    Default Cased EK1 for Review - plus a Luftwaffe Ground Combat Badge and Kriegs

    Hi All,
    I am being offered the following items as part of a group via a person who contacted me through an ad I have on Craigslist. I'm fairly certain all of the items are modern reproductions however would like somone with more knowledge to confirm.

    The details on the Luft Ground and Kriegs Sub badges are very soft and consistent with other modern day reproductions I've seen.

    The EK1 I'm not sure of. Again, I have no knowledge of how to easily spot a fake and don't actively seek these items out so any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    All bad.........

    The EK and case almost had me, but it looks like a cast
    one-piece, with a vinyl covered case.
    Regards,

    You are correct...The top right corner you can see that it is solid. Thanks again!

    It does have a nice age to it, but then again it could easily be a fake from the 70's...

    The frame is pitted and uneven. As well, at the corners where the arms
    of the cross meet is strange - they should be cut deeper.
    Regards,

    The EK1 doesnt look like any maker I know, and as the guys say its poor quality construction! Any chance of a shot of the reverse please?
