Article about: This one has me puzzled. I did think Meybauer like Nick but the dates don't match what I would know as a Meybauer and I've never seen an EK1 from this maker with a flat catch, they're usuall

    This one has me puzzled. I did think Meybauer like Nick but the dates don't match what I would know as a Meybauer and I've never seen an EK1 from this maker with a flat catch, they're usually round wire.
    Maybe Fabri can give you a better idea as he knows his EK1s better than most people!

    I agree, the numeral '3' had me puzzled too! It didnt match with my Meybauer

    Ok, then discard the manufacturer: Meybauer
    I think it is a EK Original? or is it a Fake?

    Hi guys
    the 2nd one is definitely a F.Orth.
    I add a pic that explain why.
    1 - typical date so it 's an Orth core.
    2 - typical bubble on frame so it 's an Orth frame.
    on back, surely it 's not a common set-up, because the catch.
