    Hello Stefan you dont see these very often, ive just compared to an origional and they do not match at all. Unless there are different types, on the known origional i looked at it has silver metl? like ribbing around the outer and inner edges and for the date also the swaz and backing are all black. So i would be cautious but lets wait ad see. As i havent seen very many of these

    I think you are right, just looked up some examples as well and it doesnt even hold a single feature similar other than the shape...

    All the best,

    Cloth EK1s are as rare as the proverbial rocking horse s**t and authenticating them is difficult at best. Based upon the images above I would not be happy to call it original. The execution is far too poor for a prestigious award, the outlines aren't clean and it has an overall fuzzy look which I'm sure wouldn't be acceptable.

    i concur. bogus. does not in any way resemble those rare originals.

    incorrect in materials, workmanship and construction.
