    I'd suggest sending a message to Greg "chopperman" on this one-if anyone can make a solid judgement on these older EK's, it would be him !

    If it's good, 280 Pounds seems like a good deal - but Greg
    will know for sure.........

    Would love to but one of these early EK's but they seem a bit of a minefield unless you know what your doing. If it is original 280 seems a great deal.

    I think tjis one has a lot of possibility. I am away from my
    files right now so I can't do a real good check on it. Hopefully
    I can make it home tonight. But my first guess is it's a good one.

    IMO, this is an original 1870 cross made after
    the 1895. These later crosses, sometimes refered
    to as "Jubilee" crosses because many were made for the
    1895 Jubilee (a 25th anniversary cellebration of the victory
    in the 1870 war.)

    While not an "awarded" cross, they are still collectable.
    Remember, many, many soldiers who were entitled the
    1870 EK did not receive their crosses until after the war.
