Spanish EK1 - what are your views?

Article about: I don't have a Spanish EK in my collection and this one has just caught my eye. I was always sceptical about them until I read about them in Dietrichs excellent EK1 book. I quote: ' The 250.

    Hi Nick,
    I have seen these and one was even given to me years before (it was a 2nd class and I ended up giving it away to a friend) As it was pointed put they still made these things into the 80's. I would invest very little in one and they fake these as well, or the Spanish are still cranking them out. I would sure have one of the guys on WAF that collects them check it out first.

    The neater examples are the much more rare Japanese versions.

    Hi Jody

    I have had I checked out on WAF and it appears to be Spanish made although the decade is not known. It certainly appears to be late.
    I have manger to get a price reduction so I have added it to my collection.

    Yes the Japanese version is extremely rare!!

    Hi Nick,
    That is good to hear and I am glad you had it checked. Some people get so excited about owning something that they do not consider the price. These are not bad if you got it at a fair price. I knew a guy that overpaid for a Spanish made EK 2nd Class and Eastern Front Medal and ended up almost halving what he paid for them.

    Regards,
    Jody
