    Hi Stefan,


    Itís the first one like it that I am seeing. There have been many commemorative Monte Cassino items marking the various anniversaries produced for veterans, with the 50th in 1994 being a particularly prolific year for obvious reasons. The topic of commemorative Monte Cassino items would make for an interesting thread of its own.

    But to return to the item youíve posted, it may well be legitimate although Iím wary of the inclusion of the serial number. Rather sloppy. This is evidently a direct cast copy of one of the surplus unawarded crosses, and one would expect that this number would have been removed for the final product. Also, the bright gold plating is a little bit garish when considering the original crosses were a subdued dark bronze. But having said that I have seen other commemorative pins and the like in a similar finish.

    Regards,
    Tony
