    My understanding of this type is that its a post war copy.

    Here's mine...

    So it's actually not an original exile example?

    No, hopefully at some point we can clear up all the posts and have all real examples posted with makers, if known.
    You have a good idea having a VM only thread. I've helped all I can. I have three real VMs and one copy.
    Tony has been a most helpful person with medals. He and a few others would be the most helpful with posting real examples and clearing out our mistakes.

    Ok , but save this photos for a moment. I have to show them to my seller with comments and cancel transaction ( don't want to spend cash on a fake) and lately we'll delete photos of this cross.

    Cheers.

    Hi Semper,

    Charles is correct, this appears to be a post war copy, mimicking the pre-war Jan Knedler pattern. This is not an ‘official’ issue cross for the PSZnZ. Best case scenario would be that it was owned by a veteran as a replacement cross. Although reading between the lines of your questions there may be no such a connection.

    Regards,
    Tony

    That would be good news for me as I have one in my collection but I doubt most would agree. It's actually fairly nice but not near the quality of my others.
