    Default EK 1 by Hermann Aurich

    Hi Chaps.
    Had this EK1 in my collection for a few years now. It's marked 113 for Hermann Aurich and isn't magnetic. Should it be magnetic? I know there are variations that are not, is this one of them? Or is it a complete fake?
    Would appreciate your thoughts.
    Cheers
    Mark

    Hi Mark, this does not give me a good feeling. Is it three part construction? It looks one part from the pics? The paint overlapping onto the beading does not inspire confidence either with me. But wait for the EK boys to comment.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Cheers Ade. How can i tell if it's 3 part construction or not? It looks solid and weighs 27.5 grms. Which is a lot heavier than my L/13 screwback variation that only weighs 15grms.

    The edge will look like a "sandwich", with very fine lines which define the back, core and front.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello Mark
    I 'm very sorry but your cross is fake. Aurich just produced EKIIs, no EKIs. But yes there were few manufacturers that produced EKIIs and EKIs with a non magnetic core.

    Fabri is correct, Aurich didn't make EK1's and as a side note, there are EK2's marked '113' that are fake but very very close to the originals.
