At last ! an early 25 year Faithful Service Cross.
Gentlemen, I have at last obtained an early 25 year Faithful Service Cross, frosted with polished highlights a St u L example I presume......although plenty of these are available both at renowned dealers and E-Bay, they were all late non polished highlight examples, not what I wanted ! But with patience, chance and luck I scored last week on E-Bay Germany and bought the example I show here for £7...Yes, £7 !!!
I can now complete the set of these types of crosses.
Prost ! Steve.

Very nice sparklers Steve!
Very nice set in superb condition. They appear as if they were minted yesterday.
