    Stay clear of this one Tom its a fake

    The date, and markings, etc. give it away.

    Tom, as Lee states....repro.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Yep, as Steve and Lee have said ---FAKE.
    The quickest easiest way to know for sure. There are NO 1870 screwbacks crosses.
    Beyond that, This cross shows up all the time with a variety of different makers
    marks. Deschler and Sohn, D-S, M9, along with others. It is very easy to spot
    because of the style of the "8" in the 1870 date and also the holes in the crown.

    Here are a few more examples of this same cross---
