    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    You are correct, it is a reproduction. While the pics are dark, I can see the suspension ring is incorrect. The Oakleaves and Swords are also cast fakes which lack the detail of the originals.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I agree, it lacks the quality

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I can only agree with the others, not even close to an original in terms of quality and definitely not a converted EK2.
