Hi Jack,

It is the other way around.

Left is a good Carl Forster & Graf
Right is a old and common fake, but dealers still offer them for sale all the time.

Kind regards, Thomas

I agree with Thomas.
The left one is considered good but as it turned up on the market in large quantities everyone was very suspicious.

The right one is deceiving people since the eighties and comes often in company of a '333' marked (fake) EK2.
There seems to be a French connection but I don't blame them in public.
A trench war can easily last very long in France.

So one good and one for lessons learned box!

Regards,
Martin
