    Hi all,

    First I want to thank you so much Antoni for information about my cross which I own and was in my family for so many years arousing no one's interest. So now I know it's the Albin Różycki made. I put photo here for reference. Yes the ribbon & ring is wrong and for some reason, someone want to remove a crown but it's still visible under the magnifying glass. Now need to find correct ribbon and frame it !
