Fake 1 Piece EK2

Article about: With the new pics I think I'll climb off the fence now and agree it's a fake. Out of curiosity, can you bend it with finger pressure?

    Can it be an unmarked Gottlieb & Wagner, Idar-Oberstein?

    Tom, are you sure it isn't a three piece cross that has had the core repainted and therefore the gap between frame and core is blocked with paint?
    Adrian, I'm as sure as I can be. There is no movement on the core, no evidence of there even being a gap, non magnetic core. I don't know what else to say?
    If you guys feel it's good, then so be it. I'm selling it for my friend, but was going to sell as a repro, but if it's real what value?

    I really can't make my mind up. It does look good and if it is a one piece its the best one I've seen.
    However, the surface finish does look quite rough as though it's been cast in sand and the obverse dates look poorly finished as if, if it was cast in sand, the sand mould collapsed slightly. The ribbon is definitely fake and there is one too many ribbon rings.

    I took some more pics in the sunlight. These should show something one would expect to see on a casting......., but first some overall views.

    Now, what we first thought were pitting in the core looks more like someone scratched the layer of varnish that someone applied to the cross to make it look more aged....very apparent on the dates.
