    Default Thoughts on this EKII with ribbon and envelope...

    I'm looking at purchasing my first "cased" EKII and would like to get everyone's thoughts on this, mainly the envelope. The cross and ribbon look fine to me, but if you feel otherwise please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Hi Dyzner

    Medal looks ok from those angular shots. What is the number on the ring ? Not sure about the packet as the print looks rather new

    Hi Nick. Thanks for the quick reply. I'm posting another (unedited) shot of the packet. My photo editing software tends to modify the color and crispness, which may attribute to what you're seeing. Let me know if you still have the same opinion about this original shot...

    Nick, I just requested a shot of the back side from the owner. I'll post it as soon as I get it (hopefully soon). The number on the ring is "27".

    Yes I would say your cross is a good one ! Here is my '27' to compare

    The cross is good.. Very easy to spot the #27.
    But I'm not sure of the packet...

    You should see the back of the packet, there must absolutely be the manufacturer's name (and city) printed. Also the seam must be on the right or at the bottom only.
    Unfortunately I got a fake packet recently, where the seam is on the left. Hope it'll be OK for you!
