EK1 Boxes cunundrum

Recommended Posts

Hi all, a bit of advice or opinions please, I've got two EK1 boxes which I've had since the early 1970's, they came with two EK1's which turned out to be fake (One being the famous "Polish fake"), both were bought at different times from different sources, my question is what period are they likely to be?, I'm reasonably certain they are not WW1/WW2, but could they be early 57'ers?, both had on the underside something which has been scratched out, the one with the black interior does have white flock underneath but I've left it "As found", any thought appreciated,

 

regards

is it possible to take out the interior flocked bases which the crosses rest upon? sometime the interiors are marked, which could help determine era of production.

Hi I'll try one, I think the black lined one is loose

 

edit, just had a look at one, nothing much but a diagonal pencil line, traversing through the pencilled number 35, not much to go on

Are the metal parts (hinge and button) magnetic? Is the interior UV negative?

EKI cases should either marked 621KB or 2420DB under the insert.  Jim
