    Default EK2 1914 - Opinions please

    I have been offered this cross and I would like to add a nice 1914 EK2 to my collection of T.R crosses, but am unsure of this ones authenticity. There are a few things that put me off, but not really knowing these items I thought it best to ask the people in the know.
    Thank you. Please excuse photo quality.

    Hi Tom,
    I have never been comfortable with these crosses with the large
    oversized crown. I know that some believe they are good
    but I have also heard of a rash of fakes in this style.

    Hopefully someone else will add more but unless this were
    really inexpensive, I would wait for a nicer example.

    I'm sorry; but I don't like the way the 1813 is formed. In general it looks odd. Wait for a better example, there's plenty out there, cheers, Richard.
