    Congrats. A nice tombak example. Is the ring marked?

    Thanks, I don't know if it's marked, the seller didn't mention anything so I guess not. It will be a surprice when I open the package.

    Excuse my ignorance, but what details determines it's a Tombak? (just interested to learn).

    Thanks// Al

    You can tell by the texture of the metal and the remaining finish. Most of the zinc ones have lost their color by now.
    Here are 2 nice examples from my collection.
    You can tell the difference immediately.

    Awards made of Tombak are usually in better condition and more desired. Very nice cross you won. And I agree, these crosses are very well priced and, I think, under appreciated.

    Thanks for your info guys and glad you like it! What numbers should it be marked with if it is a Tombak?

    No difference in marking between zinc and tombak pieces.

    A nice cross for a reasonable price.
    As said, an earlier piece in the higher quality tombak material. There may not be a mark on it if it is an earlier produced piece as markings were only introduced in 1942 if memory serves me correctly although this isn't a hard and fast rule and it is perfectly acceptable to find marked tombak pieces.

    Agree with the others that these are a reasonably priced award which makes it somewhat affordable to collect the 'full set' of 1st & 2nd class awards both with swords and without.
