    Default Imperial EK, Repro???

    Hello Gents

    Could I have any opinions on this please, I purchased it several years ago, I seem to be discovering quite a few replicas and fakes in my collection...mostly thanks to the forum and its members, just wondering where this one stood as Im not too "genned up" on EKs.

    Many thanks

    Here is the reverse, a friend of mine who knows a little more about gt war medals told me that if it rattled it was probably genuine, there is about 0.5 to 1mm of play between the rim and the centre.

    Thanks

    hi

    if it rattled doesnt mean it is oke
    see the third reich insignas the ek2 and ek1 and even the knightscross are reproduced whit 3 pieces so that doenst mean mutch now

    but its a shame that the ring and ribbon are missing

    i`ll keep it on a nice oke piece
    as the detail in the rim should be clearly visible but it has quite some damadge

    non the less a nice piece of history

    cheers mate
