Collection of EK2's

Recommended Posts

Another arrival and not one you would call mint. A little worse for wear with missing paint and a worn frame. Crown detail is nice though and it's marked 800 on the ring. Has a nice authentic ribbon sew on also. Not quite as bad in hand.

Well 3 more have arrived, all obtained right here on this forum. The first one is one of those hard to determine maker marks. It is a small N or Z, but how do you know? The Z marks I've seen have been fairly large, so maybe this is an N. Does anyone have any idea? The core detail on this one is one of the weakest I have seen. The crown has very little detail and the striking does not seem sharp at all. It is in nice shape all the same. What does everyone think?

The final one is marker H on the ring. Appears to have a small solder repair done to the ring but it's pretty clean so who cares? Not a bad looking cross. How often is this m,aker seen I wonder?

The next one is marked W&S. I have a couple of examples by this maker, but they have used different cores and different maker marks on the ring. It may be crazy but I'm trying to collect all the various variations of thier maker mark.

It's been awile since I've picked up an Imperial EK2 but this one arrived today. It was said to be marked W when I bought it and I think it may be, although it's kind of hard to tell. Does anyone have any opinions on the maker?

Hallo Steve

you really have some stunning examples, a great collection, and affordable too.

I took the liberty of high-lighting this beauty in Post 93, a tad to show off its attributes.
