2 rare Meybauer ek's with cross-shaped backplate.

Recommended Posts

Those are nice, I used to have an early 14-18 one out of 800 silver, and a TR era 14-18 one, but never had a 39-45 one.

I had 2 1914's  but ended up selling them again.
I had a total of 3 with this set-up, one  was an upgrade so I sold 1.

To the best of my knowledge these are the only 2 variatons around

Very nice and rare. Still missing this one. Did one of them come from Giel?

They are rare indeed.

No, none of them came from Giel.
I don't recall where I did get them, I think on a german forum or auction.

There's also a Schinkel with this hardware, those are basically impossible to find.

Yes, sorry. Found the picture from about ten years ago when Giel sold his and it was a different one.

Got one of the Meybauer Schinkel SB. Posted it a long time ago on the WAF. Need to dig up the pictures.

No problem.

Very good, that is one of about 5 I know of.
They are very hard to find.
I missed one about 15 years ago, it took me over 10 years to find another........
