    Well done Ralph! A fine example of the round '3' variant EKII. Many of them have rough cores but yours is a nice smoother cross.

    Nice score Ralph! A good 'bevelled edge' or 'thin' type round three cross! Here's mine to compare........

    Thanks Adrian! Nice example.
    Yours seems to have quite a bit of a die flaw on the bottom bead. Maybe a later example?

    Quite possibly Ralph but notice it only occurs on the obverse frame. I would take a reasonably educated guess they were made sometime apart from each other, put into stock, the person assembling the cross picked them at random from the stockpile and made the cross with one flawed frame and one not flawed.
    These little idiosyncrasies make the hobby all the more interesting!

    You are probably at least close, if not correct in your guess Adrian.

    Thats a very nice R3

    I personally think R3's are over priced but that said, a must for every collection !

    I agree with your comment Nick!
    Just had to wait until it felt right.
    Thanks,
