    I will go out on a limb here and say good.

    First off, 44mm would indicate it is a Third Reich era private purchase replacement piece. Nothing to worry about there.

    Now moving onto the cross itself. I think it has had a hard life and saw a fair bit of use and lost it's original black paint. It was then repainted and then in turn this was stripped off and the whole thing then badly cleaned.

    Thoughts Gents?

    Cheers, Ade.

    I concur with Ade...nice well used (or should that be abused!) EK I, slightly vaulted...Post war piece (thats WW1).
    Prost ! Steve.
