Default EK1 by KO marked and .800

Picked this beautiful piece up at the SoS. Came with it's original box.
Wasn't nothing I was seeking for because I'm not a WWI EK collector, but sometimes certain pieces just speak to me.

A beautiful piece all around and silver marked too.

I am not 100 % sure but i think both of your pieces are fakes. The case could be a piece for a WW2 IC.

Oh no, I truly hope it's not fake.

Hope others chime in on this cross/box set.

I'll give it the rest of the day then contact the dealer I bought it from tomorrow to discuss the possibility of a return.

i ve never seen a KO piece with such a core.

But i quit collecting IC since a couple of years.

I also do not know a KO + 800 of the 1st class.

I only know them of the 2nd. - A KO 800 2nd class was my first IC in 2003.

I still have it.

Sad to say that is indeed a fake. Please check out this thread----

Unfortunately the cross and case are fakes as others have stated. The cross is a cast of an original with new (and incorrect) marks.

I do not own one but I have seen (one) that I believe to be original.
