    If in doubt mate and you can get your money back then it's the right thing to do.

    I am pretty sure that the cross hat Richard posted is a fake.
    This cross just started showing up this summer. The hinge,
    pin,catch setup was the giveaway but the cores don't look
    right either. The crown is just a bit different from any others
    seen untill now. The cores almost look too good. I am guessing
    that they are stamped and not cast (I know--some originals are
    stamped) The core coloring is off also IMO. It does not quite
    match the painted cast OR the blued sheet steel of period pieces.

    Most of us have all seen the notorious "Latvian fake" and these
    remind me of the Latvians very much.

    Hi Chaps, here's my latest EK1. It's a fine quality convex type sadley without any maker or silver marks; but with plenty of honest wear & character, Cheers, Richard.

    Hi Oradour, sounds like you've picked up some nice pieces. If it's any consolation I also had a TR EK2 made by K & Q (65 marked) with ribbon & maker marked packet in the same post as the EK1 today. It's a bit difficult to stop my collection expanding. A common problem I with most collectors I bet!!! Cheers, Richard.
