    Hello Gibello,
    I believe that this is not an original cross.
    It doesn't appear to match any known maker examples.

    I have attached a couple of pictures with my observations below.
    Others may disagree with my findings but I feel it is not a cross I would feel comfortable owning as genuine but would fit nicely in to my reproduction collection


    The obverse.
    At one the detail of the sword grips is not correct for any maker of these crosses. The beading should be more elongated.
    At two the eagles seem to lack the detail that is found on originals.
    At three...I just don't like the stippled background

    On the reverse side:
    At one: I know there are a couple of known and accepted original variations of this hinge block but it should be placed on it's side to give it a more solid construction.
    At two I don't like the look of that flattened pin it reminds me too much of the pin that is marked Deschler and Sohn that is found on reproductions
