    Default EK1 - Good one or and old Repro?

    I got this EK1 awhile back and its sat in my WW1 collection ever since. I have always had a problem with the font of the 9 in the date as well as the markings on the back, as I cant match them to anything. What do you guys think? A real EK1 or just an old fake with patina?

    Cheers

    Hi

    Sorry but in my opinion it is fake. The frame is massive compared to originals.

    Thanks

    Why on earth would you put a "Silver" marking on the back of an EKI you are trying to fake?

    That's exactly what I was about to say. Germans are not known for writing Silver when they mean Silber.

    That's kind of like this one------

    Someone took the time to make a mold and cast a bunch of one piece copies
    of a three piece fake 1870.
