    Default EK 2 mm128 Real or Fake?

    I have been burned a few times with EKs lately so I hope this one is real. It also came with documents and a packet. Everything looks good to me but I am still a novice and still learning. any opions would be great. Also, can anybody translate the document?

    Hi Doomula , i`m afraid i don`t like this ! , imo, it looks to be constructed of a single piece of metal , and the suspension ring attachment looks incorrect , also , although this is not necessarily a pointer to authenticty , a bad hand painted coat has been applied . Also i am very sceptical about the stamp on the issueing document , i would pass on this example !

    cheers Al

    Actually Al, if you look at the last photo in post #1 you can see the seam line between the two halves.

    Hi there,i really don't like the EK packet. John Brandon knows more of these than me. At the very least it's not original to the EK. I'll do some digging on the doc for you. Stewy S

    I suspected the document and the packet wasn't original to the EK, but I still hope its real.
    I found a pic of a EK mm128 on another site would you like to see it it looks the same.
    I have found some other examples of the document but none with the stamp mine has or the two signatures,could it be a fake.
    Is it common to find fake documents?
    Does the EK look good to you?
