    I don't think there was a "51" maker of EKI's. I think I read somewhere the "51" mark is a fake. Someone can surely confirm that here shortly.

    That´s correct - find information in WAF that maker with code "51" is not in the list of EK1-makers.
    Also, the seller of this cross is rather suspicious, some small-scale russian dealer...

    But anything about the cross - is it complete bullshit or not? No better pics, as usual...

    Hi Bruno. I believe it is bad - appears to be a one piece Cross........

    Hello Bruno, yes the guys are correct it is a known fake. There are no 51 maker marks on origional crosses.

    Cheers

    Indeed a fake one piece. This fake keeps popping up. If you do a search there are plenty of threads about it

    The MM looks different to the MM on my '51' marked Ostmedaille.
