Default EK2 marked 65 - Small Übergröße?

Hi all,

I need your opinion about this EK2 marked 65. You can see also how big it is.

Is this a good one or a fake?

Thank you very much.

Best Regards

Antonio

Yes, it's good Deschler's EK2.

The problem is this strange signature, not matching Deschler's cross.

Someone has drilled out the frame and added the ring and a 65mm ribbon ring to it.

Don't think so. It's common to see one side of the frame on a Deschler cross with a 'hole' like this one.
IMO a perfectly fine Deschler EK2 with a postwar stamp on the ring.

if you collect precisely EKs2 than it is too messed up cross. If you just want to have an ubergrosse in your collection than it is great cross indeed!

This may be true, because the ring does not look like it was exchanged.
