    OK on the EK1. I kinda thought that too...but wanted other opinions.. What about the Spange? That one looks more real to me than the EK1

    With these pictures it is clear to see the one piece EK1 is a fake, the sprang looks to be a fake but better images are needed.

    The EK1 is dreadful. I would also walk away from the Spange

    Tell the seller to jog on, both pieces are fake.

    OK! Thanks for the info. He also has a compass, aircraft bullets on a belt, some artillery shells and training bombs...I may just focus on those!

    Just for my own knowledge Adrian...how can you tell the spange is fake? I know the EK1 is only one piece...I had that thought when I saw it. But, I don't know on the spange

    For me, the date isn't right for a Deumer and also the makers mark is not one I'm comfortable with. I can't tell the details on the eagle but the two points I've mentioned would be enough for me to pass on it.
