    Roger that, I'll fire up some pictures tonight (I'm still at work) Eastern Standard Time.

    The ring is only affixed to one side and curled over.

    Core is good for sure. Jumpring is big as on 1813 crosses, including mine. Shape of inside corners is definitely 1813. I would give some chance to this, although I agree with Greg, this is not typical 1813 frame.

    Here you have photos of my cross for reference.

    First let me say, I am pessimistic when it comes
    to early crosses. I've been doing this for over
    a decade and have really only seen maybe 15 or 16
    original 1813s posted on the four different forums
    I belong to. So I had my doubts when I first
    looked at your cross. However the more I looked at
    it, the more I liked it. I compared it against several
    known examples and sent copies of your pictures
    out to others with experience with these early crosses.
    ( the last photos really were a help BTW) I think it's
    pretty safe to say --------You have a perfectly fine ,
    ORIGINAL 1813 Ek2.

    Congrats Donnyboy, that is SO cool
    Enwy is a very bad think .....

    This is amazing. Greg, Micro thank you for your in depth analysis. I must say I was very doubtful.

    Another thing I noticed is that it is slightly smaller than the 1914s that I have. I'm away this weekend, however, I can send dimensions in due time.

    I received my first iron cross from my grandfather over 10 years ago. I didn't really get into collecting until recently. I'm going to let him know

    You are very welcome. It's fun for me to be
    able to give you good news. I enjoy researching
    these early ones. My 1813 is also smaller than
    the standard 1914. --- If you don't mind. Send
    me the size and weight (if possible) in a Private Message.
    I will add that and your photos to my files.

    Congrats Donny! Its good to see something so unusual turn out to be good. You must be livin' right! Chopperman, out of curiosity what would one expect to spend to acquire one of these?

    Congratulations on your good fortune Donny and well done to Greg for authenticating it!

    Nice to read a good news story once in a while, it makes a change from the threads where someone has got burned.
