Can you post photo? The only EK1s marked L/56 for Funcke & Bruenninghaus I've seen had the mark on the pin, and it could run up or down, but not across.

Don't like the "65". Number style is different from the K&Qs I've seen in the past, especially the "6".

The mm on the L/56 doesn't look like the others I have seen? To me the numbers look to small. JMHO!

Hi Rod,I have nothing to compare the MM with.I think I'm going to pass on it as I don't want to take a chance until I know for sure it is a good one.Dutchman. cool

Dutchman. Here is a pic of the back of an L/56 IC1 with the makers mark running the same direction as yours.
