    I don't like it. Maybe some better closeup pics could tell more.

    That I believe is a Floch. Look at the "3" in 1813?

    Of course I have been wrong before on these

    IMO fake, but not a Werstein for sure.
    Here is an original to compare: http://www.lakesidetrader.com/pics/M-1627d.jpg

    Better close up pics of the obverse beading at the inner corners to the hakenkreuz would help.
    Also the numbers on both sides.

    Although I don't claim to be an expert I believe I can see at least two areas of the ribbing that raise concern. As circled in red in the below image I think I can see points where the ribbing overlaps which from what I have read is indicative of a Floch reproduction.

    Additionally in blue I believe I see another two areas where the inner corners appear rounded and again from my research this can be indicative of the dies Floch used.

    Is the '1939' set a little low also?

    It would certainly help to have clearer closeup shots of these areas.

    As always, I stand to be corrected.

    In my opinion it 's not original, but I would like to have it in my hands to have certainty.

    Thank you for your comments. I raised this cross for discussion as I am certain this is a Floch produced EK2.
    Clearer photos would help but I'm sure I can see the similarities from the images provided.

    I stand by my first assumption...........You've been "Floched"
