There's more pictures of the cross, but I think this might be enough

Would nowadays big auction house not trustworthy? I'm not in Europe nor Amercia I'm with the mind that only pure genuine items are held for sale. Like in this case I believe they have a big team of medal specialist to identify the authenticity before holding the items for sale.

Therefore I would love to hear more opinions here in the view that people here are specialised in particular types of medals

That cross is a well-known fake.

Compare with an original below.

There are many differences in the core design, construction technique, materials, frame, etc.
