    Hi Ger, sorry but I think this is a fake. Keller didnt make EK's

    i think this might be a l59 maybe miss stamped?

    imo this is a l59 early cross with the bump on the first nine and rounded inner corners but the pin on the back and possibly the catch are replaced?

    thats just going from the useful links section

    Not liking this one either. The swas looks very thin and the paintjob doesn't look right if you look at the edges imo.

    I'm struggling to find a match for this one. The inner corner beading is not like anything I've seen before, the very shallow swastika is also a cause for concern as is the reverse hardware. The pin and hinge is very unusual so I'm thinking it's a fake.
