    Hey gang! Well, the bug just kept bitting! Had to get at least one.....(that's my reasoning and I'm sticking with it!). Anyhow....very happy with this one. Nicely marked and in great condition! Now I just need to find a tunic to put it on! L/15 marked for Otto Schickle....

    Thought I'd share with you guys......I have to say: I'm liking it.....this could get dangerous! hahahaha

    Thanks guys....but I got some bad news: looks like it's one of those high quality "Floch" reproductions. I was floored as I thought it was good. No probs on returning the cross though - the seller is a stand up guy for sure.
    Just goes to show how good these repros are getting I guess.....I had no idea!!

    My thoughts exactly....but both EKhunter and Bill Garvy know their EK's....and they both agree that this one is not good......

    It's a hard game, the only "fault" I can see , if that's what you can call it are the corners in the centre around the swastika. That's the only red flag to me. I've attached a picture for comparison.

    That's a tough one

    What the flocks that

    Hey John! Yes, I've had another collector mention that as well (how it kind of looks like an "F").

    Cheers!

    Glad i'm not heavily into EK1's coz that would've got me. Maybe that's why i don't collect them. Stewy S

    The pin, hinge, clasp, and maker mark, "L15", betray its origins. There do exist L15 variants that some collectors regard as authentic, but the clasp and pin are quite different. We have all been "floched" before, for example. . .
