    Yes, if it is flat and doesn´t have silver hallmark, it is surely war time awarded cross. Frank & Reif as a maker of ww1 FR crosses is still questionable statement, but the only other opportunity in this moment is that FR is - unknown.

    Yes, it´s like with women. One has nicer front, another one is more attractive from the back...

    Mine has a beautiful front and a little repair work on the back.

    The cross is perfectly flat and without any silver hallmark. Maybe there is a third possible explanation to our „FR“ conundrum: I can imagine that Friedländer, as one of the bigger makers, could temporally use slightly different style of mark at a certain point. Unlike many others, he produced the First class crosses during the whole war. But it is impossible to tell with certainty. And that is what I really like about Imperial crosses: there is still a lot of mystery! :-)


    Unimarc, Chopperman: Thank you for your kind words! :-)

    Only if he used different style of frame for that mark.
    I don´t see a match between FR and Fr. frame.
