    FWIW, I think the ribbon is a repro.

    That is not for me to say, there are others far more qualified than myself on these pieces. What is your opinion on your piece, what do you think? Have you used the search function to compare against previously posted examples?

    You might get some qualified advice from forum experts if you can demonstrate you have taken the time to assist yourself in this matter. You must appreciate that the forum is all too often treated as a type of free, on-line authentication service and as a result those who have built up knowledge over many years are often somewhat disinclined to impart that knowledge to every passerby.

    Okay Arzhang,
    here are my thoughts on the cross.
    I have never seen a cross marked 800 21 (Godet)
    Zimmermann made the RK and marked them up with L/21 for Foerster and Barth.
    It is possible that they also (Zimmermann) made crosses for Godet.

    Here is what I know of your cross?
    It is a known fake.
    It looks too new with an aged silver frame.
    It has a good quality finish.
    The ribbon looks good and could be manufactured on an old shuttle loom using rayon threads

    Would I add it to my collection?
    Yes but not for a lot of shekels.
    I think they used to retail out at anything from 100-900

    Cheers
    Saladin

    I have Heard of Godet crosses being marked 800 to the left and 21 to the right, but I have never seen one and would not trust one today if I did because of this. I do not like this particular cross and would not feel right purchasing it.

    Poor fake based on the Zimmermann design, nothing more.
