny outside conditions the marking appears to be 92 for Josef Rucker & Sohn.

Odd maker mark : looks like a post war type mark ? The last number is a ' 2 ' - .
The first number might be a "3" ? - Legit 2 digit numbers ending with a 2 are : 22 - 52 and 92 ..... which it does not match .
The EK2 seams to be a standard S&L type . So to me an "added" number post war .

I did see that 92 is a legit EK2 maker according to the data here on the WAF.

I will try to get a better photo of the maker later tonight.

core looks as S&L so lets see what maker mark shows to us - if legit or postwar.

It's probably Boerger (=22)

Sorry for the long delay. My camera skills are crap and this is the best I can do with the camera I have.

Now it looks more like 93 and not 92.

I am trying to judge the cross, not the illegible (from pictures) signature. Signature in crosses Simm & Sohne "93" is block (as in "my" photos) and a small ring much thinner ... but I can be wrong
