    Oh dear...
    It looks to me like the 'Stuttgart Fake' has reared it's ugly head again.
    Never heard of a marked '20' before.

    Sorry for the bad news. Can you return it?

    Regards - Danny

    Can anyone elaborate on the Stuttgart Fake, please? It's a first for many of us, I'm sure...
    This is one of the more convincing fakes I've seen...
    cheers, Glenn

    Hello Glenn,

    These are a recent fake (as in the last few years). As far as I am aware, they were first brought to attention by Daniel on WAF. He spotted some of them for sale at a market in Stuttgart and photographed them.
    When they first appeared they had a 'hump' at the top of the frame very similar to the one seen on genuine Deschler crosses, but later versions have been found without this hump - like the one Gwar posted here. They also seem to have attempted to copy the distinctive cornices found on Souval crosses, but have not quite managed it. To me, I believe that their main giveaway is the very wide bead step combined with the Souval-esque corners.

    They are appearing everywhere lately and many collectors have been fooled - as seen in the picture below, they are even appearing as battle damaged relics!!

    Regards - Danny

    Here's a previous thread discussing them:
