    This is a modern copy. I’m a away from my archives at the moment so will strive to post a genuine example for you later.

    Cheers,

    Genuine example. There were several variants, all of which were die struck and easily differentiated from copies by the quality and sharpness of the details:

    How about the edge? Do You have some photos?

    I don't believe that I have any images from the side. Although in the case of the cross you posted a side view is not required as it is very obviously a cast replica when compared to the die stamped original.

    Because both the Polish and French made originals were die stamped you should expect the sides to have the typical characteristics such as sharp well defined and uniform edges, along with parallel striations where surfaces were not subject to manual edge finishing.
