    It's an odd one, but it's not right. The pin, hinge and catch are the type used by Steinhauer & Luck, and the fact that it's unmarked shows that it must be of postwar manufacture IF (That's a big if) it is by them. The real problem is the rivets. Assuming this is an S&L cross the rivets should be of a thin walled hollow variety, but they actually resemble the conical solid type used only by Juncker. So they have either been replaced at some point, or the thing is a completely made up piece.

    The wreath could be the S&L type, but it's hard to be sure with these crappy pic's, but it doesn't really matter as the cross is not of wartime manufacture and has been messed with if even made originally by S&L, as it doesn't even closely match any other known maker.

    Bit like this one Ned..?.I'm not convinced myself by this 1 that has first been posted.. it looks like it trying to be old too & not getting away with it...DKiS are pricey & you won't get a cheap 1 & if you do have a good hard look at it first before parting with your cash...

    Hi Terry,

    That sure looks like a post war S&L cross, i'm assuming it's unmarked? The one thing noticable that makes me think this is a genuine piece by them without much doubt is the silver paint that was applied over the cupal backplate, a sure sign of an original by this maker. The S&L 'scrape' on the top of the pin also points to post war production.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks Ned.. I have looked at the post war theory.. & all the evidence seemed to come to a false stop.. or a very late war one....Nobody seems to say yes to post war or very late war..so I'm happy with that..I don't mind it being a little dodgy.. lol Cheers Terry.
