    Cheers Tomasz ! The seller checked the cross & concurred it had been 'hand vaulted' as both you & Greg have stated !
    Thanks guys

    Hi Guys
    EK arrived this morning ! It weighs 16 gramms, the arms (at their 'widest' horizontal/vertical point) measure :
    Top: 22mm
    Right: 21.6mm
    Bottom: 22mm
    Left: 21.9mm
    The core, which is magnetic, appears to have been 'repainted' at some point, as you can see paint on the inner frame. Where it's been vaulted, the inner frame has 'bent out' slightly on a couple of inner corners & if you look closely enough the 'vaulting' is not even, ( I would have been afraid to bend it for fear of breaking this hard earnt award !).
    Kind regards
    Paul

    Hand vaulted and repainted. That tells me that the recipient was proud
    enough of his awarded cross that he chose to wear it instead of buying
    one of the more stylish private purchase crosses.
