Default EK1 and EK2 identification help

These are my only Imperial crosses, the EK1 is vaulted and marked just "800", the EK2 I cannot make out the mark on the suspension ring.

Can you tell me what makers and approximate value?

Thanks for looking.

Jeff

EK2 has generic core, so if there is no mark or unreadable mark, it will stay unknown.

The EK1 looks Carl Dillenius, but from that angle it is more guess than certainty.

What about posting the obverse of EK1 separately and reverse with closed pin?

Here is the obverse. I have to take a pic with the clasp shut.

Thank you!

Reverse

I found my jeweler's loupe, the mark on the Ek2 looks like "MB".

Thank you,

Jeff

Thanks for additional pics. Now I am sure that EK1 is Carl Dillenius.

I don´t recognize the EK2 mark, but whoever it is, you can expect something around 50-60 USD for marked EK2 1914 in this (very good) condition. And something under 200 USD for EK1.

Is the yellowish EK2 ribbon ww1 period or older one? For me it resembles 19th century ribbons?
