    The screw back, now I've had a better chance to look at it I would call an original cross. The Souval EK1 has a few questions. The frame is a Souval, the core possibly an Orth or possibly postwar? The pin is either a replacement or the whole thing has been fabricated since May 1945. I hope Fabri sees this thread and can give his opinion.

    nick yes my pleasure will get more pics some point today connection a bit slow but will post, and would be good to hear about the sb although a wish you could see it in person enamel looks new when i bought it you could tell straight away,

    stewy no problem will get pics at some point today as well

    adrian i thought souval was odd looking but why would it have been put together with different pieces? also any opinions on the name? either way its all interesting and has a few questions that i wouldnt know where to start

    Souval and Orth manufactured EK1s using pieces made by the other company, therefore it is common to find Souval frames and an Orth core. Many makers of EKs did this, it is not unusual. Juncker and Wachtler & Lange did it, Steinhauer & Luck supplied frames to several other companies.

    It is also possible to find original EKs and other badges with a name scratched in the back. It is also possible to find fakes with names and dedications engraved or scratched on the back as the fakers seek to make things more believable.
