    I'm not able to access a computer right now and can only see it via my phone but I'm fairly sure Rory's cross is good. I can't see any tell tale Floch features.

    I looked up flock fakes on the form Adrian, and can't see a pimple on the reverse upper right arm or excess material on the sword handles. Are there any other tell tale signs?

    cheers

    I had a search for another example of an L15 and found an origional on another forum (pics below). It seems to match mine in all the little details except mine has a bit more wear to the edges, although the other example seems to be in a lot better condition.

    The L15 seems to be a rare maker and some how i couldnt find a flock L15 to compare for some reason? If anyone has one to show it would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Rory

    Your cross is good Rory. I had a better look and would be happy to call it original.

    These were only produced for 4 months by Schickle with their LDO contract, correct?

    Yes i got most of my info on WAF also a Friedrich Orth cross? they used L15 even tho it was L14 ? Am i right in saying this would be a rare maker mark, just on WAF someone said it wasnt that rare.

    cheers
