Default AWS EK1 for review

Here is one I am unsure of. I didn't see a match to it posted. It is supposed to be an AWS. It is three piece construction and the pin looks like one AWS used. The odd things to me are how high the 1914 is towards the center of the cross and how the W and 1914 do not stand up very high compared to the beading. The pin functions extremely well and overall the assembly is very well done. I can return this if it bad.
