    It looks ok to me. The clasp has obviously been repaired which in my view supports the originality because I don't think this work would have been done to a fake?
    Your opinions would be appreciated

    It looks like a beat up W&L

    I would pass on this because of the poor state and spend a little extra on a better cross

    Agree with Nick on the maker but for me, if it were cheap enough, it might be a good representative example if your budget is tight.

    Thanks guys but unfortunately I think it'll be too expensive for its condition. I'm looking for a cheaper "representative" example until I'm more experienced but these seem to be difficult to find

    How much was the seller asking if you don't mind me asking?

    Update: I've bought the above badge for what I think is a crackin' price!
    Will put some better pics on when I can!

    Three pice construction with some damage to the top and repairs to the catch.
    I think it's a representative piece but for 55 in really happy with it!

    Could anyone give a little more info about the possible maker? It's been suggested that it could be W&L?
