    Both are original, the EK1 is marked '15' for Friedrich Orth of Vienna. Orth and Souval had a close working relationship and mixed and matched parts from each others factories but this one doesn't appear to have any Souval parts. There is a small dot on the frame at the top edge of the 12 o'clock arm where the beading meets the 'step'. This is a locating point for a suspension ring if the frame was going to be used for an EK2. I don't recognise the pin on the back but as Orth also sourced parts from other manufacturers it could come from anyone of them.
    The KVK I can't put to a maker (might be S&L?), made of zinc and with a good amount of finish on the obverse.

    From the photos, all look to be original items and if you can get a good price, why not try for all of them!

    Itīs a lot of awards. For sale on the E-stand on WAF. I bought only a NSDAP 15 y medal. The EK1 was sold before I could buy it.
