    Unfortunately this is a fake Juncker cross. Although initially it appears rather good, there are many aspects that condemn it. The wreath with the date shield is wrong, incorrect amount of notches and no flaw on the '9'. The catch is also bad, they never used a flat wire type directly soldered onto the backplate. Finally, the biggest killer, Juncker only ever made crosses with either 5 or 7 rivets, never 4!

    Regards, Ned.
