    Default I need some opinions on this EK2

    Hello All,
    now that I am back on track apart from the bundle of 1st and 2nd War EK2s plus an EK1 I had dropped in another little collection of stuff from another single source.
    It consisted of some odd bits of memorabilia.
    There were a couple of EK2s.
    I have pictured it here.
    My concern is the way the swastika and dates look to have some serious defects going on with them.
    I have a gut feeling that it is good but a bit of reassurance would be appreciated if you could cast your eyes over the pictures
    All the best

    Thank you for your replies men.
    I too have a feeling about it...Mine is that it is a good cross as it came with a bundle of other nice pieces.
    I am just wondering if the vet picked it up post war as a piece of memorabilia to add to his collection and it is in fact a dud!

    Best regards

    Hello helmetone
    (Looks like a horrible one piece fake)
    thank you for all your comments/
    The cross is a soldered frame with Iron (magnetic) centre.
    It was part of the big bundle of crosses and I had it down as a dubious one....still it was free so no worries there.

    All the best
