    Could you get some pics of the catch & hinge? And the makers mark stamp on the pin? If is too small to get a pic of,can you see what it says. Stewy S

    All three look okay to me, I've seen EK's aged like this before.

    just figured it out with a magnifying glass...
    the number stamped on the outside of the neadle is "4"

    maybe this can help you further

    thx

    Looks like your EK1 is an honest Steinhauer & Luck, Ludenscheid.

    Haven't seen a double marked pin yet, but have seen them with "4" on pin and "L16" under the clasp. Clear close up photos are definitely needed.

    thanks for all your thoughts

    so, like tom said:
    the 4 is indeed on one side of the neadle, a very clear stamp although small, but profound

    on the inside of the neadle, is also something engraved, also very tiny or rather blurred, and my camara can't focus on it

    but anyway, thanks for everybodys opinions.. it's still not 100 procent clear if it's real or not. I did do some carefull cleaning on it and a lot of dirt and oxidation came off

    hello

    we need to see the marks on the pin
    whit that its an easy spot to say good or not
    not that the 4 and L/16 dont help but we need to see the way it is diced/made
