    The ribbon is original, as indicated by the scalloped edges.

    The cross itself looks alright to me. The misplaced ring might be a manufacturing error or makeshift repair.

    Mine to compare with. Pay attention to every edge, curve and pebble. The devil is in the details when it comes to authenticating medals and badges. I do note that in comparison to mine, the sword pommels on yours are more rounded. Otherwise it appears to be virtually identical, with the exception of a good deal more wear to the high points.

    So with the fabric defect does it loose a bit of its price?
    Is it Mint condition?

    In my opinion, this ribbon is not original to this cross.
    With the damage to the ribbon ring to occur, there would not be a new ribbon with it. That, or this cross came from a medal bar and the ribbon was added later.

    The ribbon is original, but likely not original to the medal, as indicated by the damaged ring. At least, that seems to be Ralph's verdict.

    The cross itself appears to be fine, notwithstanding the damaged ring and misplaced loop.

    Both appear original, they just did not start life together.

    Would you add this cross to your collection despite the remarks?

    It depends on the price, and if you can live with what you now know about it.
    Other than the ring, the cross appears to be in pretty good condition with all of it's finish intact.
    Also remember, they do make pretty good fakes of these and these photos are not the clearest to make a proper judgement on.
