probebly bad EK1

Article about: That is good news! Well done Paul. It's nice when a dealer can accept someone telling them an item on their site is a fake and takes steps to do something about it. There are some decent one

    Hello Guys ,Could you have a look at this Ek1 discribed by the seller has a single piece iron cross made of bronze/brass,595 stamped on pin ,he says this type of cross is usualy attributed to the kreigsmarine.I think it,s a repro what do you think ,pics are not greatest but i think you can see some detail.There is a EK on this forum which i have seen in the past the same has this discribed has a repro .Paul

    Yep your correct as i also believe it to be bad. Firstly the numbers on the front of the cross ("1939") are in the wrong style. In addition I am not familiar with the number on the back of the cross and I also think that this is a bad sign as it should contain a makers number and I do not think that there was a maker with the number 595.
    Thanks, Glen.

    I've never seen a needle-hook like that on an original EK1...And as previously mentioned, the 1939 is way off the mark from anything I've seen or have in my collection...
    Cheers, Glenn

    I think you should tell the seller he's talking rubbish and educate him!
