    Default EK2 real or fake? please help!

    Hi guys- trying to figure out if these are fake. I suspect the brighter one of being fake, but could be pleasantly surprised. The brighter one's ribbon ring is marked "24." The one with more patina has no markings. (Couldn't get camera to focus enough to show the '24').

    The bright one doesn't seem to be of two piece construction. The one with more patina does have a seem running around the frame.

    (the ribbon on the bright one was purchased separately, and could be fake too)Click image for larger version.

    Are there any extra markings on the suspension ring of the '24'?

    Both are good and the '24' look great, nice remains of frosting comparing well against the patina on the frame.

    As Danny says, a reverse view of the other would be good to see please.
