    I've uploaded the photos Ilya, it's always best to post them so they're here for future reference. When the item gets sold, the link will be removed and we won't have a thread subject to see.

    The photo's aren't the best but it looks ok. I would ask the seller for better pics.

    these pictures are a little rough.

    that having been said, from what's provided here i don't see any glaring issues.

    i'd like an angled shot because it almost looks as though this cross have been vaulted? also, the catch is a little strange. it may just be bent or something. still, it's something i'd like to see more of. this isn't necessarily because i think the cross is bad. from the pictures provided it looks ok. i'm just used to seeing more and better shots before i put money down on one of these.

    may i ask what the price is? these crosses are common and can be had in an huge range of conditions. therefore, this is one cross that you have the luxury of time and opportunity when buying.

    here is the back of mine (note the catch and difference in apparent surface contour which may be from the example you are considering having been vaulted):

    Looks like a good one to me also. I have had a couple of these crosses and one of them had the same slightly vaulted style - not how it left the factory. The bending of the arms is quite apparent towards the centre of the cross. But it is a feature found on many crosses, causing it to sit tighter on the uniform and as a result, is less prone to snagging.
