Article about: So we do actually have a genuine cross. The pin is not a normal K&Q pin which will affect the value. I don't mind a replaced pin, you hardly see the backs of these crosses on display any

    So we do actually have a genuine cross. The pin is not a normal K&Q pin which will affect the value. I don't mind a replaced pin, you hardly see the backs of these crosses on display anyway, so if the price is right I don't see anything wrong with adding it to a collection. A replaced pin is part of the history. This looks good and might well be period.

    The originality of this cross was never in doubt. Everyone to their own Adrian. I personally would steer clear of these.

    Hi all,

    Maybe I'm wrong but when I commented it there were more pics of that cross with close in to the frame showing brass coming out as for the pin. Was the post changed or corrected?

    Not by me, maybe maxrsx changed it?
    Sometimes the wear to an award will expose the base metal as can be seen on the pin.

    Not from another cross IMO as I cant find a pin set up like that anywhere. Could be something that was fashioned post war

    Goodmorning Adrian!

    Even the numbers looked a little different but that could be a prospective illusion... So frame from this producer were in brass silverplated?
