That's more than interesting-Nr.1 is a textbook Godet-is it a convex one? If not it would be the first flat one I've ever seen. Nr.2 is strange-Is it the one from DN's update a few weeks ago? All the years I've never seen one of them-this is the 2nd in acouple of weeks!The core looks a little like the "square"type,but as long I haven't got the 2nd type in my collection I can't compare them.Let's wait what Mike can tell us about these two EKs.

The unmarked Godet does appear to be flat. I have one virtually identical to it that is also flat. The second one is very odd but in a nice way. I like it. The reinforcing on the corners also is unique. It looks rounded so that the corners would not damage the uniform cloth.

The Godet is flat. The second cross is nicely vaulted and the corner reinforcments are rounded so as not to damage the uniform.

Don, these are Very Very nice indeed!

Thanks for the clarification as to why the points have the build up on them..makes perfect sense than fluff the expensive cloth and render the cloth all tatty.

Thanks for showing!

Kind regards

Paul

Not to reiterate Micha's question, but is the second cross the one from DN's site? I saw he had one listed a few weeks ago that had sold. Never seen one like it before. Really unique! The unmarked Godet is particularly nice itself, and flat too. Two excellent crosses!

But you did reiterate. Yes, it is the one from Detlev's update. One of the few times I was faster than the rest.

Sorry, but I had to know if you were the one. Now, no more sleep on Thursday nights, thanks. Seriously though, I thought it was the same one, great buy, both crosses I would love to have in my collection. Congrats!!! Russel

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
