    I'm not liking the core or the reverse hardware and the makers mark is completely new to me.
    Do the edges of the cross look like they've been apart and re-soldered? On originals the edges of the cross are neat, clean and crisp and you might find file marks where the cross has been finished.
    Can you post some pics of the edges please?

    No chance to be original IMO.
    Bad details on front and inedit back set up.

    sorry no more pics available as i dont own the piece, was thinking of buying but detail on front didnt look very crisp thats why i am seeking second opinion. seller says the maker mark is L/16 but looks nothing like it.

    In that case save your money and move on! There are many original and unquestionable pieces on the market. Glad you posted before spending out on it though.

    From your photos the "L/16" appears to be disposed upside down and stamped horizontal to the pin. On this example the maker mark is in vertical disposition to the pin. The "L" is quite faint. Also note the hinge, pin, & clasp configuration are quite different
