You can put a closeup of the date 1939 ?
sorry, I see many red flags in this.
maybe I'm wrong.
you expect more opinions.
what red flags do you see?
One piece, unrecognisable hardware, and there is no such maker as 50
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
It might do for a re-enactor or a display where the insignia are just dressing for other items.
Sorry, but I think most of us have items like this in a little "box of doom and lessons learned" amongst our collections.
The way to benefit is to take in why it is duff and add that to your knowledge base
PS here is one from my own "hall of shame" picked up in the late '70s when I knew far less than was good for my pocket!
(Check out the crazy "round three")
we ALL get caught sometimes.
very bad ,sorry
I'm looking for EK II 1939: B.H.Mayer: A and B core,mm L/18 and schinkel type ,,,EK1 Round-3 with Deschler frame and Friedrich Sedlatzek pin and SB variant
Hi Nick,thanks for the info..how I am able to tell its one piece? Also i'm now a little suspicious about the rest of the so called genuine items I have...this EK was purchased off a member here,can you give me your thoughts on this one also please.
