    EKI - it is a fake, isn´t it?

    Hi folks, Found this EKI in the Internet. To me it is a fake as I never saw such kind of numbers and looks that the core was repainted (mayba a one-piece construction). Also the maker´s mark is uncommon (Deschler & Sohn). The pictures are not great but are everything I managed to get...

    Single bar with a paper tag

    Otto, Most of the medal bars with the maker´s mark that I´ve seen are sewn in the fabric that covers the back and also brings the city where the maker was located. For instance, "Godet, Berlin". I would say that it is the name of the awardee - which is also very uncommon. Nice medal! Douglas.

    Hi Otto, If I remember correctly, Diego has a medal bar which has the same long service medal. I will check if the ribbon is correct, but it looks OK to me. Douglas.
