    Hi, and welcome to the Forum. Slight overkill with the photos !

    Tough for me to see - even blown up, but Greg of course
    has nailed it.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Thank you very much for the welcome and your opinions and sorry for the many photos did not know how to delete them later.

    So the cross is good and also very beautiful, isn't it? It must have been very well maintained, in its box.

    Do not understand why it is not clear "L" (although it seems that there is one point can mean the horizontal line of this letter) and "M" has an "L" at the end (maybe a "M" but finished with a horizontal line to the right. Does have you seen another cross with the same kind of WILM's "M"? Thank you in advance

    There were plenty of shots there, but I'm sure it helped to nail this one as real....plenty of good reference shots

    here are some more examples of "Wilm" makers marks.
    Note the very bottom 2 examples are of my own cross and they seem to
    be very similar to yours.

    Chopperman, you are great! Thank you very much for the picture.

    I saw some Wilm marks but really they were perfectly "WILM". Now, for example, we can see the form of the "L" in the third picture like a "I" with a little point or triangle just on the right as mine! And on the fourth picture, I can see the "W" like mine, Mine is like two "V" and this one too!

    Nowadays I am thinking about buy the document of my cross, the seller had it separately and it cost 30 euro. He has it until 13th march in this “eBay”. And I am thinking in the purchase of it, cause I think it will be good have it if I have the opportunity.
    What do you think about the document? Original? Expensive? The name of the person who won it?

    Here the document:

    I can't help you with the document. I don't know the first thing about them.
