Default EK2 / 1870 for opinion

Hi,

a friend of mine would get to have your opinion of this EK2 / 1870.

The size of this cross is 40mm. Sorry for the low quality pictures it didn't receive better shots yet...

To me this is not one of the Nine Bead fakes, but i'm not a specialist on original/fake variations of the 1870 EKs.

See You

Vince

Hi Vince,
Sorry to say but your cross is indeed a fake. It is called a "9th Bead Fake"
It is characterized by the overly large 9th bead from the left in the sweat
band of the crown and also by the over/ under style of *8" in the date.
Original type A crosses have a flat style "8" with no overlap.

If you do a forum seach for "9th bead fake" you will find many threads
talking about this particular style of fake.
