    Actually, I do think this one is as advertised.

    Looks good Roger, I like the slightly mis-shapen look to it, the top arm is bent over to the left as you look at it from the front.

    Thank you all. I had not noticed the slight list to port on that top arm. I'll have to take a closer look and ensure that is not an artifact of the scanner.

    I think it's the cross Roger as it bends to the right on the reverse image........

    What an eye.

    0.5mm difference in height with the vertical arm being 43.75mm on the left (Obverse view) and 44.25mm on the right.

    The transverse arms are also angled slightly inward towards the top, with the width at the top of the arms at 43.30mm and the width at the bottom 44.21mm.

    I guess this one was made by Jacob Bengel the cross-eyed cross-maker

    I would like to see some more '44's for comparison. I have another on the way, can't wait to measure it, too!
