EKI, an EKI mini & a 935 stamped EKII


Recommended Posts

Any ideas who may have made them?
The EKI and mini came together in a case, I wouldn’t have thought they both belonged to the same recipient but I like to think they did. They were an impulse buy at a small militaria fair about 10 years ago where hardly anything took my fancy, I had money burning a hole in my pocket and just wanted to buy something before I left to go home.
The 2nd class cross is only marked 935 and I don’t remember where or when I bought it, it’s a very good example, not quite as good as the LV crosses in my opinion but still much better looking than many others.
If anyone has an idea which manufacturer may have made them please let me know.

I not understand WW1 EK but very nice piece congrat


Is no one going to stick their neck out and have a stab at the maker(s)?

Hi Tony,

Unfortunately both of your crosses are very generic.

The first class uses the the "slant W" core which was used

by several different makers and the frame does not have

any of the more unique hardware ( pins, hinges catches )

that we associate with certain makers.

The same holds true of the second class. A generic core

used by many different makers. The only really unique feature

of the entire set is the 925 stamp on the ring. That is something

not often seen. Congrates.

Thanks for taking the time to reply and at least I know now that apart from the 925 stamp on the 2nd class they both average but at least in better than average condition.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
