    Default L/11 Deumer EK1, opinions please.

    Hey guys, i have been offered this EK1 for 120, i don't think that the price is too bad. My only concern is that the EK1 could be a copy, i think that the detail on it is ok and has been well used; however, i think i can spot glue residue on the top left of the obverse of the cross.
    Thanks, Glen.

    Doesnt look too bad from a distance, but maybe some close-ups would aid those better informed about EKs. Especially pics of the trouble areas.
    My 'vast' experience is limited to one (1) Deumer.
    But someone will be along soon.
    Here a few pics of my (unmarked) Deumer for comparison.
    Just got these: EKs, Bayo and more

    What do you think Glen? How does it check out compared to other Deumer EK1s? Is there anything you like/don't like about the cross?

    Not in the best nick, but a good one. Well worth 120

    The hardware looks to be correct for this cross. It appears to have had a hard life, or well worn. Not sure what you see to be glue residue. Here are photos of mine to compare.

    The 'glue' could just be old gunk ..... or DNA. Plenty of gunk on many of these EKs.

    Hey thanks for your help guys, i think i will go for it.
    @ Adrian, I thought that it looked good as the detail was good especially on the swastika. I compared it to a couple of other Deumer Ek1s and the pin setup looked fine. I mainly posted it for a second opinion and i was just concerned about the 'gunk'...
    Thanks, Glen.
