    That's a bad one.
    A good general rule of thumb with these critters is if it's not of three piece construction steer clear. I do believe there are exceptions but this theory works in 95% of cases. Also compare the attachment device with good examples, there are plenty of examples on the forum for comparison.
    Steer clear of this one mate.
    All the best

    Oops, sorry, for some reason I thought it was a WW1 cross, after I posted pics I saw my mistake. I'm sure you can find original examples here on this fine forum.
