    Thank you.
    I dislike that cross as well.

    Any other opinion?

    Nick is correct, of course...I also notice that the "3" in the 1939 date is larger than the other numbers...
    cheers, Glenn

    L/58 is Souval and that is not a Souval frame or core.

    There is a possibilty of course that the disc doesnt belong to that cross but the beading is too wide which makes me think its a fake

    I don't recognise this date and beading combination and the L/58 screw disc just doesn't belong with the cross for the reasons Nick states above. This kind of artificial ageing looks like that found on Eastern European fakes.

    good comments all.

    nothing to add.

    Adrian brings up an important point about that rust "aging" and texture.

    Just for your information - that fake was sold in my country to some beginner for 160 euros... Now seller promised to pay back - we will see

    Thanks again for all comments!
