    Default EK1, any chance of id from poor picture?

    I now it's a really bad picture, am trying to get the higher res shots.

    Can any one tell if it's real? the guy received it as a present and has no idea himself and wouldn't like to ask the giver.

    Excellent news, thanks Nick.

    It is a Souval but whether it was made before May 1945 is a bit of a judgement call.

    I'm not keen on it being wartime produced from the look of the reverse. The blobs of solder and the finishing of it don't give me a good feeling. I personally don't like the overal 'look' of the piece.

    Others may disagree but as I said, an individual judgement call and I wouldn't be happy with it in my collection.

    Um, thanks for that Adrian, I have now asked for a side view from the left hand edge of the reverse to see if that will shed any more light on manufacture.

    Would like to hear from anyone else, as from what I can see, it may not be a Souval then as that seems questionable, (there are how many makers?) and there's a solder spat on the back, which considering they did most of the soldering by hand (is it possible?).

    It looks like a 3 part construction and has a magnetic centre.

    Hey, come on guys, have to question it.

    Not so long ago something was said to be genuine only to be dismissed by others and then the same person that said yes. It can work both ways.

    But, if I have what I think is compelling evidence either way then I will confirm to my other party.
