Very rare cross !
Hi Wojtek, thanks for sharing this nice looking example. One of the rarer and most desirable of the LWP crosses. To the uninitiated, the Russians changed the date from 1920 to 1943, but overlooked removal of the eagle’s crown on this early issue. This was ‘corrected’ on subsequent stampings along with date change to 1944.
PS the ribbon appears to be pre-war vintage.
