    Hello Kosowski85,



    May I be the first to welcome you to the forum.

    With regards to the Cross of Valour shown it dates from 1993, produced in Poland these appear from time to time with different ribbons.

    The sure give away is the sword guard with the upturned edges.

    Once again welcome to the forum

    Best wishes

    Andrzej

    Witam Andrzej and thanks for the welcome.

    It is great to have such knowledgable people on here, as my collection is small (as is my financial means!) and I'd like to be confident in investing in something with real historical value.

    The alternative I was looking at is the LWP example? The seller suggests it is a 44/45 example from Moscow? Again any opinions would be very much appreciated.

    Hello Kosowski85,

    Yes, your seller is absolutely right. This KW was made in Moscow (USSR), the Moscow-mechanical stamping plant in 1944-1945. Position in Krogulec reference - L3.
    Hook on the ribbon is likely made the owner of this KW

    Best wishes, Sergei.

    Thank you Sergei!

    Is the 'reverse' ribbon a trait of Soviet made KW? I've not seen it often, but then as you can tell I am a complete novice on the matter.

    Ribbons for Soviet-made KW sewn at the top.

    Here is a posthumous award of KW to a soldier of 18th (Lwowski) Rifle Battalion, 6th Lwow Infantry Brigade.
    I spoke to Andrzej to see if this soldier was awarded a Monte Cassino Cross, however he is not listed.
    Andrzej told me that the soldier died July 4th 1944 and is buried in Loreto Cementary in Italy.
    In my opinion he either got skipped when they were giving out Monte Cassino crosses, or he was a late replacement, possibly serving in german army before and coming to 18th Rifle after Monte Cassino.

    Hallo, Iron Hussar!
    Are you interested in the authenticity of the cross or the type?

    Hi GraphiKS,

    Authenticity I am very much looking forward to getting one of these into my collection. It looks good to me, but I'm not sure about the font on the 1920...

    There is no reason for concern. Small KW Knedler (Krogulec # 5 ) has just such a font 1920.
    Krogulec: «Figures date considerably higher and have a different typeface».
    I wish You a good purchase!
