    It looks like a Steinhauer & Luck type cross. Definitely original.

    Really? I actually thought it looked sort of 'mushy'. I have a very similar one that I always assumed was a fake. Maybe I should dig that up...

    I would have second thoughts on it too. The corners of the arms look mushed. Maybe I just haven't seen enough S&Ls.

    Haha! Mushy and mushed!

    Come on guys, let's see what you mean by mushed?

    Are you seeing any areas that concern you?

    At first glance it looked to me like the details were a bit too blurry, almost as if the paint was too thick or if the beading had been pressed. The beading looked a little uneven and sketchy to me, too. It almost appears to be one-piece at first.

    I am not an EK expert, but these are just things that just stood out for me. Maybe I just need to change my contacts.

    Don't forget this is a scan and not a photo. The details do get blurred.

    Certainly original
