    I think it 's an original Orth but pics are really bad.. normally they are with a non magnetic core when found with this back set-up.

    P.S. parabéns, grande Barça !

    Is that an Orth core with a Souval frame Fabri?

    The frame certainly looks Souval

    Hi Adrian
    yes, for 2 reasons: 1 - fine swaz and date are typical Orth (but date is hard to see). 2 - Souval never used this back set-up for their contemporary crosses but Orth used them.

    Dear Gibello, when we say orginal it means pre-1945 alias WW2 period.

    Fabri

    I checked this cross in Dietrichs book and the date and pin set up is exactly as you say, an Orth. My only concern with this cross is the thin swastika.I know Orths have a fine swas but this looks too thin IMO
