    Another recent addition. This makes #3!

    And a huge,sincere "Thank you!" to moderator "oradour" (aka Steve) for all of his generous assistance with acquiring my three crosses, one of which came from him. His knowledge of 1957 awards is impressive, to say the least. Thank you, Steve!

    Very nice!

    What time frame does a 2nd core C-frame sit?

    Glenn, from around 1960 on, there are hybrids from around that time, when St u L were using up old parts, i.e. a "C" frame with a first core, and I am sure the "B" and "C" frame production ran together at that point (for a very short time) until the parts bin (stamped "B" frames) ran dry .....I have such a cross in my collection.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thanks Steve and Glenn. I was going to do a group shot today but the rain moved in so I was not able to get the pics taken. Hopefully in the morning I can and will post them.

    Now I need a first pattern core.

    Glenn, yours looks like a "B" frame, but to confirm can you provide a better image (no glare) of the frame and suspension eye....if the eye dips into the frame its a "C"......... if it sits on top it is a "B" !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Sorry, this shot is quite glary too (damn these minty awards! ) But it does appear that the ring is not 'dipping'?
