    Hello,
    I found such a cross at an auction
    the seller wrote that the ribbon is of the 1st class cross, the cross itself is 3rd class
    Can you write to me whether the cross is original?

    Hello AlienKingPL,

    You are quite correct in that it is a Commanders Cross with award case, it look fine, with a replacement ribbon.

    Best wishes

    I read a few threads and I have the impression that this cross might not have been made by Gontarczyk

    Hello AlienKingPL,

    Many thanks for your post, I would say that this was produced by the Firm of Wiktor Gontarczyk, what makes you think that it is not by the firm.

    Best wishes

    after reading this thread I thought so:

    polonia restituta commander

    because the tail is pointed and the eagle's beak is longer

    IMO this is the eagle from the cross of Gontarczyk:
    Polonia Restituta Cross with case Fake or original?

    And this is a cross for sale
    Polonia Restituta Cross with case Fake or original?

    I can see the differences
    if I am wrong, please enlighten me

    Hello AlienKingPL,

    Many thanks for your post the photographs are taken from different angles, so it is hard t say if the 2nd Eagle has an eye or not.

    Also the Dies might have been replaced over time, so it would depend on the artist designing the Dies interpretation.

    Best wishes

    Andrzej
