    The 1939 doesn't seem right to me, almost like there is no depth to the piece; it is lacking something. It also looks quite thin but maybe it is the angle of the photo

    im thinking a souval ?? but the core looks like it is a ground dug cross just doesnt match that shiny frame.

    lets see what the guys say

    Hi David,

    On the face of it, it looks like a good Souval but look a little closer and it doesn't look quite so good. My personal thoughts are that it is a post war made piece. Possibly wartime frames and a post war core. As n0valyfe points out, there isn't enough depth in the date. The frame material also doesn't look quite right although the pics are a little washed out.

    Considering how many EK1s there are about, I wouldn't take the chance, especially given Souval's reputation for post war production.

    I agree, in fact, I would run away from that one.
    The core detail is terrible, and I don't particularly like the quality of assembly either.

    I concur, I would not have given this one a second look
