    Sorry to say that it is a fake.
    The front frame looks like it may be an original 1914 frame
    but the core and the back and the pin are all bad.

    The backplate is obviously cast and not stamped and not silver.
    In picture #2 you can see on the 6 o'clock right hand outer corner
    how the lower half of the frame sticks out past the upper half.

    In the last picture, you can see how the back plate is much thicker than
    the front half of the frame.

    Besides that, there are no known examples of brass cored 1870s, or 1870
    ek1s with brass pins, no known examples of "W" marked 1870 Eks.
