    It has clear casting flaws on the ends of at least 3 of the arms of the inner cross and weak detailing on the crowns.

    Thanks Jerry, I can see those as well.
    I just wonder how the dealer missed them!
    All the best

    A 'quality' casting ( I have a similar WWI version ) one of the 'better' types
    out there - it could even be made of genuine silver, but indeed, the details
    are weak compared to originals.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    complete junk - send it back. Very poorly copied cast item, heavily pitted from off gassing and the engraving is very sloppy.

    The loop for the suspension ring is crooked as well. It may well be an actual Replica rather than an outright Fake, but that's what it's evolved into at this point. As shame,as a good MC is something to have!

    Thank you all for your confirmation that this is a dud.
    I was hoping to add a '45 cross to my collection but as you see on opening the packet this is what is in it.
    I have sent a couple of messages to the seller but have had no response at all.
    I am just hoping he does not turn out to be a fraudulent crook...
    Time will tell. I will let you know
    All the best
