    Thanks for posting Rory, you are absolutely correct, this is a fake EK1. The thin date and beading are instantly recognisable on these old and well known fakes. The cross is also made in one piece. You can find these with a variety of hinge/pin/catch configurations - all fake.

    Well spotted Rory. I've just taken a quick look at that site, and I am not overly impressed.

    Thanks guys yes its quite a bad fake, but what got me was the fact that they had a section for reproduction items, as well as origional and their items are over priced imo, i was going to go through all the items and see how many fakes i could spot. Good practice for anyone starting to collect.

    Cheers

    Hello guys yes have a look my main area of study is eks at the moment, so im not too sure on the other badges etc. but i saw a few with some red flags, like one of the spanges and one kvk1 with swords. So thats enough to put me off all together.

    Cheers

    Hello there,

    Another reason forums like these are a great tool to a collector. One bit of a red flag is the actual price of this specific EK compared to all of the others he has listed....as they say: if it's too good to be true.....
