    Default EK1 soldier bust -Is this a fantasy piece?

    I have never seen one of these before. It is approx 6" tall, but has no makers marks at all, which raises suspicion as to authenticity. Has anyone seen this before?
    Looks to be bronze like material.

    Hi Al, cannot say I have actuall seen this design before?

    One thing to bear in mind is this has the 1939 EKI as part of the design, which would place it late 1939 at best. Most of these trophies etc were pre war in design and manufacture. During the war, restrictions on the use of metals would limit production of this type of thing.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I had a feeling it was post war due to the lack of any makers markings, but it does look rather nice, and would sit well with the small EK collection I have. It is priced as a non original item so I won't have much invested in it. Thanks again guys.
    Cheers,
    Al
