Hi folks,

I was offered this cased EKI.

I would like to know, if possible, what is the maker.

Thanks in advance

Hello Douglas,

It was made by the firm of Rudolf Souval, Wien - '98' or L/58.

These EK1s were never marked with 98 though were they? Only unmarked or L/58. Wonder why?

It appears the L/58 mark is almost 100% deemed postwar.

L58 (screwbacks) for the most part are ok.

Thanks everybody for helping me to identify this cross.

Very interesting information about the makers mark.

This one bears no mark.

Why are 'L/58'-marked pinbacks deemed postwar when they posess the same core, hardware and frame die flaws as the pre-45 crosses by Souval? I don't understand this.
