Iīd say itīs a Raptor. The best of all EK1 spangen fakes. I used to have one too.
So your saying it's a fake spange?
Itīs an outstanding copy of Schickle spange. From obverse, it is almost unbeatable for beginner (and even for intermediate), but reverse tells the story. Different silhouette of wreath (and of head as well), slightly different pin and (for beginner this is the most visible feature) the different angle of wings cut at inside corners (near the head). Original Schickle has sharp angle (letīs say 75-80 degrees), Raptor has right angle (90-95 degrees). As seen on my pic.
Great comparison---Thank you for that.

I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
I was able to return the spange and I got my money back.
The guys is right this is a fake
