    Is this the original EK2 ?

    I bought this EK2 at Japanese auction.
    There are no marking of number indicating manufacturer at the ring.
    It looks like very old. This was very dirty when I got, so I cleaned up by a eraser.
    The magnet attracts this Ek2.
    I don't know if there is an unmarked EK2.
    Please write your opinion.
    Forgive my poor English

      How did you recognize that this was manufactured by "Klein & Quenzer".
      Please teach me.

        You're welcome.

        K&Q has a very typical "3" in the date, that gives it away

              Welcomb to the forum :
              Yes an early K&Q that would not be marked ... any mark would be on the ribbon ring usually as a small number .- often hard to see .
              Careful when cleaning - better ask if not sure - sometimes it helps to clean but it also can cause more damage .
              Heavy patina is only natural and sought after by many collectors .
              A larger look at the cross .
