    Default HELP EK2 Real or Fake??????

    So here is a EK2 that I bought at a market. I have looked at all the things that would make it a fake and everything that I look at says that it is real. The 35 ridges on the braid, the seam on the side, the magnetic center, and the seperate pieces that you can slide a piece of paper under the corner. Let me know what you guys think??????

    the certificate to me is a good copyed fake where they forgot to stamp the corner also i can't see how a certificate which is usually either thrown away or stuffed in tunic pocket or given to parents to be bombed on by allies in germany has survived so well without a single crease i like the cross but hate the certificate

    The certificate does have a stamp in the corner it is just very faded

    if it does have a stamp and its that faded that you can barely see even the circle why has the rest of it not aged the same
    imo the words are two bold similar to a computer printing

    This is true about the stamp. Do you think that maybe the ink was different with the stamp and the printing of the official award? Just a question.
