    Unfortunately I usually tend not to profit...But help others that collect..
    I also do not like dealers that churn out "Profit" Based collecting.. I collect
    and pass on the items to fellow collectors...I recently sold a Ground Combat (Luftwaffe)
    badge to a fellow who was a collector...To insure this hobby stays healthy..
    When I first started collecting...Prices were moderate...Now it is the profit mongers that keep us hostage as collectors and history buffs alike...Maybe I'm old fashioned...Who cares....I do.......

    Regarding the 'Ubergross', does anyone else see that the 3 o'clock arm frame seems wider than the 9 o'clock arm frame?

    Good observation Glenn Danny's cross has the same feature though so i guess that's how it should be?
    I have never noticed this characteristic before.

    Many crosses can be found with different width frame edges. It's not an unusual occurrence.

    Here's a '125' from my collection where the left hand frame edge is wider than the right:

    And a Meybauer Schinkel where the top edges of the arms and top edge of the frame are all thinner than their opposites:
