Dear Chris

Could you elaborate on what the Klein and Quenzer theory is?

Kind regards and thanks in advance, Laurentius

Hi, after numerous wild ass guesses in the past, in both published and online lists, i think it is generally accepted that "KO" is in fact Klein and Quenzer. By far the most likely maker of KO.

This is confusing because it has 30 KO bagged crosses in this box!

As of 1915, Kling was primarily a maker of rings, with a growing market in patriotic jewelry.

Starting at only £480 ...

Sad to to hear about Michael Baldwin, his book Field Grey has a prominent place on my bookshelf.

Yeah, but it is a manufacturing distributer.

I think they were to small and geographically wrongly placed to be "KO" but it is interesting that someone had the box and 30 bagged KO!

Perhaps a subcontractor for assembling parts into completed crosses or just a local distributor.
