Default 1870ek2

Hi,

The attached 1870 EK2 is currently on eBay.de by a seller (furchtlosundtreu14) that has items I would not touch (at least the pinback items, most of which I looked at), including this cross.

For me, it's a repro. The inner corners of the frames are ROUGH, the beading looks worn/flat in places but the (?spray) paint looks unworn. Is it a variation of the broken crown seal type, something new or just something I haven't picked up on before?

Regards
Mike

Definitely a fake, but one I haven't seen before.

I stay away from any auction where the bidders are hidden.
