    Great cross.
    I am 99% positive that this is an unmarked AWS
    type2 cross.

    I say unmarked because it does not have the typical
    AWS logo stamp. The asterisk (*) mark was used
    in Austria to show that that part was made of Non-precious
    metal.

    Congrats again on a nice cross.

    BTW--it's nice to see one that has all it's parts.
    for some unknown reason, a lot of the AWS screwback
    crosses seem to be missing the back plates.

    Greg,
    Thanks for the eduction on the * mark for "non precious" material. Little did they know back then that the non precious material in its current form has become "precious" in our eyes! I did not know the meaning of the *. I have seen some with the back of the cross marked as well. I gather that is to indicate that it was made without silver. At first, I wanted to see the * on the back of the frame but now I appreciate it's implied "precious" content. Thank you for posting your 2nd type AWS! When I first collected as a teenager many years ago, I passed on Imperial crosses. Greg you have assisted greatly in my evaluation of these beauties and inspired me to be the custodian of many of them.
    Best,
    Anzel
