    Default EK 2, real or fake?

    Hi guys, recnetly i bought 2 EK's, one from ww1 and one from ww2. Need a id on this one. I think it's ok but i really like opinions from others. It's maker marked but not very clear. I think it's "KO". And what about the ribbon? It's a small version, real or fake? Maybe added later? The pictures i have taken are made under a desk lamp so the black looks a bit more shiney i must admit.

    I think the cross is good but the small pictures make it hard to be
    sure. The ribbon is obviously a bad fake.

    You can click on the photos for bigger ones Chopperman. Think i will replace replace the ribbon with a wider one. Looks much nicer i think.

    Good KO cross. Ribbon is probably new, looks like it wouldn´t pass UV test and it would better fit to some prinzen or miniature - if it was original, of course.
