1914 EK1 screwback help needed

Recommended Posts

I have this 1914 EK1 screwback which I am unsure of the manufacturer (it has an illegible marking near the screw and some markings around the edge of the inside of the disc which I cannot make out). Any information would be appreciated.

the illegible marking along the rim of the disc probably reads"victoria drgm". these are also found with partial markings such as "victoria" or "drgm" and also without any marks whatsover. the markings most likely pertain to the stamped attachment disc; it's a nice fairly seldom-encountered version of the 1914 ek1.

no problem! the patent mark on your disc probably pertains to the threading nut incorporated into the disc, as it reduces the amount of separate pieces to the cross (less to misplace), and was most likely cheaper to produce.

another unique characteristic of these crosses is the placement of the silver hallmark on the back frame of the cross itself--these marks are found close to the base of the thread post. the retaining disc is made of silvered brass

here are a couple of examples from my collection to include in this thread
