MIKE,

Upset that Mayer (26) is not on top? I was actually suprised to see K&Q so far ahead. I always new people liked K&Q, but I did not know by how much. I guess it is a good thing I landed that mint, cased, and cartoned K&Q EK1 that recently sold on E-stand. I can't wait to see that beauty!

Here are two EKI's that I always liked. Not in the best of condition, and somewhat tarnished, but still pretty nice. This first one is by Rudolf Wächtler & Lange.
