    Better images are needed Daniel. Ask for them, and if they arrive, post them on here. If they don't...forget it, as it can often be a sign that the seller is trying to hide something.

    Carl is correct. If he doesnt play ball then forget it. There are hundreds of other EK2's out there to choose from !

    Images in natural light without the plastic cover are required to make a concrete decision, and will enable the identification of the maker too. The beading doesn't look quite as sharp as I'd expect from a period EK, though better shots may well alter the clarity. General wear and ribbon look fine, but again, better images will help.

    It stands a chance, but we really need much better pics as Carl said.
