It looks like it may be o.k., I think it's pertaining to be a 6 rivet heavy type with the short pin (but that isn't shown) so let's wait until you've got it in hand and re photographed because quite frankly these pic's are crap. Then it'll be an easy call.

We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

I am liking it. but better pics to be sure.
Hi Harry & Ned,
I appreciate the input! I should have this in hand on Tuesday and if no red flags present themselves I will probably bring it home. I am buying it from a local dealer who I believe stands behind what he sells, however, if he does not offer a inspection period or guarantee authenticity I will leave it and seek another cross.
If anyone else has any thoughts on this I would love to hear it.
Thanks Very Much!
I am told, by someone who knows a lot more about these than I do, this cross is a fake. Bummer!
So the search will continue............
