    This is a cross by Rudolf Souval as the beading is indicative of his work. The rounded inside beading by the swastika and the bird's feet at the external corners of beading. My only concern with this is that from the photos it looks like the swastika does not stand proud of the core quite as much as it should. It could just be the quality of photos.

    Unless my eyes deceive me, I see rust in the center. That means it is iron...it has to be magnetic. I can see the evidence of a seam on the edges, and it looks fine. The seam is not supposed to be crisp and well defined as the solder would have been filed and buffed down to minimize visibility. Personally, I don't see anything wrong with it.
    I concur

    Always good to see an old thread make it's way to the surface again! It's a Souval cross as Tom says.
