    The cross was originally a Screwback that has been converted to a Pinback...I have one of these conversions in my collection as well...well done, an interesting cross with character!
    cheers, Glenn

    This is the great thing about this forum i learn something every day, i never knew these conversions existed!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I like them as they're all unique...especially when it's a quality-workmanship, period conversion such as the one shown...
    cheers, Glenn

    Very interesting if you can't get a replacement screwback convert it to pin can't help but to think of the reasons why could have been done in the trenches.I have not seen this before thanks for showing both medals.

    I'm with Glenn. I like these types of crosses.
    Repairs, conversions, damage, all add to the
    history of the piece,
