    @Ralph, thanks for the pictures. Yours looks good. The core looks similar to mine, but the frame is not the same.
    @Greg, I will take some better pictures. I really need a better camera. Or better photography skills. Or both. But as pretty as it is in hand, I have my serious doubts about this one. Might just keep it as a desk ornament. It really shines!

    OK, I went and sprung for a new camera. Here are the results.
    All opinions welcome.

    Will have to attach Obverse Date later, it was rotated sideways. (Fixed it and figured out how to get the bad one out of there)

    Quite honestly, I don't know what to make of this cross.
    The core design is consistent with known KAG variations.
    The cross is so shiny and and there is enough glare in the
    picture, I can't get a good read on the frame. Plus, I don't
    have very good original pictures to compare it against.

    It could be a overly polished and repainted original or it could
    be something that was just made yesterday. --I just don't know.

    Well, Greg, thanks for trying. I'll keep playing with the camera and see if I can get a good shot of the frame. It is quite a challenge to photograph really shiny stuff. I appreciate you taking the time to look. And I apologize for the poor pictures. I've got some learning to do.
