    Default Ek2: maker marked 84

    Hello, gentlemen. This was my first EKII (and first medal, period) I picked up perhaps seventeen years ago. It was at a flea market in Heidelberg, Germany. Bought for forty Deutsch Marks, which, back then, was twenty bucks. Sadly, I did not do any more collecting after that until the all mighty euro appeared and these days I pick up a piece few and far between.
    My question: is it an original? It is not magnetic. It appears to have been cleaned. The number "84" or "34" is on the ring.
    Thank you for your input and your interest.

    Hi

    Sorry but in my opinion this EK2 is fake as far as I am aware the maker 84 never made EK2s.

    Thanks

    A shame, that. Well, twenty bucks down. Thanks for filling me in. I'll have to study this one seriously to recognize it in the future.
