    It has been bought to my attention that this EK for sale in the classifieds is a fake. Can it be discussed? I am not a awards collector just buckles.

    Hi Ben. Looks like a once piece cross. I'll let Nick or Adrian say for sure but probably not one I would buy.

    I think you may be right Todd , these are not my thing but I cannot see a join/gap between the core and the frame. Also the back looks like it has had a touch over by some wire wool.Could the seller post us a nice close up of the side of the frame? It would be interesting to see if there is a joint! Leon.

    It is indeed a fake, and appears to be one-piece...51 (Eduard Goeriach u. Soehne, Gablonz) did not produce EKIs...
    cheers, Glenn
