To me it is always about condition. If it is common maker, it is easy, I would go with the the unmarked medal. Marty

Same here, you can pick up a fairly decent KO any day of the week so I'd go for the unmarked one in good condition. Who knows, perhaps the jump ring is marked, it's always worth checking.
Choose the one you like better. Both crosses are nice examples and the price is very fair, so you can't make wrong decision here. :-)
Personally, I like crosses which are often somehow imperfect and with a bit of wear. It gives them some character and the "100 years old" spirit. This is the reason why I would pick the KO cross. It has really nice silver beading which gives the whole cross very distinct, contrasting look. But that's just my personal preference. Pick the one which looks nicer to you. :-)
Although as I said, I'd go for the unmarked one, Pavel has made a very good point indeed.
I'm with Pavel on this one. Go for the one that "speaks to you".
Which ever one that might be. Unless of coarse you are just buying
as an investment. Then go for the quality.---------------------
-------But in my own case, I am a collector. I have no plans of selling
my collection so I buy the ones that catch my eye. IMO if you buy what
you like, you will get much more satisfaction from them.
