    Hello Gents,
    Picked this up. I am no expert in them and I have few questions.
    My first question is who is the maker

    #2 the swastika on the obverse seems to have paint removed. It does not look this is recent but since it is below the surrounding parts of the badge this probably would not result from wear. It really makes it stand out but From limited experience I have never seen an EK1 with the swaz paint missing,
    I am thinking post war or done or owner did third during the war.

    #3The hardware on the reverse. appears the hinge was incorrectly applied or was repaired or done post war.

    I thank you in advance,

    Please check the core to see if it is magnetic. There are known non-magnetic core EKs. There are a couple in the classifieds right now as a matter of fact.
    I believe there is an Assmann/Zimmerman connection. This is also a known method of attaching the hinge. This can be found on a few different maker EK I's

    Sorry, but this cross has been messed with. Someone inserted a Souval/Schenkl core in a W&L frame.

    The hardware is also correct for a W&L.....

    This photo proves the EK has been apart.
