    Hi

    I'm no expert but in my opinion it looks like a floch fake.

    I would wait for more opinions though.

    Thanks

    It looks like conversion was done very crudly.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    The date looks Meybauer IMO, but not sure. Anyway I wouldn't spent my money on it. There are much better EKs out there.

    The cross is original, as for the conversion - who knows? It looks crude enough to be a field modification but we will never find out. Unless the price is ridiculously cheap I would leave it and get a better example.
