Not my area, but will give it a shot. Not sure about this one, front seems to be ok although there is some lack of detail on the eagles, due to picture quality and poor contrast, pin does appear to be too long?. Also noticed that you can see the soldering under the catch, not good for such good quality badge. Don t know if my views make the Badge a fake one or not. Wait for other members opinions, since I may be wrong

While I own one I am myself not an expert. But the one thing I notice is the the Eagles do not appear to be welded separately to the cross. I thought that this is typical of originals. Or maybe this feature is just typical with those with swords. Look at mine for comparison.

But please wait for others with some more experience.
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

Hinge pin may possibly have been replaced, but other than that, it looks to be an original unmarked Bronze grade Spanish Cross without Swords. Prices and values on these can vary considerably. Emedals, for example, has an identical piece available for $1,050.

Of emedals I've seen very similar to the one I bought.
Gibello it is the same one see the tarnish on the arm.
It's the same, is the store where I bought so I ask your opinion, to know what you think.
