    Hi Robert, it is a fake. Note the inner rounded corners to the frame.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I agree with Ade that it's a fake. I believe it is based upon a Juncker, certainly the dates are a very close match to this maker's RKs. The suspension loop atop the frame is also closely modelled on the Juncker style. However, the frames are certainly not from Juncker. It's a very good copy, made to deceive and to the casual observer it might be considered to be good but closer inspection and comparison to originals show it to be what it is - a good fake.
    If it was an original I would be very concerned that the cross was being offered for sale seperately from it's ribbon and case. Why on earth would anyone split up a set like this if genuine?
    What is the price being asked Robert?
