Default DKIG review

additional, close-up pictures to share. Per page 129 of the Maerz ref, the bumps in the rays seem VERY subtle to me, when examining this particular cross - a slight flattening.
thanks - Dan

The bumps are almost impossible to photograph but in hand they are visible.
A typical trademark of the godet dkig.
This cross is a very beautiful, unmarked example.
Great wear and character!

A beautiful Godet and also one of my favourites. I have a few in my collection both the light and heavy versions. I love them.

thanks for the response and endorsement guys! … and I agree Nightstalker, it's better to view the indentations with the eye test, vice any sort of magnification.
thanks for reviewing! - I plan to keep it. Dan

Hey Ron -
The weight is 73 grams on my scale. Dietrich's reference states 70.3 grams for this variation, but my scale may be slightly off. The dimensions are a match to the reference. Thanks! - D
