    Default 1914 Enamel Cross W/Ribbon... Patriotic?

    Hello there.

    I recently came across this cross, and couldn't turn it down at the price they were asking. It looks to me like it is a WWI Patriotic cross, is that correct? I have never seen another like this one, and it is completely different than my pinback patriotic cross. It has a smooth back like a 1st class cross, but without the pin. Face is enamel. Looks like it is fairly old, don't think the chain is original but not sure.

    Btw, sorry that's the only picture I have of it. Any closer and the camera has a horrible glare, the flash cannot be turned off.

    The hanger is typical of those used on period watch FOBs.
    The cross looks to be an original Ek ribbon but the cross itself does not.
    The cross is most likely as you guessed, a patriotic piece. I would have
    liked to seen a better detailed cross hanging from it. That piece (the cross)
    just doe not quite look right to me.
