    I remember seeing this somewhere and if my memory is correct it was for a reasonable price. But I could be confusing it with another one as I've been looking at silver versions for an eventual purchase one day.

    I've seen a hinge set up like this before (was it Junker??).

    Would be nice to see side shots of both the hinge, catch and closer shots of the eagles.

    But I think it's a good one. Let's wait for a concensus from more people.

    Not all silver versions were in sterling. There were solid silver as well as silver plate versions. This is based on a study on WAF.

    Spanish Cross of Honor

    I have just begun studying these so am still learning so dont take my views as gosple, but I own two bronze versions myself. I have not yet found a reference book so identifying these for me is tough and trying to ID a maker is not easy either. As noted, to me it could be a Junker based on the hinge and pin (catch I'm not sure about)but better pictures are needed. There were many makers (CEJ,Junker, Meybauer, Berg & Nolte, Schickle, Deumer, etc.)

    Look at this example

    Hello Gibello,
    this cross is supposed to be one made by Meybauer,
    If it is a reproduction it is very good but there is enough wrong with it that I wouldn't feel comfortable owning this one.

    Regards
    Doug

    Thanks Doug,

    As noted I'm still learning on these. Without giving trade secrets a ways, what is it that you see that could be bad?

    In looking at other Meybauers, the block hinge on those seemed to be be a bit more robust. This one appears to be thinner (top to bottom)
