    i like the second one the first however i have doubts about it being original as there is the bar going across the top (not seen one like it)
    Tom, evaluate the whole piece, not just a single issue. Does the rest of the cross look ok? Just because you may not have seen something like this, does it make it any less original? Why not ask the question or query the bar across the top prior to voicing doubts over a perfectly original EK?
    As the guys have said, both perfectly original crosses and the repair does not devalue the award at all. In fact I would choose an example like this over and above a regular cross.

    Thanks Carl Always nice to be useful for a change. I have to agree with the others that the repair makes this cross more attractive

    Guys what about the date? The two ''1'' are different. One thick, one slim.

    And why is that significant in itself? These are not computer fonts, my friend. This is a common characteristic on many EKs IMO.

    Yep, nothing to worry about, the date numerals are not and should not be carbon copies of each other. Imperial EKs vary alot in many aspects. Take a look at some TR EKs too, you find the numerals differ on these too!

    I agree with the 'yea' comments in regard to these crosses. They are both good.

    WWI EKII's are still very common today and can usually be bought
    for about $70 on average - with or without maker marks.

    Still good to post them for opinions though, because
    there are many fakes too !

    I don't know, i'm still learning on these.

    I remember some WWII EKs which had been rejected here due to the numerals not being textbook, or alike to each other.

    I was wondering if the same applies to WWI EKs or if it's just conventional to see differential fonts in the date.
